So today I wrote my letter to Santa Clause and will be sending it out in the mail tomorrow. I chose a very lovely stationary with snowflakes and Christmas trees. It ended up taking 3.5 pages but not because I’m greedy. My handwriting is atrocious and very big, so it takes up a lot of room on unlined paper. Below is a picture of the finished letter and a translation underneath so you can see what I wrote.
Dear Santa Claus,
I know that it’s been a while since I wrote you a letter, probably almost twenty years, but it’s never too late to catch up, right?
How are the reindeer? Are the elves surviving these hard, economic times? I hope so, they always seemed like such a jolly lot.
Anyway, I don’t want to take up too much of your time, so here is the list of things I was kind of hoping to get for Christmas.
- A new boxspring for my bed. It was damaged in a freak accident and now my side of the bed dips. This makes for a most uncomfortable sleep at night.
- A pug named GIR so the Peep can have a friend and stop torturing the boyfriend on a daily basis.
- Fuzzy dice to hang from the rearview mirror in my car. Because Bob the Car is just that classy.
- A belted sweater for the boyfriend because I can’t find them anywhere. His favourite colour is orange.
- Another Snuggie. I know that I already have one, and I love the way it’s warmth and coziness invades me while it steals my soul, but I can get cold at work and would like to have one there as well.
- I’d really like someone to make a She-Ra movie. There are no good cartoons left in the world and that was one of the best and greatest roll models for girls and she was the best. Boys got a He-Man movie and I’m still waiting for my She-Ra film. I’m sure you have connections in Hollywood and can make this happen.
- By the way, since he doesn’t have opposable thumbs, Mr. Peep would like cat food that is easily opened so he doesn’t have to wait until the boyfriend and I get up to eat his tasty breakfast. Because, trust me, Mr. Peep is not impressed with his humans sleeping in.
- I know that this is a very nerd-like request, but please bring back Buffy and Firefly. Please????
- A new duvet would be lovely because the boyfriend stole mine two years ago and I haven’t been able to snuggle into it’s pillowy goodness ever since. I miss my duvet, Santa, a lot and I’d be very appreciative to have another one. We don’t share blankets very well, so no, that is not an option.
- Lastly, Santa, I would like a winter coat. I used to have several and somehow, they have all disappeared. It may be the boyfriend’s way of getting me to buy a new coat as the old ones were ten years old. I live in Southwestern Ontario. It’s freaking cold here and the moderately rated one I have isn’t really cutting it.
So, in closing, I would like to thank you for your time and tell you that its been wonderful writing you a letter again after so long. I hope your trip is good this year and Merry Christmas to you.
