Christmas Cheer

Behold..a dinner table laden with Christmas food cooked by moi…fried plantain, turkey, roast potatoes, corn, sprouts and all around, the mellifluous sound of Yuletide laughter as we watch re runs of Columbo on TV – a little nostalgia to warm the cockles of a family’s heart….

Beside me…a hooded figure sits with her head bowed tapping the screen of a brand new android phone. I’m expecting her to say ‘humbug’ any minute…She comes up for air, looks at the turkey on her plate….then at me…then at the turkey..then me.. 

Daughter: Can I order a pizza?
