TBM 1712.05 DDOP-Advent-02: Only If It’s Eartha Kitt

Album Cover: Earha Kitt Santa Baby

Description:

Flash-fiction: an aunt and niece discuss the holidays and Eartha Kitt.

Excerpt:

The older woman’s dithering lit a fire in her niece. “Aunt Lena you have been playing hermit at Christmas since I was sixteen years old. I’m twenty-six now, and Brian is probably going to propose on Christmas Eve, and I want my only aunt to be there.” She took a beat. “Besides, who else will I be able to mock all the cheesy Christmas music with?”
