Christmas in New York City
That’s good, that you’re over it and that today is so much better! I guess types like that just seem worse around the holidays.
Aside from a few moments where I think Brandon was having flashbacks of Thanksgivings past and might have been considering driving into a tree or off a bridge to avoid spending time with my dad, yep, we made it down fine. Traffic was traffic but that was expected. Having fun with the Church clan?
You’re right - it just seemed so thoughtless of people, but oh well. What’s done is done.
Ha, I’m surprised you let him drive, to be honest! I could imagine him turning you around and driving to Canada rather than battling your father. Is everything good with your family? No new nieces and nephews to meet this year? Hanging out with Gabe’s mom is great. She’s had Gabe in the kitchen whilst grilling me about my life. And of course, Isa is being totally spoilt. It’s pretty much perfect.
Is everything okay at work? I mean, it’s obviously not, but you know what I mean.
You know what, last night I was so done with smiling at people who requested song after song and then didn’t tip, but today, I am over it. It’s thanksgiving and everything is great.
Did you get down to your parents okay?
Having four days off is awesome. Is there a specific reason you don’t want to go to work?
I booked the weekend off work when Gabe said his mother would be here this weekend, but I am so glad I did. There are just so many tourists in the city and none of them tip. I am done.
Anyway. How’re you?
is knowing I have the next four days off work. I am so done with that place, I swear.
Oh, I try. Isa knows I love her cupcakes more than life itself, so she has nothing to worry about.
Yeah, super busy with having to cover after school for a few hours despite how much I don’t want to do that.
Well that’s good to hear. She’s so excited about seeing everyone, it’s adorable.
Do you want us to hold dinner til you arrive, or are you happy to just reheat stuff? I’ll make sure there’s a beer in the fridge with your name on it!
Is it strange to say I trust Isa’s cooking more than I trust yours?
Will I be locked out if I come late?
You’re charming as ever, B. You better be nice about the cupcakes that Isa made - she’ll be devastated if Uncle Brandon doesn’t eat all of his pink, sparkly cupcake.
No, just come by whenever you’re free. I know you’re super busy with stuff.
