Show Description
2nd Hour: Calling home for Christmas - You haven't written home in eight months and what's worse, you haven't even thought about it. Going to the dentist. Early version of the Red Ryder BB gun story which ultimately made it's way into "A Christmas Story". Several differences are "You'll shoot someone's eye out" vs. "You'll shoot your eye out" and Randy gets blamed for the stepping on the already broken glasses and breaking them vs. an icicle breaks them.
