Diane asked:

Franny didn't share the story of her and Albie outside in the snow while there was a Christmas party going on inside her mother's house - why? What did she have to keep for herself?

Michelle Kirkham Do you mean at the end? Here mother wasn't having a Christmas party while they were outside. She was at Bert's house while her mother's party was going on and when she was leaving, she was standing on the porch, thinking about the time when her and Albie were kids and were sitting outside in the snow when he was stoned. I don't know why she kept it to herself..maybe it was too special for her to share?
