Conversation at the checkout counter, as “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” plays on the store’s sound system:
CHECKER: Why aren’t they playing Christmas music?
BAGGER: This is from “The Nutcracker.”
CHECKER: Is that a scary movie?
CHECKER: Oh, it’s a Christmas movie?
BAGGER: Yes! I think it starred Barbie.
This is like one of those stories where the person rescuing you from the vampire, turns out also to be a vampire.
