AAUGH Blogger: Hey, Nat, what’s that you got there?
Nat: It’s the A Charlie Brown Christmas Mini Puzzles box set thingy.
AAUGH Blogger: Oh, a thingy, is it? What has it got in it.
Nat: It has these two bags of very small jigsaw puzzle pieces.
AAUGH Blogger: Do they go together into two very small jigsaw puzzles?
Nat: I presume so. But very small pieces. Thick, aging fingers. Not a combination I feel like trying today. But it also has this two-sided mini-poster thingy, with Tom Brannon images of A Charlie Brown Christmas.
AAUGH Blogger: Are the images on that thingy the same images that are on the jigsaw puzzle?
Nat: Again, I can only presume so. But if so… well, if you believe like I do that a jigsaw puzzle is just a poster that’s been delivered in a very inefficient manner, this just makes the whole thing redundant.
AAUGH Blogger: Is there… maybe… is there also a book?
AAUGH Blogger: Is it… is it an A Charlie Brown Christmas book?
Nat: Well, the cover says Peanuts A Charlie Brown Christmas Sticker Book.
AAUGH Blogger: IS IT A BOOK ADAPTATION OF A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS? Isit isit isit???
Nat: It’s just got eight stickers inside.
AAUGH Blogger: ARE THE STICKERS SUFFICIENTLY INFORMATIVE AND IN PROPER ORDER THAT, IN LOOKING THROUGH THEM YOU GET THE STORY OF A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS?!
AAUGH Blogger: …
Nat: But it’s all in a little box that should fit well in a Christmas stocking, if one wants to celebrate Christmas on Christmas and the days following.
AAUGH Blogger: …
Nat: To make up for your obvious holiday-related disappointment, let me show you this photo I took of a front lawn in my suburban neighborhood this morning.
AAUGH Blogger: That looks… sincere!
Nat: Yes, it does.
