Blessed are the easily amused, for they shall be.

Tomorrow is bulk trash day, so after I got home I decided to get off my duff and actually haul the crud that's been lingering for months* around the side yard out to be taken away. Lots of stuff. Lots of heavy stuff.

Me: *staggers back in the house, giggling maniacally*
J.: What's up?
Me: You know those huge lighted nativity standups that the previous owners left behind?
J.: Yeah?
Me: Well, when we had the hedges trimmed last time, the workers stacked some of them against the wall in a rather... unfortunate manner.
J.: What, are the reindeer humping or something?
Me: No, but we currently have a wise man fisting a camel.
J.: ...
Me: I didn't toss them, I think I want to leave them like that and then just plug them in that way this December.
J.: are a bad, bad person.

*Due to stupid HOA-type restrictions, you're only allowed to put your bulk stuff out something like 48 hours before pickup, which is approximately 6:30 AM on the 4th Monday of the month. So if you had anything else to do that weekend or just end up getting busy with other things, you usually end up missing your window for the month.
