“Warm, sensitive – and absolutely hilarious” – Grady Harp,
This is the first story I read by Dan Alatorre. If this one is any indication of his writing ability, his humor, and his ability at capturing the essence of a situation, I will be reading more.
“Santa Maybe” begins with a description of an annual event in the Alatorre house––making huge batches of onion spread to put into canning jars to give to family and friends as Christmas gifts. But what happens when you run out of jars? You send your husband out to buy more jars––except that it’s already canning season and most stores are out of jars. And what happens when finds some but they’re the wrong size? That means sending him out to find the right size and return the wrong-size jars to the store from which they were purchased.
Somehow Dan Alatorre finds the humor (or, as some might describe it, the “silver lining”) in what would otherwise be a stressful situation. And, with Savvy, his three-year-old daughter, in tow, the trip back to Target to return the jars, turns out to be a magical moment in her life, as she and her dad have a chance encounter with Santa Claus.
This little story, which can easily be read in half an hour, will warm your heart and put a smile on your face.
You deserve a smile.
