BlogFestivus 2012: a seasonal short story writing challenge.
Blogdramedy’s writing challenge ends today. That is, the writing challenge ends for those writers better than I. You see, I am still days behind the this adventure. As I said yesterday, I appreciate your patience. I am determined to cross the finish line before we ring in 2013. Shoot, I hope to cross the finish line before the world ends on Dec. 21st. Wish me luck, okay? Please access the links to the other writers on board this joyous reindeer train. You’ll find the list of links at the end of this post.
Vixen greeted Donner at the door. “Where’s Blitzen?”
“Oh you know, Blitzen.” Donner said, “Regardless of the situation, he has to make his own appearance. He’s still in the car. He’ll be in shortly.”
“Pull up a chair.” Comet said to Donner. “The kid has been filling us in on why he thought it would be a good idea to fake his death.” Comet leans over and smacks the kid on the back of his head. The kid winces but says nothing.
Vixen smiles, “Ease up on the kid’s head, Comet. I think there is a lump starting to form.”
“What were you thinking, kid?” Donner asks. “You gotta know something. Dasher is not happy about this at all. And, he is not a buck you want on your bad side. Trust me. I’ve been there.”
“Yeah,” Comet began. “I told the kid the same thing, Don. I told him all about how we had to keep the two of you separated for months. Man, was that ever hell.”
“I don’t know how I’ve managed all these years with you guys.” Vixen chimed in. “Chicks get a bad rap when it comes to hormones and grudges, but honestly – sometimes you guys make a chick in the midst of PMS look like Cindy Loo Who.”
“Cindy Loo Who who?” Comet asked, looking confused.
“Forget it.” Vixen returned. “We need to get the kid in my bedroom. Dasher and the others should be here soon.”

Your kind words are greatly appreciate, Sarah. Thank you.
+10 to House Lenore for “Cindy Lou Who who?” 🙂
Thank you, thank you. I’ll be here all the week.
The thought of reindeer driving/riding in a car just cracks me up!
They’re all hooves.
Omg, males with “PMS Syndrome” – anything could happen.
Blessings ~ Maxi
Seriously, Maxi. I shudder to think what could happen.
Way to work in the Grinch. And….we’ll always wait for you to catch up. 🙂
I liked my little reference. Glad you liked it, too.
I was half way to Google before I remembered who Cindy Loo Who… was. Goo!
