My parents own a business, so we get a lot of Christmas cards with family photos on the front. You know, everyone in matching pyjamas, even the dog (okay, the dog’s cute).
I hate them.
Several years ago, I noticed a distorted face on a card. I thought nothing of it, figuring the person moved or something.
A few months later, that person died. It happens every year.
I don’t want to look at the cards, but it’s a Christmas Eve tradition to admire them together.
This year, Mom put our Christmas picture on the refrigerator.
My face is distorted.
