Christmas Story

I had been working on a story based on my day with Santa several weeks ago. I thought the story had potential; it had a good conflict (somewhat curmudgeonly firefighter decides to cancel Santa's appearance due to personnel shortages) and redemption (firefighter throws caution to the winds and is rewarded with happy townsfolk and good karma). Unfortunately, as I neared the end of writing, my uncle passed away. I haven't felt much like getting out of bed since then, let alone working on some stupid lighthearted story.
