Christmas Eve morning.
The strains of Handel's Messiah are emanating from the CD player.
"Who may abide the day of His coming, and who shall stand when he appeareth?" demands the alto.
Joy punches a button on her Sesame Street toy.
And up stands: "This is the song, la-la-la-la, ELMO's song, HA-ha-ha-ha!"
We have our answer, folks. I never before did think of the significance of the "El" in "Elmo"...
And with that bit of theological malpractice, I wish you all the merriest of Christmases!
P.S. I treadmilled 5K today. In just under 34 minutes!
