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