You spend a lot of time with your family weekly.
You've been invited to spend Christmas with your best friend's family in sunny California.
You'd like a trip because life has been a bit mundane lately.
You tell your mother and she's upset but it seems to be okay.
The closer it gets to the time you're supposed to leave...the saltier she gets.
Your sister tells you that she's hurt and LIVID that you won't be home for Christmas.
