Coco and Colette spent Christmas Eve at an intimate soiree hosted by Colette's neighbor. You know the one--the neighbor with the Shepherd mix that wrapped Coco around at tree? The neighbor's mother was vacationing in Boca, so her condo at the Chase Park Plaza was empty and begging for company. So, the neighbor invited some close friends to share merriment and revelry.
The views of Forest Park were stunning from twenty-five stories high, and the girls enjoyed peering through the telescope to watch the skaters at Steinberg ice rink. The neighbor served cranberry martinis and assorted crudites and canapes. It didn't take long for everyone to become cheerful and gay and share their best memories of 2015 and secret hopes for the new year.
Speaking of gay, one of the evening's highlights was when Bruce, a silver fox with an affection for dry martinis, whooped it up on the piano for a holiday sing-along. There was laughter and cheer through "Rudolph" and "Frosty," and then something amazing happened.
A handsome bond trader grabbed Colette by the hand and twirled her into an embrace just as Bruce was pounding the first few bars of "Baby it's Cold Outside." Suddenly, Colette found herself singing an impromptu duet with the bond trader while the other guests gawked and gleamed. Coco, camouflaging her phone behind a poinsettia, secretly recorded the whole thing, just in case it would turn into true love.
The evening ended after the cathedral bells struck one, and wouldn't you know it? The bond trader gallantly walked the girls home. Colette kept being coy and trying on his hat while Coco acted busy on her phone as to buy them some privacy. There may or may not have been a kiss under the mistletoe and some promises exchanged. Coco would have to find out tomorrow.
Merry Christmas, friends! XO, Poppy
