red-nosed reindeer

December 18, 2004

this morning i was in the kitchen rolling out marzipan for our christmas cake.
isabel asked if the marzipan was playdoh. when i said it wasn't, she went and got her yellow playdoh out and started rolling that out.

we were listening to her christmas tape, which is a mix of kids christmas songs, happy clappy christian songs and proper carols. rudolph the red-nosed reindeer came on. i was listening to the words and said to mattgreen, "this song has pretty much the same moral values as the rainbow fish! essentially all the reindeer hate you, then all of a sudden once you're picked for the team they start wanting to be your mates!"

mattgreen replied, "the moral of the story is if you suck up to your boss, all your colleagues will suddenly start giving you some respect. maybe it should be called rudolph the brown-nosed reindeer instead?"
