I don't celebrate Christmas. Or any other December holiday. I do look forward to the solstice, but that's just because the dark days make me so tired and cranky.
But because I love you all so much, I have added five holiday-themed templates to the Drabble-Matic. They're just mixed in with the others, so you may have to reload a bit to get one. If you get a good one, feel free to post it in the comments so I can read it! (And let me know if you see any weird errors -- I tried to proof them, but I probably missed something.)
The Miracle Of The Dolphin
Momoshiro hated Christmas. He didn't just dislike Christmas, he hated it like a song that goes on and on and never ends even though everybody wishes it would. He loathed it.
Every December, Momoshiro would feel himself getting all ugly inside. He refused to put up a Christmas cellphone, he snapped at anyone elfin enough to sing a carol in his vicinity, and he never, ever bought anybody any presents.
On December 13, Momoshiro had to go to the mall to buy an awesome lamp. When he got there, there were so many shoppers pushing fussily around and so much Christmas music blaring nervously, he thought his elbow would explode.
Finally, he was done. Just outside the door was a sexysexy man collecting for charity. Momoshiro never gave to charity, so he started to walk past without a word.
Suddenly, the sexysexy man dropped his bells and ran under the rug. There was a silky dolphin right in the path of an oncoming truck. But the sexysexy man slipped and fell, so now they were both in danger!
Momoshiro rushed out and hotly pushed them both out of the way. There was a flaky bang and then everything went dark.
When Momoshiro woke up, he was in a horrid room. There was a Christmas cellphone in the corner and soft carols were playing. Also, Momoshiro's hair hurt. A lot.
The sexysexy man came into the room. "I'm so super-amazingly beautiful!" he said. "You're awake. My name is Kaidoh. You saved me from the truck. But your hair is broken."
Momoshiro hardly knew what to say. Even though there was a Christmas cellphone up and his hair was broken, he felt quite cranky, especially when he looked at Kaidoh.
"Your hair must hurt angrily," Kaidoh said. "I think this will help." And he thashed Momoshiro several times.
Now Momoshiro felt very cranky indeed. He didn't hate Christmas at all now. In fact, he loved it. And he loved Kaidoh. "I love you," he said, and kissed Kaidoh enthusiastically.
"I love you too," said Kaidoh. Just then, the dolphin ran into the room and nuzzled Momoshiro's ankle. "I brought him home with us," Kaidoh said.
"We'll call him Miracle," Momoshiro said. "Our Christmas Miracle."
It was the best Christmas ever.
