A couple of weekends ago, we went to the GE Kids Holiday Party held out in Waukesha. The tone was set for the day when we opened the front doors and saw the non-perishable food item collection barrels, and the joyous GE volunteers accepting canned goods for the local food pantry. Our stomachs sank when we realized we forgot our donation. There was a monetary collection basket we were able to contribute to, however, so we felt somewhat redeemed.
We then settled into the back of the ballroom stage area to watch the childrens magician perform. The G man had no interest in the guy’s shtick though, so that bit of entertainment was short lived.
Daddy then said, I know…let’s go visit Santa! After 45 minutes of standing in line, it was finally our turn. Upon which we proceeded to snap this gem… G Money sits for no man in a funny red suit.
Things got marginally better when G was given a mini candy cane from Mrs. Claus and shoved the whole thing in his mouth. He then proceeded to have the largest volume of drool I’ve ever seen.
Following which we decided to pick up our free gift and get the heck out of there. Needless to say, things at the Kids Holiday Party were a bit of a bust (by no fault of the General). I think we’re going to wait a couple of years until we try again.
