Christmas in El Paso, Texas has been sensational so far. Mom and Tom are a delight, the Christmas Eve Eve tradition with Jamie was a smashing success, I pulled an all-nighter with a charming individual, and I have eaten at least half my weight in treats that are usually prohibited.
My parents were part of today's Christmas program at church, and since they were up in the stands, I sat with my pal Hayley Smith (a Bostonian who shares my locational roots). Church was gorgeous and spiritual and Christmassy and full of family fun, but apparently we weren't moved quite enough because we immediately stole away for a Sunday drive. On our adventure, we found an open Sonic (at 10:30am! A Christmas miracle!) and got Cherry Vanilla Dr. Peppers. I know, I know. I shouldn't have done it, but come on! An open Sonic! On Christmas day!
Today's audio goodness: Car Talk with Hayley. We discuss El Paso's high-class rock walls and Drive-by Shooting!, the favorite game of my youth. And as a holiday bonus, you get one of the best Christmas moments ever captured on video. You're welcome.
Happy Christmas everyone.
THE SUNDAY SOUND: December 25, Christmas Car Talk.
