DISCLAIMER: Some other lucky beggar owns the characters. Sorry for treading on any toes
NOTE: I wanted to write a drabble based around the line, "You mean you forgot cranberries too?" from the excellent Christmas Wrapping by Waitresses (Written by Chris Butler, (c) 1981 Future Fossil Music, BMI).

The Long and the Short of It
(Bah, Humbug!) - Drabble
Looking at the fresh cranberries, Janet felt a presence beside her. Glancing sideways she saw Sam.
"Don't tell me you forget cranberries, too."
"Hey Janet, do you fancy a coffee, or something stronger?"
Later, over bourbon, Sam suddenly murmured, "God, I missed you, Janet."
"Huh?" Janet eloquently replied, "Sam, I saw you just two hours ago!"
"Yeah, but two hours is way too long."
"I know, but you have the guys and I have my family."
Grinning excitedly Sam replied, "So, Boxing Day? Just me, you and plans?"
Parting with a hug, Christmas apart, Boxing Day together, the future ??
