Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! Thank you to everyone who has read any of my stories over the past year. I am looking forward to big things in the coming year.
By the way, this story takes place before COVID times. 🙂
I’d spent a week preparing for the Christmas party. We even got an eggnog fountain.
Little Ellie-Mae wanted to put a sign at the end of the driveway, so people knew where to turn. “Eggnog for all!” it would say.
Twenty minutes later, she was back. She’d made the letters too big. “Can it just say EGGNOG?”
Ten minutes later, she returned. “How many G’s does ‘eggnog’ have?”
“Oh. I only put one in.”
When no one showed up, I walked down to the road to look for cars.
That’s how we learned about Ellie-Mae’s dyslexia.
