Sunday Writing Prompt – Countdown


Dear Santa,

I have been a good boy this year despite what my older brother might have told you.

The incident with the cat was not my fault. It was an unfortunate accident and mum says the cat will be coming home from cat rehab in the next few days.

I was good at school this year, my report said I was a trying student which mum said was good as it could have been worse.

I got selected in the school debating team, the teacher said I had an active tongue and imagination and even though we didn’t win, again not my fault, we put up a good fight, literally though I have since learned debating to be more verbal fighting than physical, but as you’d appreciate Dear Santa, education is about learning, and I’ve learned a lot this past year.

I think therefore I am deserving of a new bike and a new iPad. My mate Harley has a new bike, and I hate that I have to go riding with him on my old rusty one. I promise if you bring me a bike to not leave it out in the rain.

The iPad I need for school as my teacher says I need one to complete my work, though she often says I need to be distracted from pulling Josie Jacob’s hair, and as I’m determined to be more studious next year an iPad will be a great start. I also promise to stay away from my brother’s porn sites.

I hope you see favourably my way dear Santa and enjoy the treats I will leave out for you. Mum says you like a cold can of beer, so I’ll trust her on that one.

Yours sincerely

    I hope Tommy gets his bike. I remember the year I got my bike as if it were yesterday. 😀

    Ahhh Michael! I’m having to step away from the screen, to stop and catch my breath – for the absolute howling laughter and delight, for the tears streaming down my face, for the ache in my belly …. this is one corker of a letter to Santa! Whoot!

    You had me, or rather, Tommy had me at the get go – and I wonder, what exactly happened to the poor cat???! (holy smokes – talk about a “hook” in a story line!)
    As to whether you channeled your inner child, or simply allowed “a” child to run wild and fancy free here, you have, in splendid form, offered us a most delightful, honest and truthful wish list! (Porn included … er …. not!) (Okay, word porn! 😉 )

    This letter speaks with such authenticity, relates truths and confusion of the muddled and curiously eager mind of a child, tells of the tales and fancies, and speaks from the heart! A most glorious accomplishment, and I presume you have enjoyed this writing as much as I’ve absolutely delighted in reading. 😀

    thanks so much for writing to the Sunday prompt this week – and I hope your wishful letter to Santa is equally delightful, and filled with just the right amount of devilish charm! Happy holidays to you Michael 😀

    You know how the mind of a small boy works Michael. I guess you were one too at one time.
    You made me smile while reading this lovely story,

    An ingenious letter.

    I thank you for the gift of a smile. And it wasn’t even on my Santa’s List.:)
