Elf is a 2003 film about a man (Will Ferrell) raised by Santa’s elves at the North Pole is sent to the America in search of his true identity. Today I want to challenge you to begin a new Christmas tradition based on this crazy elf’s life. I know we have time-honored traditions, but there’s room for one more (especially if it’s something off the wall and fun!) Today is ANSWER THE PHONE LIKE BUDDY THE ELF DAY!!! So – this is the day you can mess with the mind of a telemarketer or make your husband laugh (as he rolls his eyes in disbelief). It may make your mother-in-law wonder if you are cracking under the stress of the Christmas season – but who cares? Today we all need to answer the phone like this:
Buddy the Elf. What’s your favorite color?
Fair warning – you may get this greeting if you phone in an order for pizza today. Be prepared to say something witty instead of the standard, what, or huh???
I asked my group on facebook, A Second Helping of Wellness… with a Dash of Humor & a Pinch of Faith, to give me a witty response to “Buddy the Elf, What’s Your Favorite Color???” Here’s what they had to say:
Ally: RED & WHITE WITH SANTA ALL OVER! :-p
John: RED & GREEN, OF COURSE! 😀
Valerie: WHITE AS SNOW BECAUSE YOU CAN COLOR IT EVERY COLOR THAT EXISTS! 🙂
And what am I prepared to say? Well – I’m going to say CHRISTMAS PLUM PUDDING COLOR! 😉
There are two possible scenarios really – the caller could just be taken aback and there will be awkward silence or you will hear a “huh” or “uh” sound. Possibly the caller will actually tell you what their favorite color is, so you will have to be prepared with a witty and funny response, or possibly a statement such as “that is not a color, but a shade”, which will start a debate with the caller. A debate could be something fun and different today! 🙂

I know why we will snuggle after eating a whole roll of Tollhouse cookie dough – our blood sugar will be so high, we’ll be close to diabetic coma! That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! Wink! 😉
