My Christmas List

Dear Santa,

Really, do I have to get
phone calls from Ann Coulter?
Could you get me off her list?

I’ve been naughty…couldn’t
help myself…I know you brought me
that new diabetic meter a couple
of years ago…but that coconut
cream pie with that huge meringue
kept flirting with me…he..ummm …
it disappeared without a trace.

That’s about it…wait…bless all
the toads in the garden with
the gifts they have on their
Christmas lists…Have you ever
heard grumpy croaking? Not good.


P.S. Sorry there won’t be any cookies this year,
but enjoy the glass of skim milk.

Mama Zen at Real Toads had us writing to Santa. 
Looking forward to seeing if he delivers. :)

This had me grinning! Except now I really want coconut cream pie when I should be settling for skim milk...

Margaret said...

love, love the ending. ;)

Susan said...

May the phone calls cease and the sweets stop flirting!

Kerry O'Connor said...

This was a lot of fun, and I'm sure that all in the garden appreciate your kind thoughts.

Laurie Kolp said...

Ditto to what Susan said, although it is really hard to resist the sweets this time of year.

Mary said...

May your wishes come true!!

Marian said...

If Coulter was calling me, I'd be asking Santa for a new, UNLISTED phone number...happy skim milk and nice wholesome fruit! I have become very fond of greek yogurt myself. ;_)

Helen said...

... now I'm wondering how someone 'makes' the Coulter List!!!! Or maybe I don't want to know?

Your wishes are sweet .. in the best sense of the word.

Haha - I hope you get OFF the Ann's list, and as long as you're on Santa's naughty list you might was well enjoy it! ;-)
This was fun, Merry Christmas!

Mama Zen said...

Ann Coulter? Yikes!

Hannah said...

Ella said...
