Melissa finally went to sleep. Stanley remembered when she couldn’t sleep because she was excited. Now she was just angry. Too few presents under the tree. She already knew she didn’t get what she wanted, why should she even wake up in the morning? What was the point of all these silly traditions, they’re for kids. She’s too old for Christmas, why can’t she just go out with her boyfriend?Stanley settled down to eat the milk and cookies. Even if she was too old for it, he wasn’t. Never too old for Terri’s famous Chocolate Chip Macadamian Nut Cookies.
