A Very Scary Christmas

December 24, 2007

On this night of love and good cheer, children everywhere are staving off visions of sugar plums as they wait for Santa Claus.

My nine-year-old nephew is in a similar state of expectation, though his intentions might be slightly different: he has built a bunker overlooking the fireplace, and he’s heavily armed with a Nerf sniper rifle, Nerf grenade launcher, and Nerf six-shooter. He’s hopped-up on Mountain Dew, and he’s got this crazy look in his eye.

Watch out, Santa.
