without a definite route

holiday poem

on December 4, 2008

we’ve been evited to attend a christmas eve gathering. my reply was something boring like, “we’ll be there!” i like it when people put effort into their evite responses, but i am not very good at the wittiness myself. i’m not un-funny, but i’m not quick punchline funny, either. some have said that i am situationally funny rather than clever funny. i can live with that. josh, on the other hand, is crazy with the funny. he is the clever one in the family. he cracks me up. and he wildly exceeded my expectations with his witty reply:

unless i can pull a trick out of my sleeve

i’m scheduled at elmo on christmas eve

i’d rather be there drinking vegan egg nog

watching beck-n-dave stress from the bark of the dog

i’ll try my hardest and see what i can do

cuz what’s a christmas party without a token jew?!
