Let the Singing Begin

It was an unusual interview. The woman explained she was writing an article for a national magazine on clever ways to put more joy into the holidays.

So I proceeded to pitch to her one marvelous holiday cost-cutting idea after another. And one after another, my ideas landed with a thud. She didn’t like them at all. That’s when she made a comment that effectively brought the interview to a screeching halt.

She called me a grinch.

Now she didn’t actually come right out and say, “You Grinch!” She suggested my ideas would take all the fun and joy out of the season. She assured me it was nothing personal but still, she called me a grinch.
