I mean, what’s the point? No one is giving me any presents to put under the tree, and I don’t have anyone special in my life for whom I will be holiday shopping.
So a Christmas tree would just be a shiny, sparkly immobile target for the kitties to attack for a month. Yes, Cleo, I’m talking about you!
But that doesn’t mean I don’t want anything for Christmas. The little boy in me still secretly hopes that Santa Claus will visit The House on the Hill and leave me some beautifully wrapped presents.
After all, I was a very good boy this year. Which Santa knows to be true because he sees us when we’re sleeping, knows when we’re awake, and has better assets than the NSA to keep an eye on us.
This got me to thinking. Just because I don’t have a Christmas shopping list, doesn’t mean I don’t want to know what people want for Christmas.
So will you tell me?
If you could ask Santa Claus for anything this Christmas, what would it be?
Don’t worry, this isn’t some sort of test. I’m not expecting you all to answer “World Peace”. This is just a fun exercise to help spread a little Christmas Spirit.
I’ll get things started.
If I could have one thing for Christmas this year, it would be a new laptop. The one on which I’m typing this post has bee on its last legs for months.
The space bar rarely works. The J key has a mind of its own. The battery dies after about thirty minutes of use. This is no way for a writer to live.
So, Santa Claus, I could really use a new laptop this year!
What do you want for Christmas? Please take the time to answer as your replies will be like mini Christmas presents for me…
