They do things like this...
Garrett's friend Brett* (of Bloody Mary fame) didn't have an elf so he did what any sensible first grader would do. He made one. Out of what, I have no earthly idea. Apparently, this elf possesses magical powers and moves around at night--just like Garrett's elf.
This prompted a hysterically funny conversation a couple of days ago in which Garrett declared, "Brett made his elf. I mean, he just made it. And it moves at night. I'm pretty sure it's just Brett's mom and dad moving it around while he's sleeping."
Hmmm. You don't say?
Meanwhile, he still believes, wholeheartedly, that his own elf moves all by himself.
You know, despite the fact that his hands are sown together and he has a rather large tag protruding from the back of his red felt unitard.
*Still not his actual name.
