The Annual Christmas Invite

I really wonder why I get it every year now. I think one, maybe two years I was skipped over but my sister sends an e-vite to my inbox each year now for the annual Christmas “party.”

Oh it’s a party and it takes place on Christmas day, but it’s an open house and others (besides family) are welcome too.

I don’t have a problem with that really. The more the merrier I suppose. But of course there are conditions that go with that as well.

So after my stomach did a little flip, I opened the email but not the actual invitation.  I’m sure it will say the same as it does every year. The time, the place, the usual info that invites include.  I just know that I’m not going.

I’d rather spend Christmas alone than with phantom elephants. If I’m gonna be surrounded by elephants, I’d rather they be real actual elephants…although I’m a bit partial to giraffes.
