Jesus Loves Me But He Can’t Stand You (A Miniature Story for Christmas)

Happy Christmas week! Today on Meta-Talon we share a short story from M.A.C. Farrant’s book The Breakdown So Far (2007), which is available from Talon for $17.95.


JESUS LOVES ME BUT HE CAN’T STAND YOU

I’m drinking alone this Christmas.

I’ve hired a wino to decorate my home.

I’ve put a bar in the back of my car so I can drive myself to drink.

Jesus, will you be drinking with me this Christmas?

Will you be thinking of me if you do?

My head hurts and my feet stink.

I don’t know whether to kill myself or go bowling.
