Firm Consultant Re-enacts Her Version of ‘A Christmas Story’

December 27, 2012

Just in time for the holiday season, CPA firm consultant Rita Keller of Keller Advisors has decided to do her own version of a scene from the now-classic Jean Shepherd movie “A Christmas Story,” adapted for accountants.

No, it’s not any of the scenes involving a leg lamp. Actually, it’s the almost too painful to watch scene where a little boy takes the “triple-dog dare” of licking a flag pole on an icy winter day and promptly gets his tongue stuck to the pole.

In Rita’s version, an accountant takes the triple-dog dare of using social media to promote their firm, which should not be as dangerous a stunt. In her blog post, Rita also includes a photo of herself taking that triple-dog dare with the flag pole. Hopefully she didn’t need to use any hot water to extricate herself.

Using social media is generally considered safer than tonguing a frozen flag pole, though it’s still a good idea to be careful about those holiday party photos you post on your Facebook page.

Credit to Rita for re-enacting this. (Who doesn't love "A Christmas Story?")

Of course, Rita is a full-grown adult and wise consultant- her interntional endeavor is probably well planned.

My experience at age 8 at my Vermont elementary school left me (or, my tongue anyways) quite unintentionally stuck on chain-link fence. Ouch! (The price you pay for trying to lick at fresh-fallen snow.)

As for social media, for many it's a crawl-walk-run process-unlike a do-or-don't proposition of licking a frozen flag pole, you can ease your way in.
