There, I said it.
My older boys have been asking for one, they’re 8 and 6, and clearly falling prey to the assault of Elf On The Shelf propaganda flooding the interwebs this time of year. I simply told them we don’t need a stupid elf to tell Santa if they’ve been good or not because I’ll just call him myself and I see EVERYTHING, so having an elf around would be kind of pointless and definitely redundant.
Besides, I’m far scarier than some kewpie faced man doll with mitten hands anyway, and definitely a more reliable source.
My general EOS annoyance doesn’t mean that I’m 100% immune to the appeal, but mostly I like to laugh at the Elf On The Shelf posts that aren’t for kids anyway and probably NSFW either. At any rate, these types of Elf On The Shelf efforts are right up my alley.
So let’s have a laugh (a grown up one) and no more photos of your dumb elf making snow angels in the flour from your pantry, plz. Kthanksbye!

This should be enough to get me through the holiday season, now back to your regularly scheduled candy cane skiing down a marshmallow run type of Elf On The Shelf posts instead.
