Today, I drove by a house that had several of those inflatable yard decorations out front. I'm sure that it was intended to be a festive scene of Christmas cheer, but unfortunately, the inflatables had lost all their air: Rudolf, Santa, a giant snowman and Garfield in a Santa hat were sprawled on the grass, looking like the victims of a drive-by shooting. Or maybe they were just lying there in a drunken holiday stupor. Whatever.
The point is, if you are going to decorate your yard with those things, you have a duty to the community to not give the rest of us the wiggins by seeing Santa Claus in such an undignified position. It's just wrong. Wrong! There is never a good time for anyone -- even those of us constructed of nylon and latex -- to be lying face-down in the grass.
Get busy with that air compressor.
