I WON CHRISTMAS!  How?  Every year my brother and I have a gift giving duel over my father, he being or provider we kinda go nuts.  I planned this time, staked out deals during Black Friday, took out extra money as a “student loan” and today I struck.  We began with small arms, wallet, he returned with BB gun ammo.  I escalated to shoes and two pair of jeans and he returned with a BB gun.  Then the big guns, he presented a new slip differential cover and he looked at me cockily when the paper came off the 20″ LCD TV FOR THE KITCHEN!!!  Now he can watch Victory at Sea and other 1950s movies in colors that hadn’t been invented yet.  And with that, I proved that I was a better son by spending more money.  If money can’t buy love, what can?
