"You put the damned thing out, I don't wanna get near it!"
In addition to having a snake phobia, he also has a reindeer phobia.
Admittedly, our friend 'Rusty Sparkles' doesn't look much like a typical reindeer. What with being metal and covered with sparkles. But I think that if Rusty were around the entire year, instead of just the month leading up to Christmas, Ecky would come to accept him (her) as a beloved member of the family.
Tinsel, iron framework, glittery crap, and lights.
A walking advertisement for tetanus.
Good thing I've had a shot.
After putting out Rusty Sparkles, and plugging him (her) in, I lit up a bowlful of flake and fixed myself the first of many cups of tea. By the middle of the day I was wired to the tits.
None of my coworkers are good with animals.
All in all, a good day.
