A VERY Merry Christmas

As I drive though my town this holiday season I am greeting with wonderful and festive greetings on all of the business' reader boards.

"50% off gingerbread lattes! This week only!"

"Santa arrives 12/13 at 7pm! Free coffee and cookies!"

A few daring businesses will post something such as, “He is the reason for the season!” or a even the recently offensive,“Merry Christmas!”

“Happy Holidays!” seems to be the safest and most common reader board greeting in the last few years. It’s all inclusive and minimally offensive.

Some businesses take an even safer route by simply thanking their customers for another successful year. As I drove to the grocery store this morning I saw that the local storage facility had decided to take the safer route. Their reader board was thanking their customers.

And then I turned the corner and saw the definitely not the safe route, back side of the reader board.


Now that’s one holiday greeting I definitely haven’t seen before.

The Lunch of the Month here at Slightly Exaggerated is most delicious and super easy. Spread some pre-made pesto on top of any type of flatbread. We are partial to tandoori nan, the Indian flatbread. Then top with grated mozzarella and chopped tomatoes. Broil until it looks good. Sometimes I'll fold it in half and put it in the boy's and teenager's lunches.

I think I saw the teenagers responsible for this victim-less crime last night. Last night I worried they were hoodlums... today I think they're the cause of the funniest thing I've seen in suburbia in a long time!
If I could stop laughing I MIGHT be annoyed!! But I can't.... LOL!

It is a testament to our fine schools that these kids spelled wiener correctly. That can be a hard spell. And yes I can be more juvenile than the juveniles.

I think that's a perfectly appropriate holiday greeting. After all, isn't that what every guy wants for Christmas?

Wow! See, I thought wiener was spelled weiner. I guess it's true. You DO learn something new every day.

Who knew?
