“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Christmas Conundrum on Coconut Drive
Friday, December 25, 2009

Okay, so everything was going well this year at Christmas for the subtropic Hudlers when these two pouty party crashers appeared:





I asked them their names. "Bobby," they replied, cryptically, with no other details. So I am calling them Bobby I and Bobby II. All I can say is they are very quiet and shallow.

For most of the day Bobby I (Santa hat) was sequestered in my bathroom, and he scared the bejesus out of me when I ran in midday to pee.

As of 9:36 p.m. they both were still here. My daughter seems to be enamored with them. She engaged them in a game of Freeze Tag. She appears to be winning.

"Where will they sleep?" I asked.

"Oh, they can stay in my room," daughter jumped in.

"Absolutely not," I said. And I blew up the Aerobed and put it in the bed of my pickup truck, where they will stay until further notice.

Obviously, more on this later.
