Just excellent characterization, and the dialog is top notch. The banter was just fabulous and fun.
A fitting commentary on the consumerism of Christmas and the current economic crisis. My favourite one-liner (there were so many!) was about buying a dog to keep the mailman away.
Unless this is an americanism, didn't you mean plaintive rather than plaintiff?
I liked how the family worked it out, practically and humorously--very nice story.
This story was so timely. SO much to think about since our world seems to be changing suddenly.. what really IS important? Great resolution at the end... loved the dialogue.
Your writing is so fresh and creative - so many pleasing phrases that show the mark of a true Master.
