Summit Up

Special to the Daily

Summit County, CO ColoradoGood morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column worried we’re going to get dumped for the holidays.Can you imagine? Little old us, being so annoying as to completely turn off our sweetie! I know, impossible you say …Well, in that light, we share some surefire ways to get the holiday heave-ho from your Honey. These come from apparent “experts” on the topic, so listen up!^ Keep your mouth shut: keep bad feelings bottled up then explode at an awkward time # Be a professional victim: blame everyone else for what you don’t like

* Assume the worst: take everything personally and never ask for clarification@ See the glass as half-empty: complain a lot about how no one can do anything rightAny of these sound familiar? If they do, you’re on your way to a Blue Christmas. But fear not, you still have eight shopping days to mend your ways!***What would a holiday version of Summit UP be without an Angel Alert!! Angel Alert!!?Today’s is aimed at Anna Aunan, an assistant manager at the Nike store here in town. Seems she returned a missing wallet to a careless shopper, who wrote this note of thanks in return:

“Dear Anna, Thank you very much for sending me my wallet. I have just received it, with all documents credit cards and cash. I was really surprised with your personal attention, positive and good will attitude. I wish I could retribute this, so, if you ever come to Brazil, please email me. Best regards, Alfredo Pereira Neto.”How good does Rio sound right about now?***And finally, in the spirit of laughing in the face of adversity, we’d like to share some actual T-shirt slogans that one of our Field Representatives found along Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Seems Katrina is still top-of-mind down there …”FEMA – Fix Everything My A**””FEMA – The Other F-Word”

“I stayed in New Orleans for Katrina, and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt, a new Cadillac, and a plasma TV””Proud to Call It Home” (below a picture of a trailer)And finally …”Drove My Chevy to the Levee But the Levee Was Gone”***We out, wishing this Christmas could be spent at Tipitina’s.
