Sometimes an Elf Shaming doesn’t require much effort.
Atticus the Elf on the Shelf thought he was being clever, slipping into the kitchen when Mama Frugalista was monitoring her son wash his hands again in the middle of their cookie-making project.
When they came back, she noticed the beaters looked a bit cleaner than she expected, but didn’t think much of it.
That is, she didn’t until she heard the moans and Courtesy Flushes from the hall bathroom later that day.
Looks like one little Elf may have learned his lesson the hard way.
Four days of stomach cramps, fever and raging diarrhea from a case of salmonella poisoning will do that to a fella.
I suspect this Elf on the Shelf will stay on higher ground from now on.
