How to Take Down a Christmas Tree (Video)

There are about four days a year in which I don’t enjoy being single.  These days include:

1. The day the air conditioner needs to get put in the window

2. The day the air conditioner needs to get taken out of the window

3. The day the Christmas tree needs to be brought up three flights of stairs

4. The day the Christmas tree needs to be brought DOWN three flights of stairs.

After dragging my tree across the apartment and attempting to get it out the door, only to see an inch of pine needles covering my floors and the hallway outside my door, I decided, that is NOT happening.  A vacuum down three flights of winding stairs is the biggest nightmare I can imagine.  I thought about throwing it out the front window, but I was kindly reminded by a neighbor that if I did so, I’d take out the power lines with it.

I drove all over creation (ok, to Target and CVS) searching for “tree bags” …. I KNOW they exist because I saw a tree on the curb in one… but no one seemed to know what I was talking about, so I settled for 30 gallon garbage bags.  When I got home I realized 30 gallons really isn’t enough gallons to hold a 6-foot tree.  I wasn’t sure exactly how I was going to do this, but I knew it had to get done.  So I set up my camera on the table and figured it the hell out.  By myself.  Tonight is the kind of night I re-consider match.com.

    hahaha. I’m suprised you didn’t throw it out the window after all!
    I mean the tree, not the air conditioner!
