This afternoon after a long busy week a fellow that works in the office came running onto my office in a panic and told me I had to do him a favor. He was going to transfer a phone call over to me and I had to play Santa Claus. As he runs back out I shout "What?????"
The phone rings and I pick it up and in the deepest voice I can manage I say "Hello?"
On the other end of the line I hear the scared voice of a little boy.
"Santa, this is ---------, Mom and I just moved and I was afraid you don't know where we live now. Mom said you did but I wasn't sure"
"HoHoHo, Oh yes I know exactly where you live. I have your new address right here in front of me and I plan on visiting you on Christmas Eve" You make sure you get to bed early so I can visit"
"Oh yes Santa I will go to bed early. Mom and I are going to watch a movie but that won't take long."
"HoHo, good and do you think you might be able to leave me a couple of cookies to eat when I get there?"
"Oh yes Santa, and a glass of milk."
"Oh wonderful. Well don't you worry. I will be there on Christmas Eve."
"OK" and then in a whisper...."And Santa? Can I tell you what I want?"
"Oh sure you can."
"I want a kite. One of those square ones."
"Oh my, that is a wonderful gift. I have it written down. I will be there in just a few days."
"OK Santa. Thank you. Bye bye,"
I have to say, after I hung up the phone, I felt pretty good. I just hope his Mom got him that kite. LOL
