Well... looks like we're all going to have to do a little cutting back this Christmas.  But you know, even if there's no power and not as much food, at least we've all still got a good, solid roof over our heads.  If you look at it that way, the town's been a lot kinder to us for Christmas than they were for Thanksgiving.  I'm sure this is nothing we can't weather if everybody pitches in and helps each other out.  Maybe we can set up a food bank or some sort of shelter.  It's times like these when a community really needs to come together, after all.

[Early evening; door to door]

[True to his earlier sentiment, Dad is going to pitch in and do his part to make sure his neighbors are at least able to have something to eat during these rough times.  He's always been a firm believer in preparedness, and thank goodness, because by now he's built up quite a stock of cream pies.  There's probably a few hundred of them safely captchalogued away in his trusty wallet modus, so he figures he can spare a few here and there to feed his hungry neighbors.  Dad will be going around knocking on every door in town on the first day of the event, hoping to share the wealth.]

Knock knock, neighbor!

I'll consider myself warned, then.

[ She gestures to the fireplace, where there's a kettle near the fire. ]

Can I get you some tea before you go, to warm up?

I think I can spare a few minutes for a cup of tea.

[ She pours for both of them, and wraps her hand around her mug. ]

While I'd rather families could stay together here, Mayfield has other ideas. Is there anything I should know about John, like allergies and such?

That's all right, I'm sure John's doing just fine. And it's not like he can't come over and visit anytime he wants.

[Dad blows on his tea a little before taking a sip.]

He's allergic to peanuts.
ooeeooahah: (Hm)

[personal profile] ooeeooahah 2011-12-27 11:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Ah, just peanuts, or would tree-nuts be included in that?

[ Very serious, but not panicked. ]

No, just peanuts. Everything else should be fine.
ooeeooahah: (smile)

I'll make sure to keep him out of the peanut butter. At least peanuts aren't as prevalent in this time as in mine.

I appreciate it. Let me know if he causes you any trouble, but he's a good kid, so I'm sure you won't have too many problems.

I doubt he'll give me much trouble, considering the vibe he gives off.

[ She smiles as she sips her tea. ]

Yeah, I think it'll be fine.
