Right about now you are probably on a much needed and deserved break in an exotic tropical island somewhere. I hope you brought Mrs Claus along!
I think you probably do not expect any letters from anyone since Christmas is over and I am sure you and your elves and trusted reindeers have done a good job distributing gifts to all the well-behaved children in the world.
I am writing to thank you for stopping by my home and leaving so many gifts under our tree! My kids were overjoyed with the toys they found there. Ryan was estatic with his Transformer BumbleBee Toy which actually transforms into a car! Darlene was delighted with her toy toaster!
I want to thank you for the Pierre Balmain shirt I received. It’s real nice and I think it made me look at least 20 years younger! I also like the L’Umo socks that has those bright red linings. You truly know my heart as I believe socks need not be just plain boring blue, black or brown. The hankerchieves were an extra bonus. You shouldn’t have because I already have about 30 of them at last count!
However, I feel I need to highlight some matters regarding the other gifts.
1. The nice and trendy t-shirt I got was about 2 sizes too big for me. Please remember, Santa, that not everyone is Santa-size in Malaysia.
2. The toaster toy broke within 30 minutes of play leading to unnecessary tears shedding. Ryan was to be blamed I guess. He must have thought the toaster was a toy hydraulic jack! Anyway, I have fixed it with some superglue. Next year I think it would be wise if you can advise your elves to get more hardy and durable toys when they go sourcing for toys in China.
3. The 500 pieces Winnie-the-Poo jigsaw puzzle my daughter received has ONE missing piece! I hardly think it is appropriate at such early years of her life to teach her that life indeed is not perfect! Withholding that vital piece from her is a tad sadistic of you, Santa.
Still, we had a wonderful Christmas. The stuffed roasted turkey was delicious and we had a good time with loved ones near and far over dinner. Laughter and mirth filled the air.
I hope you will remember my Christmas Wish List when you are preparing my gifts for next Christmas. I was a bit disappointed that I did not get the BMW 3 Series that I asked for (I don’t mind even if it’s in silver colour instead of black). I guess it was too short a notice. I am told that the ignition key of a BMW or Bently is ideal for eliciting the Babinski’s Sign. So, you see, getting the BMW is pertinent and vital to my work. In fact, I would be delighted if you could fast forward it a bit and let me have it by, say, Easter 2008!
Anyway, have a wonderful holiday and here’s wishing you a very Happy New Year!
PS: Please watch your cholesterol level and your BMI! Wouldn’t want you to have a coronary event before you deliver my BMW, would we?! ;P
