But I might stick a poison apple in your stocking
Shylee: Are we going to have a Christmas tree this year?
Me: Of course we are. Why do you ask?
Shylee: I just thought you might not let us have one.
It's interesting to learn that you're perceived as the kind of person who might blacklist Christmas trees. My mind raced, trying to pinpoint the moment I had said or done something to make her think that. I was sure I'd never given her that impression; I love Christmas!
Then it hit me -- I'm the EVIL stepmother! I'm supposed to ban Christmas trees and kick puppies and things of that sort. Sometimes I have to be reminded.
