Just have to share this…

After work yesterday, I stopped in at a local store to buy a Santa hat to wear at next week's office Christmas party. Naturally, I tried it on to make sure it would fit.

No sooner did I have it on my head, but a child who must have been about four years old down at the far end of the aisle threw his hands up in the air, yelled "Santa!" and ran up to me on his stubby little legs and hugged my leg.

He said, "Santa, my sister broke my toy robot. Can you fix it?"
I replied, "No, sorry. Santa doesn't fix toys, he just delivers them."
The boy looked crestfallen, and not wanting to rain on his parade, I added, "But I know some elves who might be able to help, so I'll see what I can do."

Ho, Ho, Ho!
(Here's a picture from last year's Christmas party, wearing a borrowed Santa hat; now you see why I need my own.)

Cute, and the faux-Santa enounter appears to have been handled very deftly by he who has no children.

Not to worry; I still have time before the actual holiday to get my more usual "Bah, humbug!" on.

Wasn't that your profile picture last year. I do think it's time to bring it back. 🎅

Cute. My husband has a grey beard. too.
Last winter, a few days after Christmas, we were at one of our favorite watering holes having a bite to eat. The waitress had her daughter in with her waiting for her father to pick her up. The little girl kept staring at my husband. I over heard her tell a customer that she got a Wii for Christmas. I told my husband to ask the girl how she liked her Wii. Her eyes got big and she said " I knew it! You are Santa Claus!"

DON'T - if you have any taste, refinement DON'T...

Dear Protagonist - you may want to shave the beard - I just saw your commercial on youtube. I was horrified but I can't stop laughing yet.

For anyone else reading this post, please AVOID using Google to search for the Youtube video:

Poo Pourri Santa

You don't want to see this. Ever.

I had search for it, despite your admonition, just to see what the Charles Dickens you were talking about. That guy does resemble me, somewhat— but so does every other bald fat man with a gray beard and eyeglasses. At least I'm smart enough to lock the bathroom door, unlike the guy in the video!

I think I'll keep the beard, though. Potty humor video or not, I haven't shaved off my beard since August 1978, and wouldn't even recognize myself clean-shaven if I looked in a mirror.
