A Christmas Letter by Martin Green
I see that the holiday season is upon us so its time for the Entwhistle familys annual Christmas letter.
I couldnt feel less like doing this but our family and friends expect it, so here I go.
Stanley is busy with the consulting business he started this year, but he could always use more clients so if you know of anyone out there who needs a good marketing man dont hesitate to let us know.
Stanley still hasnt found after those SOBs at his old company laid him off. Were hurting, people. Help.
I got tired of being home all the time so now have a job as a receptionist downtown. I like meeting new people and going to work with the other girls.
And without my salary, meager as it is, wed probably have gone under.
Our son Bertram graduated college and is living at home while he considers job prospects.
He better find something soon as hes driving us all crazy hanging around the house.
Melanie is a senior in high school and is on the cheerleading team. Shes very popular with the boys.
Shed better be careful. Thats all we need, a pregnant daughter. And I dont know what shell do after she graduates. We certainly cant afford to send her to college.
We didnt travel as much this year. I guess were among those people taking staycations, ha, ha. Stanley has done a lot of fixing up around the house.
Travel? Thats a laugh. Who could afford it? And we couldnt afford to hire anyone to do house repairs.
Well, heres to a happy holiday season and to a great new year for all.
It had better be a better new year or were definitely going under.
