I tried to be creative in this year's Christmas letter. Did you read it? I posted it here. I got a good laugh out of it. I chuckled for at least a week imagining my mom's face when she read the blurb in April. Turns out she read it first thing in the morning - say 6 a.m. and almost called me RIGHT THEN, which would have been 3 a.m. my time. Luckily for her and for me, she read the whole letter. My dad started reading the letter and got interrupted. He ended up calling to find out the details. That was a fun conversation! We both laughed a lot.
I have been asked about my tattoo twice in the last 2 days.
The lesson I learned from this year's Christmas letter? Not everyone reads the whole Christmas letter. It is a busy time of year.
Here's what I keep wondering: Did my blog readers read the whole letter? Not one comment mentioned my little joke. Did you think it was funny? More than that, I keep wondering if my grandparents and my great aunt and other wonderful relatives (that might be stunned by tattoos) read the entire letter.
I also keep wondering what I am going to do with next year's letter.
