It’s Christmas Eve, and a very hectic day for those who celebrate Christmas. Still, David and I have a good reason to be at the bar today, at least for a few minutes. We’ll be kind to you and keep our conversation short. It is Saturday, and Linda G. Hill has given us the gift of her Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. So, before we begin, let’s take a moment to thank Linda for fifty-two Saturday prompts, fifty-two landing zones for One-liner Wednesday and thirty-one days of Just-Jot-January. Note to Santa: Linda has been a very good girl. OK, the prompt:
“Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ‘cozy.’ Use it any way you like. Have fun! (And Merry Christmas if I don’t come back before then!)”
Since we were not planning on having a beer today, we’d both be surprised.
“Hi David. I didn’t expect to see you here today. I thought you’d be snuggled up all cozy at home.”
“My wife’s family is here, Dan. Nothing cozy about that crew. I’m here to pick up the food we ordered for tomorrow’s meal.”
“Me too. Do you have time for a bowl of smoking bishop?”
“As long as it’s made with John Howell’s Bourbon and three cherries.”
“Cheryl. Merry Christmas. We’re here to pick up our to-go orders, but I’m going to treat my friend to a bit of holiday cheer.”
“Will you be joining him, Dan?”
“Of course. I’d be a terrible host to let him drink alone.”
“Very considerate. Here we go. Bourbon, seltzer and ice. Three cherries and a cold draft of Modelo.”
And Merry Christmas from David, Dan, Cheryl and Skippy to all of you who visit with us during the year. I hope you enjoy the small gallery.
But first, for those of you who have read all or some of the Dreamer’s Alliance Series, I’d like to share the family’s favorite commercial and Christmas wishes from Zach, Abbie, Uncle Mike, Billy and Geno.
