A Christmas Story in 100 Words

The cat has a new red collar.

One with a bell. It jingles when she scratches.

So that is festive.

Christmas Eve ramen. A Sriracha squeeze for some holiday zest.

The hot chocolate in my hand-made mug has marshmallows, too.

Frantic figures move just beyond slippered feet propped on the cluttered coffee table.

Home Alone for company, pretty much just as I remembered it.

I ponder what-ifs and why-nots.

Appreciate the warm weight of the sleepy tabby cat pressed against my leg.

Wishing it were different, accepting it isn’t.

A gift in and of itself.


Merry Christmas to me.





I ran across a journal that only publishes 100-word stories. How epic is that?! So I tried it.
