Have Yourself a Merry *Little* Christmas
Posted December 25, 2008
Raven: Oh! *giggle* Blackie – did you play Santa at the shelter today?
Blackwell: Ho-ho-ho – what makes you think I’m NOT Santa, little girl? *chuckle* Yeah… I did a gig at the shelter – passed out presents to the kids there. You should’ve seen their faces –
Raven: I bet they were amazed – that’s a really fancy costume, and a BIG stomach you’ve got there! *sniff-snif* Boy, is it smoky-smelling –
Blackwell: Yeah, well, you never know where these rentals have been.
Raven: Now that you’re home, let’s open our presents. I’ve been watching them ALL day. *grin*
Blackwell: Here you go, sis – from me to you –
Raven: And here’s mine to you… oh, what could be in a red box!
Blackwell: You know what they say – “Red means danger.” Heh, just kidding, sis.
Raven: Ohhhhhh… Blackie… it’s – it’s beautiful. Where did you find such a nice necklace? Blue pearls…
Blackwell: I got my sources. When I saw that, I knew it’d be right for you – go ahead, put it on.
Raven: It’s wonderful, Blackie – it fits perfectly. So… what do you think of your present?
Blackwell: Wow, sis… thanks…
Blackwell: It’s just like my old favorite pocket knife, the one I lost –
Raven: I know! I was so excited when I found it. It was so funny how I just saw it in a store I happened to go in – I wasn’t really looking. It seemed to find me.
Blackwell: Yeah… it’s funny that way, sometimes…
Raven: Thank you, Blackie, for such a nice Christmas… I always like looking at the glow of the tree lights, don’t you?
Blackwell: Yeah… it makes me think of other Christmases –
Raven: I know… I -- I wish – I wish mama could be here, too…
Blackwell: So do I sis… so do I…
Better slightly late than never, it’s –
