The Case for More Holiday Cheer

A couple of girls just stopped by my doorstep as carolers, and they asked me if they could sing for me. One of them was playing guitar, and both were singing harmony. Their voices were very pretty, and they were just the two nicest, sweetest kids ever.

Usually I have a thing against people -especially kids - who just show up on my doorstep, especially if they want money from me. But these two were an exception; they were polite, they were gracious, and for a moment there they made me forget what a cranky old lady I've turned into lately.

Sigh. Why would anyone want to grow up so quickly at their age?
