Twas the night before Christmas, and I couldn't sleep, so I left my bed; without so much as a peep. And headed to the kitchen for something to eat, buck naked, except for the slippers on my feet. I didn't dare turn on the light and wake my wife, for the last time I did that, she threatened my life. The house was dead quiet; I didn't hear a sound as I went downstairs, mostly feeling my way around. I got to the living room, stumbling a few times; when I heard music that sounded like distant chimes. So, I went to the window and pulled back the drapes, believing the neighbors were playing Christmas tapes. I forgot I was as naked as a jaybird till I heard the loudest screams I had ever heard. The church quire was midnight caroling on my lawn, and in plain view, I stood bare-assed, not a stitch on. I don't think they'll ever forget that Christmas Eve, judging by the faces, I saw scrambling to leave. Now, it wasn't my intent to flash anyone, all I wanted was a ham and cheese on a bun.

Oh my, this is hilarious, Emile. I so much want to believe it actually happened, but I'm sure it was fiction. So funny!
