This year's holiday card, part 1.

I usually Photoshop something or add a caption to a picture I stole or do a straight up cartoon. This is the first time I've done all three.

The story: Molly and I were driving home one night and we saw people decorating their house for Christmas. A man was stringing lights in the bushes and another was in an upstairs window, trying to shove an inflated Santa out a second story window.

The novelist in me said, "Looks like Santa's got some bad debt."

Molly delivered the punchline: "I can pay you in cookies on the 26th, man. I promise."

It made me laugh. I hope it made you laugh, too.

That kind of explains the year I thought I had someone else's gifts. Now I wonder who had mine. Did anyone out there unexpectedly get roller skates, fishnets and a black garter belt in 1973?

Brilliant. I hear Hallmark calling.
