Christmas Cheer!

by Allezw2

The storm, blowing snow, and an icy road slowed me driving late from Mom's Christmas dinner to the rig.

A big PU, no lights, blocked the narrow road. I stopped. A car was in the bar pit. Two guys stood over another on the ground by it. Nearer, I saw the car's heavy damage.

One looked at me. Alcohol and slurred words hit me.

"Sumbitch wouldn't get out of our way."

The other one shot me in the face.
