The Fart that ruined X-mas

So sad. While running errands we had the idea to go swing by the Christmas tree tent in the Don Quijote parking lot. It's fun we just pull up along side the open flap and inhale the aroma of lovely Christmas conifers.

But someone had to pass gas in the car. (For the record it was not me.)

And no matter how hard I sniffed, or how far I hung my head out the window. I could not even catch a whiff of tree. I just couldn't escape the smell. The smell that ruined Christmas.

C'mon you can tell us who it was... was it Josh or Daniel? ;) J/K

i hate it when something like this happens.

one year we had something similar happen... only it was the gas from a truck in front of us that ruined it all...

Now I will think of this story every time I pass that Don Quijote. Speaking of trees, if you haven't already gotten one you should check out Helemano Farms in Wahiawa. They have very cool Norfolk pines (not really a "pine") that you can choose on site and they will chop it for you there. Very affordable, PLUS no mainland invasive species included, and the tree stump will regrow! We just got ours yesterday. It definitely gives Christmas an island feel.

well Jorge, you have so much time to pass over this awful episode...and breathe again the xmas atmosphere

any witness that can state you are 'not guilty'?

I'm still trying to reconcile the whole Christmas tree smell thing in Hawaii. You'd think since I live in Southern California it wouldn't be such a problem. But it is. Just one of the quirks that makes me, me.

Well, sorry to say, Jorge, but I think this Christmas is a wash for you. Sigh. There's always next year. Just kidding. We're going out this weekend to get our tree, eat cookies, drink hot cider and eggnog and do the Rocky Horror Christmas Story thing. You know, where we all say the words along with the screen: "You'll shoot your eye out!" and the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring. I ask you, does it get any better than that? Post a picture of your tree!

LOL! It must've been either my step-father or my ex-boyfriend.

MNE said...

Hey, at least you know what offer this guy for X-mas... a cork.
That's the advantage of hanging with us girls... we don't do this kind of thing :)

I passed a fair bit of gas today so i'm assuming it was me.

Deneph said...

I can honestly say this was my least favorite Rankin Bass Christmas special

pichuneke said...

There is a Don Quijote in Hawaii!

I live in La Mancha. Everything here is Don Quijote. Quijote Arena, Quijote Airport, the future casinos of Reino de Don Quijote...

I believe that in japan everything is Fuji. Fuji mountain, Fuji Film...

I hate Quijote. If I were japanese I would hate Fuji. But I am spanish.
