I wrote the story above in 1996 (linked on the right). I was in a writing class with an instructor who obviously was on the cutting edge of writing fashion.


He encouraged memoir-type prose, just as we were about to be culturally bombarded with tell-all books in a trend that continues today, albeit with a more discerning readership.

I cherish this story for reasons that are imbedded in my holiday psyche and terrible fate.
