Christmas Rainbow Snippet, December 24, 2022 from Jeff Baker: “Green Not Alone in Summertime.”

Every week we post six lines from a work of ours, a work-in-progress or published or a recommendation of someone else’s work with at least one LGBT character. Posted at Rainbow Snippets here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/963484217054974

I like using song titles as story titles, or at least lines from songs that are out of copyright. This Christmassy story “Green Not Alone In Summertime” has two young husbands talking about Christmas, even though the story was published and takes place in March! https://authorjeffbaker.com/2018/03/16/christmas-in-march-friday-flash-fics-by-jeff-baker-for-march-16-2018/

“March is way too early to take Christmas card pictures,” Silvio said.

“Says the man who ordered his nephew’s Christmas present last week,” Mitchell said.

“This way we have it out of the way early,” Silvio said.

“Hey, you’re not thinking of wearing those shorts are you?” Mitchell asked.

“You mean that underwear with Santa on it?” Silvio said. “Sure, if I lose a bunch of pounds and go to the gym ‘till I look like some buff gym bunny.”

Okay, that’s it for this week! Wishing you all the best for Christmas and the New Year! ——jeff

  1. I say he shouldn’t worry about looking like a buff gym bunny. Have fun–wear the Santa underwear!

  2. Lovely snippet and the Santa undies banter made me smile!

    I love the humor in this. (and I love using song lyrics as titles too)
