Scene: Tucking Graham, age 8, into bed.
Graham: So why doesn’t Santa put anything in you and Daddy’s stockings?
Cheris: I don’t know… I guess because we’re grown-ups.
Graham: Does Santa put anything in drunk people’s stockings?
Cheris: Ummm… drunk kids?
Graham: No! Drunk grown-ups!
Cheris: Well… I don’t think so… they’re still grown-ups.
Graham: But, you told me that people get drunk so they can feel like kids.
Cheris: Oh! Right… Um… I don’t think Santa works that way.
Cheris: Should I get drunk next Christmas and find out?
