The Great Christmas Escape: A Trash Goblin's Tale 🎄👹

Our quiet bookworm found herself in the eye of a holiday storm, with a house full of excited kids and tipsy adults. Her solution? Transform into a 'trash goblin', hiding amongst the discarded wrapping paper in the laundry room. But when her hideout was discovered, the festive cheer turned sour. Accusations flew, with family members claiming she shirked her 'duty' to watch the kids. Yet, no one had actually asked her to play babysitter. Even the kids were upset, having been drafted into childcare duties during her absence. Now, she's left wondering if her Christmas escape made her the Grinch of the family gathering. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🎄👹
