Caption This 27
Please suggest a creative name/caption for this photo [See below for details]
London, ON, December 2006 [Click to enlarge]
Being among the minority that does not celebrate Christmas, we've never experienced the joy of waiting in line to sit on Santa's knee. So the pictures we get of this annual tradition won't be the overpriced, rent-an-elf-taken, unfocused Polaroid variety. I'll be stealing them with my own camera when no one's looking, thank you very much.
As I walked the upper floor of nearby Masonville Place (wiki) with our kids last December, I peeked over the railing and saw a very fatigued Mall Santa below. I don't know what he's being paid, but I'm sure it isn't anywhere near enough. Bless him.
I share this image now because it's July, and we'll be elbow-deep in holiday-season madness before long. I just didn't want anyone to forget how much fun it is, even for the jolly man himself.
Your turn: Please come up with a snazzy, snappy, funny caption for this image. Call your friends and have them jump into the fray, too. All denominations welcome. I'll announce the winner next week.
And the winner of last week's Caption This is....JC for this gem: "She is always picking my brains"
I took the picture so quickly that I didn't notice the funny-looking thing behind the munchkin's ear. As I reviewed it later on, I kept asking myself what mom was stuffing into his ear. This quote nailed the bizarro thoughts that hit me as I stared at this image, high up in a lonely hotel room. Please take a moment to visit JC and share a congratulatory message or two.
