That's the big question, isn't it? We'll get asked that question many times over the course of December, and we'll probably ask it ourselves to several people. It can be a tough question, or it can be an easy question. Some people know exactly how to answer it. "I want an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!" And some people have no idea whatsoever what they want. In her letter to Santa (as dictated to my wife) my three year-old daughter said, "Please bring me a present, not a froggy. I want a froggy and a toy dinosaur and a toy lion in the present." (I'm honestly not sure if she wants a froggy or not.)
|Merry Christmas to all!!!|
So, what do I want for Christmas this year? Not much. Just a few things like:
*I would like an end to partisan bickering, so that members of both parties could spend more time working to continue to make this nation a wonderful place to live instead of calling each other names and worrying about getting re-elected.
*I would like the Minnesota Vikings to win the Super Bowl this year. (Just one championship. That's all I'm asking for! C'mon, if Tampa Bay can have a championship why can't the Vikings?)
*I would like automatic computer updates that update at convenient times for me, and don't mess up my computer.
*I would like all television commercials to be rated "G." I shouldn't have to have the "birds and the bees" talk with my seven year-old because of an advertisement during a timeout in the basketball game.
*I would like some egg nog.
*I would like good health for me and my family. And my friends. And other people, too.
*I would like world peace.
*I would like lettuce to taste like bacon.
*I would like to be able to tell my children something once, and have them hear me and do the thing I wanted them to do after only telling them one time.
*I would like happiness for me and my family. And my friends. And other people, too.
(I don't want to be too greedy. I'll settle for any one of these things.)
