My brother and I are always very proud of the fact that we can do our Christmas shopping at lightning speeds. We succeed where others fail. What’s that you say? Christmas Eve? You haven’t even set foot in a store? It’s the last moment and the pressure is on? Not a problem. This is our specialty. This is where we are vikings. Christmas shopping vikings.
We’ll race to the store at the frenzied pace that only experienced last minute speed shoppers can handle. With the utmost dexterity we maneuver through the aisles like a motorcyclist through rush hour traffic. With laser like precision our steely gaze sweeps over the store ready to make split-second decisions. What’s this?? A Mr. Potato Head with Optimus Prime features?? Boom. Done. What’s that?? An Alyssa Milano movie that went straight to DVD?? Affirmative. Pull the trigger. Don’t think twice.
We proceed in this fashion, moving at a rabid pace until we make our way through the express line and back home again, having returned victorious, in our plunder.
Also, I have no idea where I came up with the idea for an Al Roker lawn gnome, but c’mon…tell me that wouldn’t be totally sweet!
