a: Not gonna lie, S. There will always be a special place in my little, jaded heart for A Manheim Steamroller Christmas.

(Song changes to something awful by Michael Bolton)
a: Ahem. This no talent a## clown on the other hand……
S: Oh come on….
a: No way. G can have him.
(At the office Christmas party, I picked out a signed headshot of Michael Bolton – with two Subway gift cards attached – in the White Elephant exchange, which was immediately stolen from me by a coworker)
S: Do I sense some bitterness?
a: It hurts.
S: But it’s Christmas. Now’s the time to find it in your heart to forgive him.
a: Yeah, I know. These things just take time to heal.
