  • If you feel the need to include your family’s last name when you sign the card, these people probably shouldn’t be on your list at all.

  1. “If you feel the need to include your last name when you sign the card, these people probably shouldn’t be on your list at all.”

    You might not be the only “Bill” they know.

  2. Tom, I worded that badly (and now it’s been changed): I meant to say “your family’s last name, meaning the recipient should be able to identify the sequence of four first names without the additional clue. Observations made at 2am in the midst of addressing cards are not, unfortunately, always as clear as they might be.

  3. I get you, and I should have included a wink in my first comment. Still, I do get cards from coworkers or colleagues whose families I’ve never met. I might recognize a spouse’s name, but not necessarily.

    I may be the wrong person to comment on this topic: When a high-school girlfriend and I were separated over a summer, we wrote to each other regularly, and she made fun of me because I signed my first letter with both my first and my last name. I didn’t even think about it when I did so; that was just how I signed my name.

  4. “Three thousand feet up, up the side of mount Crumpet, he rode with his load to the tip top – to dump it.”

    Seems to me the same plan would work with Hanukkah candles. Didn’t Piraro ever see the cartoon?

  5. I’m betting he hasn’t seen the cartoon, or at least doesn’t remember much from it. If he had, he’d have known that the Grinch’s purpose in life is to make misery for others. He didn’t care about the toys, he just wanted the kids to cry.

    On a similar note, a few months ago a friend found “The Grinch meets the Cat in the Hat”. I watched that and it was very nice, despite being nearly unheard of.
