Merry Christmas! And a Happy New Ear!

I finally got around to putting up my Christmas lights today. Spent a couple of hours climbing up and down the ladder, hanging lights, and finally reached the last step, hanging the flashing "Merry Christmas" light rope.

Now people had been walking by all afternoon, looking at me hanging the lights and saying things like: "Wow!" "Beautiful!" "Spectacular!" And their comments about the lights were even more effusive!

Then a group of Southeast Asian workers came by as I was hanging the last light, and were giggling and talking together. One guy wanted to be friendly, I guess - I heard him say something about the lights in Japanese, then he decided to sing an appropriate song instead:

"Happy Birthday to You!"...

Laughed so hard, I almost fell off the ladder
