Thomas, we love you

Submitted by on Saturday, 27 December 2008 No Comment

Disclaimer: At approximately 11:36 p.m. Christmas Eve, it wasn’t “Thomas, we love you” I was singing. The lyrics were replaced with words that would have made the Really Useful Engine proclaim, “cinders and ashes!”

But that’s because we were in the throes of assembling Boots’ five-foot monstrosity of a play set. Someone — a-hem! Not me! — got into a cleaning frenzy and tossed the box too soon, which meant we had nothing other than confusing instructions and a tiny black-and-white drawing to go by.

Ay, but we … er, Santa … finished the task and all has been well since in our living-room Island of Sodor. Even Big Guy, who claims he hates Thomas in a statement designed to start an argument with Boots, has played along, though he occasionally likes to take Thomas out with a tank or the Batmobile.
