A Previously Unreported Holiday Story
We live in an idyllic little town, where things like this happen.
"Someone has installed candle sacks in our yard," I said to Gloria on the phone.
"Oh, I forgot to tell you about that," she said. "Also, the rest of the world calls them 'luminarias'," she said.
"Semantics," I said, inaccurately. "What do you know about this yard invasion?"
"There was a neighborhood committee asking for volunteers to put them up for the night," she said.
"What next?" I asked. "Underground missile silos? Will we have to feed the technicians? Who has the codes?"
"They come by and take them down tomorrow," she said.
"Okay, never mind," I said.
