This story is more like a sugar cookie than a slice of fruitcake — which I have yet to meet one that I like. This is a sweet and fun short story about a retired grandfather (Robert) who’s not keen at all on sticking to a healthy lifestyle that includes a fiber-rich diet, getting exercise, and — from how he sees it — not a whole lot of fun.
When a fruitcake is delivered on Robert and Lydia’s porch, the bored retiree is inspired with an idea for a fun prank. What happens next is some good-natured holiday fun that spices up Robert's retirement. And he seems like the kind of guy who'll think up some other bit of fun after this, to keep spicing things up :)
