No, not Santa, silly, Second Son. This boy has been collecting catalogs like crazy, seizing them from the newspaper and mail with reckless abandon. He even got in a fight with my husband because he wouldn’t relinquish the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog, prime bathroom reading material. I’m sure Santa took notice of that infraction. Second Son takes Christmas very seriously. A catalog barely makes it into this house before being absconded by him. He then, disappears, pencil in hand, to circle everything and anything that his little heart desires. When I told him that he needs to make a list for Santa. He told me the catalogs are the list.
Having a close connection to Santa, I happened to take a gander at one of these “lists” the other day. Everything was circled. Talk about crossing all your t’s and dotting all your i’s. I guess he’s not leaving anything to chance.
