but, there he was. Just sitting in his little house, with a mailbox out front and everything. And, well, I just could NOT resist the temptation to stop in and say hello.
Suddenly I was panicked. I didn't know what I should ask for, for Christmas. Is it proper etiquette to direct Santa to my Amazon.com wishlist? What if I ask for something that his elves can't get me, something that's out of stock or out of season? I don't want to put pressure on the old guy - he's already taking care of gifts for how many children this season?!
So, in the end, I didn't ask for anything. I just smiled and asked if I could have my picture taken with him. I said, "I'm really just a big kid." Santa replied, "So am I! Ho ho ho!" What a great guy. I love the man with the snowy beard & big red suit. When I grow up, I want to be just like him (well, maybe not the snowy beard part...that would be a bit disturbing). Hey! Do you think maybe he'll take me on as an elf trainee?
