Sloth on a Shelf – Day 8

After scaling the tree and the journey to find the child, Sergio decided he was due for the time-honored tradition of a coffee break. And being the elfish sloth that he is, he put his own spin on it.

I heard him muttering while he searched through the closet, then the sounds of a leather case being dragged across the floor. He had pulled out the projector. Thinking he meant to watch a cartoon, I went into the kitchen to make a cup of tea. After pouring the hot water into my cup, I took a peek. Sergio was projecting a snowy scene on the opposite wall. Interesting. While I finished preparing my tea, I heard his footsteps on the stairs followed by a soft thumb. Curious, I had to see what was going on.

He had brought his pillow downstairs along with a Christmas blanket — with Santa, of course — and had set them up in front of the wall the image was being projected on. There he sat, Elf-King of the pillow top, blanket over the pillow, drinking out of his sloffee cup. When I asked if he was enjoying his break he said he was.
Sergio: I thought I’d see how it felt to be a North Pole elf on break, sitting in the forest, enjoying the smells and sounds, but I had to put a pillow down so I didn’t freeze my tushy off.

And there you have a perfect example of Sergio logic. He works harder than anyone I know to have a work break.
