Genius sent a picture of his Christmas tree.
Don't tell anyone, but it's not real! It's the tree he got for the first Christmas of his adult life, working in Kansas City for that GPS gadget company, programming navigation information for boats. I mean ships. Like giant YACHTS. Not that there are tiny yachts, of course.
Anyhoo... Genius packed up his Christmas tree when he moved to Pittsburgh. I'm pretty sure he put it in a box, and didn't strap it to the roof of his Honda CRV. You can see some of the ornaments are Star Wars themed. They belong to his roommate, who is a fan. Genius himself is not.
In the background, you can see Genius's balcony. Where he MAY use his smokeless grill that he's getting for Christmas. Shh... it's a secret!
Here was our communication by text:
"Such a tasteful tree!"
"It's too small! I wanted to buy a bigger one but got shut down."
"Ours is still up from when you were here last year! But with fewer working lights."
"Do not EMOJudge me!"
"I'll judge as I please!"
Same old Genius. I really miss him.
