|I'm pretty sure twisty, tangly, delicate, finicky, stretchy, may light/may not, frustrating strings of icicle lights are proof there is no intelligent design going on.|
At least not in the seasonal lighting design labs at GE.
More disturbing is the intelligence level of folks like me that wrestle these things out of boxes each year, untangle them, plug them in to check them for dead lights, then attempt to hang them as they grab each and every snaggable protrusion of house and hedge, only to find that once they are successfully hung ... a 3-foot section is now dark.
In the end, I did prevail, although there was some "expletive deleted" * , non Christmassy language heard from time to time.
When Mrs. FC drove up late that night after a long weekend of catering work, she was thrilled to see the lights up, which made me feel pretty intelligent for putting up with the demon lights.,
So the intelligent design question remains just that...
...a riddle wrapped and hopelessly tangled in an enigma.
*readers too young to remember the Nixon years may not get that.
