Santa Claus...

Given the recent Tooth Fairy incident, I figured I'd better milk Santa for all he's worth this year. It'll probably be his last...

Not finished yet...


  1. The incident with the Tooth Fairy reminded me of my husband's "Eureka!" when he was around 4. My mother-in-law, going through serious financial difficulties, opted to tell him all the "truth" about Santa Claus (so that he wouldn't be angry or feel rejected, those kind of things). He took the news quite nicely. Some hours later, and precisely when he was taking a shower, he add 2 and 2 and went out of the bathroom saying out loud: "If Santa doesn't exist, so the Easter Bunny is also a fake!!!!"

    (Something in the line of "Elementar, my dear Watson")

    My husband still feels so proud about his early logic skills! I have been listening to this domestic "Archimedean" story for a couple of decades now!

    Your daughter looks puzzled, soon she will forget about Santa and ask you for expensive clothes as a Christmas present!

    By the way - Have a wonderful Christmas, you and your family.

    Guess I write to much, don't I? Take it as a sort of compensation for those very short comments you get last time hehehe...

  2. Claudia,

    You mean if I tell about how I learned to tie my shoelaces you won't be impressed? Women generally are not impressed by these kinds of stories (from grown men)?
    Lucky for me my wife didn't know any English when I met her!

    My daughter probably seems puzzled because she's writing a letter to Santa Claus just to humor her father who thinks she still believes in Santa.

    I hope you and your family had a good Christmas, and wish you all the best in the New Year.
