Dear Santa…

Dear Santa…

I just wanted to write you a short note.

I don’t know if I qualify for the nice list or not this year, I just want to be clear on the parameters.

So the part where you better not shout, you better not cry, you better not pout…

Does that mean like ever?

I mean for a while I have been okay on the shouting part. I haven’t had to lay into anyone in ages, so I am good there…but the crying and pouting part, maybe not so much.

I was just wondering if you could cut me some slack for that.


But like my newly made friends, we have persevered and sucked it up, tears and all…I also know I am not alone here, the other girls and probably some of the boys are in the same situation.

So I was just wondering, if you could spare us some chocolate and maybe a new pair of socks, you know…instead of coal and wilty carrots. I can do without the old potato too, I am sure there are people that have been grumpier than me that you can give it to.

And even though I haven’t got your cookies baked yet, I have a wee window of time after my finals that should be enough to get you some of my shortbread cookies on Christmas Eve night.

Do you do finals? Cause I could use some good luck if you could throw some my way a little before Christmas…I mean it is my birthday too, and I am going to be 49.  All those things mixed together must give me a little bit of leverage, right?

And I don’t really want anything major, a few hugs, some good laughs and of course some pie…other than that, the only thing I really need is some sleep.

And socks. I was kinda serious about that. Socks are expensive, I bet you can get a better deal.

And chocolate. Because, well. It’s Christmas, and you don’t have to make excuses because you just ate a whole box of Pot of Gold.

So if you could make a few exceptions this year, my fellow students and I would be eternally grateful.

Thank you in advance.

Yours truly, Donna.

    Chocolate and sleep sounds about right. And forgiveness for grumpiness, i need that too and I’m not even in school.
    I would like my computer back in one piece so I don’t have to do all this from my iPhone anymore.
