Once upon a time....

in a penthouse far above the Hudson....
there lived a lady,,,,and a boy,,,,and a small, white dog....
Theirs was a COZY and MAJESTIC existence...
They would eat their dinner together every night...
They would light the Shabbos and Chanukah candles together...
They would play Scrabble..
and watch JEOPARDY....
They laughed SO MUCH....
They talked about EVERYTHING....
The boy played his BELOVED GUITAR.....
The Mother wrote and painted and cooked and worked...
She drove the boy back and forth to school every day....
Everything was JUST SUBLIME....

Until one day...
A VERY FAT...VERY MEAN man knocked upon the penthouse door....
He wore an oily KIPPAH and he smelled of LITHIUM and GEFILTE FISH....
He had a GROWLING temperament....
a sack of Chanukah DOUGHNUTS in one hand...
and a VERY LOUD and INTRUSIVE CELL PHONE in the other....
He said that he ONLY wanted to come in for a moment.....
He smiled in a "Grinch-like", sneering way....
Scaring the mother and the boy (and the white dog!)...
half to death....

There was a woman with him...
Nobody had noticed her, for she was standing FAR BEHIND the FAT MAN....
innocuously enough really....
She appeared to be HOLDING some sort of
of IPAD or TABLET or something of the sort,,,,
and she seemed THOROUGHLY ENGAGED with it...

AHHH!
She was on FACEBOOK...
of course....
A strong wind came...
and knocked the OILY GRINCH flat on his doughy face....
and the Lady in the penthouse closed the door SHUT and went back inside
to enjoy her family...


The End
