And all through the house.
Not a creature was stirring
except for poor Ralph.
White curtains were hung
‘round the windows with care.
But Ralph’s belly was rumbling,
and he didn’t care…
I bet by now you’re catching the drift of our little Christmas Eve adventure. We’ll just say that Ralph definitely lived up to his name when he, umm, Ralphed all over a curtain panel.
Maybe he caught a bug? Or just got a wee bit too excited about the Christmas toys to come? It’s anyone’s guess, but one thing was for sure: we had a dirty panel to scrub down.
Now, I know curtains are notorious for shrinking in the wash, but finding a drycleaner open on Christmas is a rare feat. I read all of the online product reviews and how-tos, but my stubborn side convinced the I’m-warning-you side that these curtains would not shrink.
After scrubbing, washing, line drying and ironing, my I’m-warning-you side quickly morphed into my I-told-you-so side…
This shorty panel will soon find itself a nice new home behind the sofa, and if you are wondering if Ralph still received his presents after his untidy incident…
You betcha. Spoiled. Rotten.
