From The Comments - By Rick

“Ya in tomarra?” the old man at the counter asked.

“No Bennie, day off!” she sang as she poured his coffee.

Tomorrow was Christmas, her first non-working one in four years. She planned a big sleep-in followed by a walk through Westin Park to admire the ice sculptures.

As she prepared Bennie’s breakfast, her manager walked over. “Listen, Julie can’t work in the morning, I need you to come in.”

He walked away as she slid Bennie his poached egg.

“Ya in tomarra?” the old man repeated.

Hiding her tears she smiled, “Yep, it wouldn’t be Christmas without you Bennie.”
