Writing a letter to Santa, as an adult, can be fun. I'll admit, writing to Santa at my age made me feel silly and immature. But for a moment, I could be selfish and ask for anything my heart desired. I was not expecting a reply. But I received one.
I hope I'm not writing too late this year. I have been terribly busy lately. But I wanted to get my letter to you so you'd know I hadn't forgotten.
It's been a long time since I've written to you, but I still think of you this time of year as my boys are constantly bickering about who is getting what from you.
I'd like to think I've been very good this year, although some may disagree. I work hard to provide for my boys and I think I'm doing a good job as well.
You know what I'd really like this year for Christmas? Yes, I do need socks, it's been bitterly cold in Weyburn so far this winter, but I'd really love to have a 1971 Hemi Cuda. In a conversation earlier this year, bucket lists came up. This car is one of two things I have on mine. The other is eating Chinese Food out of a box. Please don't bring me Chinese Food.
Have a safe trip, Santa. I'll leave a plate of cookies out for you again this year.
I have been checking my lists and checking them twice. There you are on my naughty list! How is it that at your age, you haven't figured out how to get on my good list and stay there?
I know you want a 1971 Hemi Cuda for Christmas, you've been asking for that car for 24 years. If you had landed on my good list, I may have surprised you with it. As for now, I plan to leave you socks!
There is a chance you could redeem yourself by doing what all the good boys and girls do and cut out all your naughty habits.
Oh, one more thing, it's about time you learned how to cook, don't you think? Both of your children are getting fed up with eating hot dogs and Kraft Dinner for every meal! Take a cooking class already!
I know you have a pretty good heart and although you've been naughty, you actually do some things right. So I want to congratulate you on those things.
When I pass through Weyburn on Christmas Eve, if you were to leave something to wash down your terrible cookies, it may earn you a few brownie points.
Whatever brings you happiness, may it be yours this holiday season and throughout the coming year. Merry Christmas from my house to yours.
