"New carpet, that's what you wanted, and new carpet, that's what you'll get." He was talking aloud to himself but he was also talking to her.
She'd done him wrong . . .but she's going to get what's coming to her. Merry Christmas baby, hope you like what Santa's got for you. ( Laughing
Slowly he rolled the body onto the edge of the carpet. Grasping the carpet in both hands, he began to roll, until the body had completely disappeared
inside. Tying both ends off with rope, he stood up and admired his "wrapping". "Not bad, not bad at all, if I do say so myself."(laughing).
She wanted him . . .now she'd have him. He still couldn't believe she had cheated on him. And especially not with this joker. He died so easily.
He set the rolled carpet inside of a mover's blanket and rolled again. "Merry Christmas Baby." He called the freight company for an afternoon
Later on, watching the freight truck negotiate its way down the slushy street, and away from there, he began to cry.
Back inside, he walked to the fireplace where two stockings hung from the mantel. Opening a Christmas card, he neatly wrote "I love you" with his
pencil, put it in the envelope, and dropped it into the stocking that read "HERS". He was laughing again, but he didn't know why.
And . . .then . . .in the midst of the laughter . . .he cries.
He wrapped himself in beautiful blue paper, accented with metallic blue ribbons. Outside the snow began to fall heavily. He was ready.
In the morning, they'd find that the stockings were not the only thing hung on the chimney with care. Pretty paper . .pretty ribbons . .of blue.
