#1,106 Christmas Eve Eve Sunday.
by Erin Napier
For Christmas, we gave the dogs 2 bales of nativity hay from the church. They were overwhelmed with gratitude.
Then after a completely insane Christmas Eve Eve grocery store run, we went to mama’s to get busy making food for the party tomorrow night. We made enough chicken salad to feed a hundred people, pecan pies and cookies. She already has the rest under control and the Razzles are bringing lots of other food.
As it got late, everyone went out to Joey’s parents’ house in Sharon for a bonfire so we loaded up in our new truck and listened to Otis Redding’s Christmas. It felt like we were on a date in 1962.
Sharon is close to Sandersville. Which puts it close to the Bok Homa Casino, home of Douwe Egberts, the world’s greatest coffee that’s available only for institutional sale. The men wanted a hot cup of Douwe and nothing else would do, so to the casino we went. There was no gambling, but there is a restaurant that has, not only Douwe Egberts on tap for FREE, but Doritos chili pie and gator sausage. Hello, fourth meal.
We all slept peacefully with hair smelling of cigarettes.
