Dear Santa ~
Carrie has been a very bad girl.
Please bring her a lump of coal. A really really big one. Maybe two or three. When we went outside to find my rock, she told me that we were going to play. Instead she put this thing on my head and made me sit on the cold, wet concrete.
For letting her do this to me, I think I deserve a big box of treats. A really really big one. Maybe two or three.
After this, Carrie is going off to work and she'll be gone all day. When I ask her if anything interesting or exciting has been happening there, she just rolls her eyes and starts grumbling about grouchy shoppers, parking lots, cellphones, last minute shoppers who get mad that everything they want is out of stock and peppermint bark. I didn't know peppermint could bark.
Carrie told me a story she thought was kind of funny, I think she got it in an e-mail. It was at your expense so please note that I didn't laugh ~ another reason Carrie should get some coal this year!
According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer of each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of Winter, usually in late-November to mid-December. But female reindeer keep their antlers until after they give birth in the Spring. So according to every historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, every single one of them from Rudolph to Blitzen had to have been a girl. Which makes perfect sense because only women would have been able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit around the world in one single night and not get lost!
Merry Christmas! I hope you and everyone at the North Pole have a very happy, safe and Merry Christmas!
Love and big wet kisses from me!
