Question: I hung a Smurf ornament on my Christmas tree in your honor on Saturday! Isn't that worth some O.C. prattle?

Answer: Sure is! Remember the tease I dropped in my 100th column about Sandy and Julie being husband and wife? Well, that's one of three marital bombshells that'll be dropped in next week's Chrismukkah episode. But naturally, there's a twist. (Hint: It involves Taylor, Ryan, a ladder and a hospital.)
