Oh, vindication, O sweet truth

Ok, so I just read the most touching and amusing story I've read about the holiday season in many years.
It brought a twinkle to my eye and a chuckle to my belly.
I'd love to make a film short of this. A docudrama, if you will.
this is so beautiful

` I LOVES IT!!!! ALl the teachers should do this! I would have appreciated greatly - my dad said he believed in Santa Claus, so I continued until I was nine.
` I'm actually puzzled, though, that so many parents would be upset! I'd think they might be relieved.
` And it's 'unfortunate' that there isn't...a Santa Claus policy? WTF!? And then, this little girl has refused to stop believing in Santa Claus and write him a letter? That's just sad.

` Also, who names a town Lickdale?

` Meh. Well, if it makes you feel any better, Amber, I'm not having a very merry $mas, as you can see from my blog.

Who the heck does that woman think she is? When kids are told there's no such thing as Santa Claus they need to be told that by somebody they trust. NOT some jackass substitute music teacher who enjoys making little girls cry. She's a fucking substitute teacher, why the hell didn't she do what the regular teacher told her to do? She couldn't just read the story, she had to put her own two cents in. That's the problem with the educational system today, teachers are too quick to jump up on their soapbox and preach to the kids rather than teaching them. I'm surprised she didn't tell those kids that there is no god, and that they were conceived by their parents having sex. Then again, she probably doesn't have as much experience with that as she does the history of St. Nicholas.

` Check it out!!!

Aaron said...

Hey Amb-o, what's up? Did your mothership lose connection with Earth's 'Internet'?

Hey, I'm gonna be out that way this thursday and friday. Let me know what you're up to, maybe we could have a drink or something.

Amber said...

damn, I tried doing a nice post last night with pictures and all, and it wouldn't go through. I'll try again tonight.
I'll be around, in fact Tom and I got a certificate to Schlafly's tap room, it's downtown. We'd be up for a drink. On Thu. I pick Tom up at 8:30 so Friday would probably be better for us. Where are you staying?

S E E Quine said...

` It wouldn't go through? Man, I hate it when that happens!! Good luck!

i agree with a-ron!
that's like telling someone there is social security you pay your whole life so you can retire, and then find out it was just a joke!!

Amber said...

so,
You're saying that you prefer to be lied to until the last moment, and then be told to go fuck yourself and pay for your own stuff??
