T'was the Night...
Tuesday, December 23, 2008
before the night before Christmas, and all through my parents' house, where my currently unemployed butt is currently living, were piles of cookies that I myself had baked along with the piles my mom has since made. Not a mouse was stirring because my older, gainfully employed sister has just returned home to bask in her raise...along with her two cats who are B.K. and Winky..."grandkitties" to some, "ornament-breakers" and "flower eaters" to others. The stockings are hung by the chimney with care, no kidding, even adult children are suckers for tradition--and Mom knows it! In hopes that Saint Nicholas won't forget to leave me a job-tip or an advance from a 401(K), or something this year!
