Want to avoid sitting on uncle Frank's lap this Christmas day?

Parking is too hard to find near my house and I have the perfect spot!
I hit a turkey while riding a bike and had to take it to vet
I had a heart attack early that morning, but I am “all better now."
The dog can’t take the stress of family reunions
I hurt my toe when a can fell out of the refrigerator
My psychic said today was not a good day to leave the house
I’ve been scheduled for a karma transplant
The man on television told me to say tuned
I’m trying to see how long I can go without saying yes
I’m being deported
I’m converting my calendar watch from solar to lunar
I am busy multiple exposing
None of my socks match
I changed the lock on my door and now I can’t get out
I never go out on days that end in “Y”
My favorite commercial is on TV
I have to study for a blood test
I have to update my Facebook Status
The voices in my head are saying I can’t go
I would tell you why I can’t come, but then I would have to kill you

In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months!

I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
