Growing up, the Spencers watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation every year, and quoted the movie to each other all year long. Greg found a Cousin Eddie hat on Amazon a couple of days before the Spencer White Elephant Party, and I ordered and paid for over night shipping. Greg had big plans to come to the party dressed as Cousin Eddie. It would have been epic!
By 5 p.m., the package tracking showed that it was in West Valley. It was guaranteed delivery by 8. Around 7:30, Greg slipped out of the party, taking Cece home, giving her a bath, and putting her in pajamas. By 8:15, he gave up and came back to the party.
The hat was delivered the next morning around 11. Ellie was the first one to try it on.
Amazon offered me a digital download of Kung Fu Panda as an apology for missing the delivery window. That was a nice gesture.
Greg will just have to be Cousin Eddie next year.
