MY LETTER TO SANTA
Can you believe it? Only 7 days left to go before Christmas! Have you written your letter to Santa Claus yet? I just finished mine yesterday. It took a long time, cause you have to write it by hand and that means there's no spell-check, and it's kinda messy, cause my handwriting's not that great yet. I wasn't really sure what to say to him either, so I went through quite a few drafts, but I think I covered all of the important things.
"I tried to tell him it didn't have to be perfect, but he insisted on getting it just right... And on doing it all by himself."-Editor/Mom
I know it's not perfect, but I think I did a pretty good job. I'm glad that my Mom Googled the address and helped me with the envelope though, cause she said that if the Mailman can't read it, or the numbers aren't just right, it won't ever get there, and the North Pole is really far away as it is. That took a long time, cause we had to make sure I wrote all of the letters and numbers the way they're supposed to be.
Then we put the letter in the envelope, pasted some stamps on the envelope and brought it out to the mail box so that Ed, our Mailman, could pick it up and deliver it for me. I hope it gets there in time.
"You did a really good job David, and I'm sure it'll get there in time. I have to say I'm surprised your list wasn't a lot longer."-Editor/Mom
Well, I already have a lot of toys, and I really don't care what's inside the shiny paper, as long as it makes noise when I bite it. Oh NO! I didn't write that I like squeaky toys! Or bones! Can I add stuff to my letter? Is it too late? Did the Mailman already come? Can I write another letter?
"Ummm, hold on there. Your letter is definitely on it's way already, but I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you. Santa knows that all dogs love bones and squeaky toys, and you 'have' been a very good boy, so I'm sure he'll bring you everything you want for Christmas."-Editor/Mom
Jeez, I sure hope so. Thanks Mom.
