Fiction: Holidays (159 words)

05 Jul

It was October.  Which meant it was time for the usual argument.

Holidays.

“We did Christmas with your family last year. It’s time to do Christmas with my family,” Phillip sighed.

“Yeah, but we also did Easter, father’s day, both our birthdays and thanksgiving with your family last year.  Christmas was all I had last year.” Reinette countered, “If you are going to insist on Thanksgiving with your family again, then I am going to insist on Christmas with mine.  It’s only fair.”

Phillip drummed his fingers against his chin in thought.  Which did he want more? Christmas or Thanksgiving?

“So, whoever gets Thanksgiving, the other gets Christmas?” Phillip confirmed.

Reinette watched for a second, trying to see if there was some kind of trick in the question, but then conceded. “Yes, whoever gets Thanksgiving, the other gets Christmas. And I honestly don’t care which one I get.”

“Alright,” Phillip nodded, “I’ll think about and get back to you.”
