Electric Sex Gleaming in the Window

The dog and I ventured out this evening for a walk. It's about 25 degrees out there. I wanted to see some Christmas lights. I know the Dog Whisperer would frown upon my dog walking habits, but you can't look straight ahead when there are bright, shiny lights everywhere. We made our way to the street that goes above and beyond house lighting decor. This street usually never disappoints. Maybe I was a little too early tonight because I was disappointed until that is, I looked up at a house with just the living room light on. No Christmas lights, no wreath on the door, not even a inflatable snowman in the yard. But what I saw glowing brightly in the window was worth the walk in the cold, dark night and being dragged by the dog, for there in the window was a Leg Lamp. Just like the one in the movie A Christmas Story.

One of my favorite quotes from the movie:

"Only one thing in the world could've dragged me away from the soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window."
I stood in front of the house for a couple minutes admiring the lamp and the sense of humor the people that live there have. Merry Christmas to them and thanks for making my walk memorable!
