Last night at the annual Placencia Christmas Eve gathering I was sitting on the couch with my cousins Glen and Rich. One of my little cousins, around 2 years old, entered dressed in her holiday best.
Another cousin began to gush, saying “Oh, you always look so beautiful at Christmastime!” to which Glen promptly quipped, “Nice. So what are you saying about the rest of the year?”
“Well,” I added, “Everyone knows in June she looks like hell.”
Merry Christmas to everyone who only looks good during this festive time.
