Nicole Leigh Shaw had a wonderful time building a gingerbread house town with her four young kids.
They ate gumdrops!
Almost no one got a Time Out for hitting!
To celebrate their masterpiece, Nicole took the family out for hot cocoa. Mmm….cocoa…They entrusted their confection concoction to be watched by their trusty elf, Blinky.
Uh-oh. Blinky looks a bit peckish.
Unfortunately, Blinky has no opposable thumbs with which to open the snack cabinet.
And he was hungry.
By the time Nicole and her brood made it back, the damage was done.
He didn’t just eat a gingerbread house, he ate an entire town.
Blinky’s sugar high was too intense to allow him to apologize. He just sat there atop masticated rooftops and the leftover crumbs of window panes with a glazed look in his eyes and a full belly.
Maybe tomorrow when he poops out all the holiday spirit, he’ll realize the terrible thing he’s done.
Then again? Maybe not.
