I think it might be better if you read it in poem style, instead of humming the tune of The Night Before Christmas. I kept getting lost! LOL!!

A Very Gary Christmas
T'was the night before Christmas when all through my house,
Not a creature was stirring...maybe one little louse
My candles were burning by the tree without care
In hopes that my hero soon would be there
The city was nestled, all snugged in their beds
While visions of lollipops danced in my head
And I in my nightie, with EE tape in hand
Had just settled down to watch 'The Ice Man...
When out in my den, off went the alarm
I sprang from my bed, "Hey whats going on!"
Away to the closet, put on my best robe
Threw on some makeup, gave my hair a quick comb
The fire in the tree, was beginning to flare
It burned all the presents, but I didn't care
Then what to my smoke filled eyes should appear
But a soot covered Gary, my hero, he's here!
He looked very handsome, soot smudges on his nose
I swooned when I saw him, as he came near, I froze
The fire extinquisher he held tight in his grip
Coughing and sputtering he yelled "Have you flipped!!?"
And then within minutes, my head began to spin
The room started twirling, smoke fumes closing in
As I held in my breath and was starting to gasp
I felt myself tightly held in his grasp
He was dress as usual, from his shirt to his shoes
Now his clothes were all covered with ashes and ....drool
Like a bundle of rags that was hung on a rack
He carried me to safety, flung on his back
His eyes were so sexy, a mudpuddle green
A nose oh so perfect, like his 'glutes' in his jeans
His expression was the sweetest, I'm sure he's been told
That face! That body! ~sigh~ A sight to behold!
He was humble and caring, although it was late
I giggled was-quite tickled... remember my state?
But a wink of his eye, and a hint of a smile
When he placed me down gently, I wanted his child
He asked how I was then he briefly departed
He put out the fire, (don't I wish) I had cunningly started
He whipped out the paper, still checking things out
From the floor, I sputtered, (cough!) "I..need..mouth to mouth!"
The headline had changed, another in it's place
"Woman arrested" it said, oh what a disgrace!
He rushed to the door, his task here was through
Exhausted and tired... I'm sure he was too
The house was in shambles as the cops scurried in
I was handcuffed, still swooning, as I passed him I grinned
But he heard me exclaim as he dashed out of site
Merry Christmas Gary Hobson!
"I love you..goodnight!"
