33. If I wrote a hyperbole-and-a-half story about a childhood Christmas, it might not be so funny.

Maybe it would be if I tried really hard, but mine wasn't a flying Jesus doll beaten with a stick -- it was thrown crockery, knives raised in anger, and a grandpa taking a crying grandma home before Christmas diner was served.

Others were too drunk to drive and they knew enough not to, so they just crashed anywhere. Mostly their aim was good when they crawled to the bathroom to puke. Now that's a polite house guest!

Crying grandma was probably the only "normal" person in our Addams family household but nobody else saw it that way. Everyone just figured grandma had some kind of nervous disorder. Sectarian violence is a normal part of any Christmas celebration, right? You all know Christ wasn't born in December and Christmas trees are pagan? Right?

I always wanted a novice level HAM radio or a computer for Christmas but I never got one.

Later I discovered the interenet. After that I had no regrets about those Christmas wishes I was never granted. Now I have a supercomputer under my desk connected to a world wide web.

In your dreams, Santa!
