Addressed to my daughter, it was. And said right there on the return address, “Santa Claus - the North Pole.” It was postmarked California, though; I think Santa’s taking a vacation in the warm before his overtime shift starts next week.
The look on my daughter’s face - wow. Just the memory of it will be enough to make every Christmas merry for me from now until the day I die.
So, Santa, if you’re reading this (and I know you are ;):D) - thank you. And mini-Marli thanks you, as well. You’re beyond awesome.
