A Holiday visitor for everyone

No, not this guy.

Ol' Tubby here only visits the homes of good little girls and boys.

That's discrimination, I say.

And even if he does come to your house, he stays for... what? A nanosecond? You can barely make out the prancing and pawing of any reindeer at all up on the roof -- and you put out cookies and milk and he takes maybe a nibble of one and a sip of the other.

Clearly, he's trying to cram too much into too little time.

No, we have a Holiday visitor who doesn't care if you're good or bad, young or old, or what church you attend, or even if you attend church at all. He's out there looking for you right now. And here he is:
Meet Boogaloo Bug, the Holiday visitor who always seems to stop by during the Christmas season -- and who always overstays his welcome.

Because he's not welcome at all.

Last night, in the wee small hours of the morning, Boogaloo Bug came to our house to visit Oldest Son. We found Oldest Son on the couch in the den this morning, TV on, bucket near his head... just in case he couldn't get where he needed to get fast enough.

We'd like Boogaloo Bug to leave now, before he visits the rest of us, too.

But I don't like the odds.

Oh no, we've had the bug and his relatives since Thanksgiving!

I hope your bug leaves before he makes any more friends, he's no fun.

Oh no, C-man! The Wahs have had our share of sickly Christmases. We certainly feel for you and your family.

Don't forget to take your vitamins, extra vitamin C, and Echinacea. I hope that nasty bug leaves soon.
