‘Hi Richard, it’s me…
Sorry Richard, you’ll have to shout, the line’s really bad…
Christmas? Yes, that’s why I’m ringing...
Richard, please just stop babbling about trees and lights...
Yes, silver and blue sounds nice but listen....
Yes, buy a new angel if you want....
 Blue? Well if you can find one, I really don’t care...
What? No, I’m in India....
Tinsel? It’s in the box in the attic...
Yes I did say India…
No Richard, I have no idea what your mother wants for Christmas, in fact…
Turkey? Stuff the turkey. Richard, I’ve left you.’


About the Author
Jo Fino says:
I am a dreamer, an optimist, a worrier too. I started writing again to deal with a stressful situation and gradually rediscovered my passion. Now I battle to try to produce something of worth and to have the guts to get it 'out there'. I have a new passion: my daughter. I want to leave her a legacy, make her proud. I am working on short stories and a couple of novel ideas, dabble with poetry and have just started blogging …again.  http://twcrumpet.blogspot.co.uk


Since CafeLit published Jo’s first short story here, her story A Tale of A Smuggler and His Girl was shortlisted by Honno in their call for ghost stories and her short story Cruel Summer won the Writer's Forum monthly competition and was published in issue 146.
