Another Very Short Christmas Story

Betty and June decided to dress up for their first Christmas in their new "bachelor gal" apartment together. "Heck," said June, "when are we ever going to wear our ball-gowns in Schenectaty otherwise?!" Betty laughed lightly. "You bet!" she said. They had sausage-rolls and highballs, watched the Chordettes Christmas Special, and laughed and laughed. It was forty-eight years later, almost to the day, when Betty buried June with a rose from the hem of her pink taffeta.
