‘Tis the season…

She has the jacket unzipped, so you can see the deep neckline of her light blouse.And all you can think about is slowly walking up to her, putting your hands on her shoulder, looking her deep into those gorgeous eyes and…

…shaking the hell out of her, while loudly shouting “Do you want to get sick? DO YOU?!”

Dad: Now we wait for your mother to come back from work and tell us what we did wrong.
