R eindeer Travels

I've missed talking with you every morning. Fortunately it looks like life in the aftermath of our monster ice storm is slowly returning to normal. You know what that means, don't you? Yeah, that's right...soon I'll be caught up with everything and back to chatting with you first thing every morning.

Still on the rush to catch up, so I'm just going to share a quick, but true story with you. I hope it'll make you smile the way it did me.

The names have been omitted to protect the innocent.

Picture of those morning Breakfast with Santa deals. Lots of happy children, fabulous Santa, French toast sticks to die for. All good, right?

After breakfast has officially ended, one little girl goes to restroom to use facilities. Still, all good. When smiling child emerges from bathroom, who does she see? Why, Santa, of course! Only now, Santa is in street clothes and heading for parking lot, where he gets into a pick-up truck and drives off. Now, not so good.

How to explain this to wonderful child?

Simple. Everyone knows that sometimes the reindeer fly ahead and meet Santa at his next stop, don't they?

All I can say is I'm glad Santa didn't shave in the men's room. Now that would've been really hard to explain!

HaHa! You don't know what I go through to keep Santa, well, Santa for my three, including my 10 year old. It isn't easy these days.
