    Lee went up to the locker rooms and put an envelope in Deric's box. Inside is the gift and a note:

    "Kinda knew you were a history major, but saw you got a thing for sports too. Instead of the original newspaper article from London of the titanic sinking, I got you a gen-u-ine gift certificate to the NFL Shop.

    Your S. Santa, Lee..

    P.S. Man, if you still want the newspaper clipping, I can bring it by Monday, not in great condition tho."

    I didn't expect to get anything, but this was awesome. Thank you @Sophie for the beard oil and @Jade for the bacon and tie. Merry Jolly TECSXMAS to you all.

    As with annual tradition, Doctor Sophie Conrad had left San Francisco to return to Maine and be with her family for the holiday season. Her gifts had been despatched via courier service and would arrive at the mailing addresses of their respective recipients on the morning of Christmas day. When she returned to the ACME Medical Center on the Sunday following, there was a collection of brightly marked items artfully crammed into her pigeonhole and amongst it was the Earthbody voucher from one Deric Storm.


    A month later, a square-shaped Polaroid snapshot would be slotted into his locker. On its front were the laughing faces of the doctor and Commander Ivy Monaghan, the storefront of Earthbody apparent behind their shoulders; on its back, in blue-coloured Sharpie ink, Sophie had penned succinct words in neat cursive: Thank you.

    Why does it always seem like the CLOSER you live to someone...the LESS OFTEN it is that you see them?...and the CLOSER you live to them..the LATER you end up staying at their house? !! Once again, I am up much too late!! LOL!!

    Thank you very much@Nace Bilby for the very cool book. I'm sure I will love it. I've really enjoyed working with you in the ACME Retro role play too. I was watching an episode of a show called "Flashpoint" about a fictional SWAT team unit, that I always thought was supposed to be based in Seattle (but I think it was filmed in Toronto). They were trying to disarm a bomb with a mercury tilt switch ans I started to laugh a little, cuz now I know what that is!! Haha. I think they used acetone (nail polish remover) and dry ice to freeze the switch, before cutting the wires on the bomb. Oh, and for the record, my mother was both a park ranger and a police officer, as are many people we know. Thanks again. :)

    The stockings contain chocolate, a free pass to the local cinema, and a fake bug of sorts that has a tag good for one prank against whomever they choose. There is also a card in each one of the stockings for a free ice cream as well. Upon seeing the unicorn plush invader dragged it to her secret room for safe keeping. She decided to make some cardboard armor for it just for fun. However they were wondering if everyone liked the mini stockings before sneaking off to the library to read a few books. As long as they were happy she was happy.

    Chase took the scotch gladly and admired the wrapping job. Ennai wasn't always — as she said herself, 'sentimental' — so something like this caught him by surprise.

    Jokingly, he raised a brow, "Ennai... you're not suggesting I'm 40?"

    "Chase, I would never," was her response.

    He thanked her, vowing to keep this somewhere noticeable in the office. Having 40-year-old scotch to mark one's age was better than a full beard. Much easier to take care of, too.

    (The above was roughly taken from live chat — thanks for that too, Ennai.)
    (By the way, @Kidman, that was the king of reaction posts.)

    No problem! I thought you would enjoy that read.

    (That is a pure coincidence. I just happened across that image and thought it would be perfect.)
