(CNN) 2016 is still not done. Before we lost George Michael, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds this week, we lost someone who’s probably had just as big an impact on our lives, though you’ve never heard of him:
Robert Leo Hulseman.
He’s the man who invented the red Solo cup, staple at every party ever. He died last week at age 84.
And now this… 😞

Back in 1978 I peeked in my mom and dad’s closet and found a bag of Christmas toys. My six year old self was delighted to see the Millennium Falcon tucked away along with some other things I don’t remember.
I thought about it often on the days leading up to Christmas. The morning came and my brothers, sister, and I were unwrapping… and then… I was devastated when I turned and saw my brother Shaun unwrapping the Falcon. It was for him, not me.
He’s on the far left opening the actual present while I’m opening an 18-wheeler. That couldn’t fly. And didn’t have laser cannons. And didn’t have a cockpit for Han and Chewie.
And that kids… is how you ruin your Christmas.
