The Christmas Temptation: A Christmas Short Story

by Gail Farrelly

In her 64 years of life, my aunt, Gertrude Shannon, has never met a hot fudge sundae she liked or a stalk of celery she didn't. She’s a health nut who always brags about eating right.

It doesn’t matter if people want to hear the lecture or not. She insists on providing it. What a bore.
