I had been very diligent about telling Santa Claus exactly what I wanted and I had taken extra care to be good. I know what is expected of me.
Still, as the excitement grew I couldn't control myself, before I could catch myself I was misbehaving!
The threat came out, Daddy told me he had Santa on speed dial and could call him back at a moments notice.
No way was I going to risk coming so close only to blow it.
I figured a guy with Santa's appetite would appreciate a bribe of some cookies and milk. If I could at least get the guy down the chimney he would forget any minor transgressions once he was munching some cookies.
I reverently put them in place. I think I am going to make it to the finish line!
