You Better Watch Out

You better not cry and all that nonsense because Santa’s kicking the cruelty up a notch this year. I opened my mailbox earlier this week and what to my wondering eyes should appear but the Franklin Covey Holiday Gift Guide – 2009 edition.
I was intrigued. The cover stated that Franklin Covey had an array of gifts for both the nice among us AND the naughty. I thought they just sold planners and stuff made out of leather. Well, Boy Howdy was I wrong.

The first few pages do show planner after planner in various sizes and varieties. BUT, when you get to page 7, you find the truth. Can you handle the truth kids?
That’s right. If you don’t behave yourself this year, you may end up with a $50 red pen in your stocking and there won’t be anything you can do about it. It’s Franklin Covey’s answer to coal for Christmas of ’09. Stick that in your smoking device, light it and inhale.

    Wouldn’t it be funny if it were one of those water pins with the lady in the bathing suit?! Do you remember those? If you tipped them a certain way, you got an eye-ful. That would be one funny “naughty” Cross pen!

    You make me laugh. And for Monday morning that is saying something!

    Whew, and I thought I was just going to get a lump of coal and underwear for Christmas this year.

    So I guess this means that I can give red pens as a subtle way of judging people now. “Thanks so much for the red pen!” “You’re welcome *smirk*”

    Well, that’ll show them. Take that, naughty person!

  6. Oh you have put up a photo of Wanda! She is a cutie patootie.


    • She certainly has more attractive pictures than the one I put on the sidebar but her facial expression is priceless. It’s her frequent look of slight disapproval. I get the feeling she thinks the rest of us are a bit off.
