D had a date with two lady-friends this past weekend while Mama and Papa went to a wedding. Apparently, that's when the obsession began. Why these two seemingly intelligent females would have busted out the green two weeks before Thanksgiving is beyond me. I suppose all that retail therapy has finally begun to short-circuit their otherwise well-functioning brains. Guess we'll have to be getting our own tannenbaum up lickety-split...or not.
