Ghosts of Christmases Past

Once a girl swallowed a magic pebble on Christmas Eve. Her mom had to call the doctor to find out whether she should throw it up right now or let it take a leisurely trip down and out. Down and out was the winner. A few days later the mom was exceedingly happy to fish a glowing blue orb out of the commodious sea.

One year later a girl suddenly stood up and ran away from the traditional Christmas Eve chili dinner. Time was of the essence and the door leading to the commodious sea was closed. A chili volcano erupted. The dad did not take pleasure in the aftermath. The girl declined all offers of chili for at least a year. It's possible the dad did too.

Nothing unusual happened on Christmas Eve in the following years. The mom and the dad were relieved.

I want to know more about the magic pebble! May your Christmas Eve know no drama surrounding the commodious sea, once again!

Have you been spying on us? We almost always have erupting volcanoes on Christmas Eve or Day ;-)
