It was too much paper-writing that took away the Christmas spirit necessary to deal with the always overwhelming Family Festivities of Noise and Glee and Loud Music and Occasional Cursing held annually at Casa de Boy.
It is always done in the very best of spirits, but is always a little disconcerting to those who were not raised in said casa with said Christmas noise and glee and music and cursing. And when you're still shy of the 15-page mark, it's disconcerting-er. Or something.
