My sister and I were chatting online this morning when she reminded me of a story my mom told us. Apparently when I was very little, just before Christmas, we were either listening to or potentially singing "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," when at the end, I suddenly burst into tears, sobbing hysterically.
My mother asked, "What is wrong?"
Through chokes and a wet face I said, "I-I...I don't want Ruldolph to go down in his-tor-y."
I had no idea what history was, but in my little kid head, his-tor-y was something akin to Hell.
