The Dress

My meeting with Mrs. Claus today was very brief. I had barely made it into the anteroom of her study when she came brushing in from the other door with a garment bag in her hand and instructed me to sit on a bench under a large painting of her with a reindeer.
She said, "It's lovely to see you. I apologize for the brevity of this meeting, but I'll see you for a moment later tonight. In honor of your success with Old News, I've borrowed this dress for you. I'll send for it in the morning."
And with that, along with a quick unzip and re-zip of the bag, she handed me the dress and ushered me out the door and down the staircase.
