Sawyer is too busy to worry about something as frivolous as Christmas. College is hard, but he’s focused on getting into law school. Kable is studying to make the family business, Del Buon Gusto, into a successful chain restaurant. When a party debacle at the restaurant gives Kable a chance to get close to Sawyer, he’s shocked to learn Sawyer’s a Christmas Grinch. He’s determined to change Sawyer’s mind, but their dates are one debacle after another. It might not be possible to make this into Sawyer’s first Merry Christmas after all.
What a waste of time. He could’ve been home starting his paper or even watching a movie if he wanted to slack off.
Fed up avoiding questions of family traditions and travel plans, Sawyer strolled away from the crowd in the dining room and headed toward the tree. He nodded and smiled at a few people but didn’t stop. Everyone else was enjoying the appetizers that had just come out, but he’d already had dinner before he left home, since he’d expected to work. He could pass more time pretending to examine the ornaments or watching the snow drift down now that the storm finally hit. He’d just have to wait a little longer until he could politely make his escape.

I’m going to take a break from books and writing to give a shout-out to all the dads out there. Happy Father’s Day! I hope you have all enjoyed your day!
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to spend my day with my dad. We live in different states, but at least I got to meet-up with him and my mom yesterday for lunch. I guess, technically, we celebrated a day early!
I hope that most of us can relate tales of how our fathers have helped us or the things they’ve done for us. I’m happy to say that I can.
I’m very lucky in that my father and I get along well and share a lot of the same traits. Growing up, he held a stressful job and worked all kinds of crazy hours. Once he retired, we had a chance to grow much closer. He’s the purveyor of wisdom and advice on all things car- and home-related. He’s the teacher, and the one to tell it as it is—no sugar coating for dad!
While I could drone on and on, I’ll end with a verse from “Only Dad,” a poem by Edgar Albert Guest. You can find the entire piece here.
Only a dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small,
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The deeds that his father did for him.
This is the line that for him I pen,
Only a dad, but the best of men.
Thank you, dad, for all you’ve done. I look forward to many more years with you!
