What is the most interesting Christmas tree decoration you have ever owned? We purchased a very heavy hot dog ornament after the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004, then proceeded to hand paint ‘Boston Red Sox – World Series Champs 2004) on the side of the bun. I guess we associated the hot dog with a Fenway Frank, although it seems very strange now that I look back on it.
If you can only keep one of the following side dishes for this year’s holiday dinner, which one would it be? Creamed Pearl Onions, Green Bean Casserole, Jell-O Salad, or Mincemeat Pie? Hands down, the creamed pearl onions.
What’s the strangest thing you have ever used/seen used for wrapping paper? A couple of years ago, I purchased a kitchen island for my wife. While she was at work I assembled it. Realizing it would take a ridiculous amount of wrapping paper, I decided to go with one of those large blue plastic tarps. Classy? No. Effective? Yes.
Which of your Customer Relations coworkers would be the best department store Santa? Without a doubt, Ken Garavaglia would be a great Santa. He spends days, and I mean days, putting up lights and lawn decorations for the holidays. I believe he shared the story last year that a local news station actually did a live weather forecast from his house. With all that holiday cheer, seems like that would make him a shoe-in to be the perfect department store Santa.
If you had to live in a Christmas holiday movie, which one would you choose? Elf. Aside from getting to pal around with Buddy all the time, who wouldn’t want to have the ‘world’s best coffee’ each and every morning?
