♫ All I want for Christmas is a Dessner twin ♫
Two very festive yet still slightly sad lil pups celebrating Christmas on The Colbert Report. [x]
I was six years old in the back of my mom’s 1980 red-and-black Buick station wagon with Bryce on the way to the Baseball Card Corner to pick out cards for our birthday. We chose three cards for about $50— a 1963 Mickey Mantle, 1961 Whitey Ford, and a 1959 Duke Snider.
We really wanted a 1961 Roger Maris that had just come in— and the guy in the store says it’s the year he broke Babe Ruth’s single-season record with 61 homers and that is why it costs $28, but mom said that was more than we were allowed. We didn’t press her because she had that scary tone of voice and had just worked all day at the veterans hospital in the psych unit. On the way home she put in a Chuck Mangione tape that we hated. So we asked her to put on the horse song again.
