Different Point Of View

To my son Tommy,

When you see our Christmas tree, you do not see something to be decorated and admired.  No, not at all.  You see an efficient system to display toys on a pyramid of green for your choosing to increase your play time satisfaction.  It is more an organizing system than a symbol of the holiday.  Unfortunately, your idea of what a Christmas tree is clashes with your mom's image and ideal.  I am taking bets now for who will win the battle.  If your mother was in perfect health, odds would be against you.  Since we are still at "six geese a laying" in our surgery countdown and your mother is feeling every bit of her discomfort, the odds have evened out with you might even having a slight edge.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
