I saw this today and it reminded me of a funny story I thought I'd share. I almost always host my family's Christmas celebration at my house. A few years ago, my brother was late getting there. At the time, he was a Fed-Ex delivery guy and because of the holiday rush was working late on Christmas Eve. Tanner, the oldest nephew, was getting impatient and wanted to open his presents but we kept telling him that we had to wait for Uncle Travis to get there. So here's a paraphrase of the conversation...
T: Why isn't Uncle Travis here yet? We wanna open our presents!! (insert whiny tone)
Us: We've told you already. Uncle Travis is at work delivering packages. He can't come over until he's all finished. It's important that he get all the packages delivered cuz tomorrow is Christmas.
T: (in complete serious wide-eyed kid amazement asks)
Is Uncle Travis an Elf?!
After we stopped laughing, I said "Well, I guess in a way... he sorta is."
True story. I swear. Ask my sister. She was there, too. Hilarious!
