For a full year I’ve been hearing off and on about last year’s Christmas disaster. Why DIDN’T Santa bring him the machine that shot out mittens that Jackson asked for?
Really, it was what his heart of hearts wanted. I had no idea how to make that happen and I happen to be fairly creative.
I blame it on lack of television.
It’s really hard to know what you want when commercials aren’t telling you.
I’m all for TV. We just don’t happen to have it (at least complete with stations and commercials). So, I thought I’d one-up him this year. I downloaded the Toys R Us app for the Ipad. This WAS indeed very entertaining and Jack quickly added 230 things to his Christmas list. I’m not quite sure he knew what he was “asking” for, but, you know, whatever.
Enter Christmas Bell, our elf, whom Jack speaks with regarding Christmas, well, alot. He has begun a series of lists for Christmas Bell to bring to Santa that are not looking good.
He would like according the latest and greatest list:– a phone. (REALLY?!) A phone with the number 50910.096.18690 to be exact, but supposedly you could dial just 18690 to reach him – a machine that makes cookies – a building, like a hotel – a magic toy robot – a magic wand that WORKS – magic (in general, the ability to do magic)
