Prompted: Season’s Greetings and Silver Linings

Happy Holidays


“You’ll like it,” they said.

“It’ll be fun!” they said.

“Oh for heaven’s sake, do it already!” they said.

She wondered if they still felt that way. She bet they didn’t.

This was the absolute last time she listened to her friends. She had thought the three weird candles she’d blown out on her birthday cake; ones that were supposed to grant a wish each, was a joke.

Now they all had to suffer.

With the weather being so unseasonably warm, she was finding it harder than normal to get into the holiday spirit. It felt wrong to be wearing shorts and sweating during the time of year normally reserved for shivering and swearing under your breath about being cold.

Not everyone was upset though. The two very skimpily clad, well toned male models wearing Santa hats weren’t  complaining.

And the zombie, festively decorated in Christmas lights and perched in her pear tree didn’t appear to be unduly put out.

Maybe there was a silver lining to everything after all.


Happy Holidays from a pair of weirdos.

    1. Thank you Zee!!
      Sorry to be so late in reslonding. It seems like it’s a free fall starting at Christmas and going through Duck’s birthday, ever year.

      We, both Duck and I, wish the very same for you and yours 🙂

I love getting comments. It's as close to being famous as I'll ever get.
