'Tis The Season...For A Good Chainsaw Massacre

The Christmas spirit is alive and well at your local Sonic restaurants. When a carhop brought my lunch yesterday, I greeted him with a hearty "How's it goin'?" To which he replied,

"Oh, I'm here...course I'd rather be home...watching a scary movie...lying in bed..."

(Students of literature will instantly recognize this line as the original ending to Clement Moore's Twas the Night Before Christmas.)

I gave him an awkward retort about having a happy holiday, bid him farewell, and immediately checked to see what "extra toppings" he may have added to my burger. I'm pretty sure those were mushrooms.

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.
