Margie Writes Santa

Dear Santa,

Margie here. I'm sorry we haven't spoken since 1947 but I've felt sure you never got over me turning down your marriage proposal. I hope you understand that I would never have defied my parents and they had many concerns about me marrying you.

First, Daddy said a gentleman would have a proper vehicle in which to come calling on a lady. A sleigh is not one.


Two, Mama said a gentleman does not court a lady without changing his clothes on occasion. She hated your red suit.

Third, you know I told you that I could never live with a bunch of elves who hammered and banged all night for 365 days a year.


I'm hoping that eases your mind as I do need to ask your help this Christmas. My finances are tight in our current economy so I'm asking you to deliver some gifts for me. Here's my list:

Please bring Cousin T a new hat to wear to church. I think he'd look quite dapper in red.


Please bring my sister, Edna, a year's supply of her medicine. She's never gotten over those headaches you caused her to have from all that "Ho, Ho, Ho" stuff.


Finally, all I want is this:


Merry Christmas,

Did he reply? I need to write something to Santa too; it seems that a lot of people are financially tight this Christmas.

My beacon would shine far and wide in a hat like that! Sitting in my pew I would have to play up my most innocent smile so as people didn't think I came up to church instead of over and across. :-)

Miss edna does deserve some more medicine as she is more than willing to share hers with others who take sick.(*Cough*)

And miss Margie I hope you get all that you desire as well. (Dont'cha just love the english laguage?)

-Cousin T.

Well, I certainly think that such a nice letter deserves a reply. Let's hope that Santa is gentlemanly enough to do so.

The "Ho Ho Ho" medicine put me in mind of some so-called white wine I had once in my wild youth called Si Si Si. It should have been called No No No, in fact.

Oh, that reminds me that I need to start carefully drafting my letter to Santa!

blissful weddings said...

i'm still thinking what to write to'z i have lot of things to ask for :D

Sarah said...

So Margie - who is this fine little cute boy-toy you are hoping to find under your tree on Christmas eve???

Inquiring minds need to know!

angelinabeadalina said...

Well, I think ol' HoHoHo should deliver everything at once-- the fine boytoy wearing the red hat (and nothing else?) and holding the bottle of medicine :)

Jodi said...

Well I hope you and Edna both get what you want from Santa. Have a wonderful day.


Lucky Lady said...

I just love your blog and the picture on the bench is darling if I could I would frame it

Margie and Edna said...

Margie: Oh my goodness! I'm just all a flutter this morning.

Sarah, my boy toy is Jensen Ackles of Supernatural on the CW. Hands off!

angelina, I must call Santa & change my wishes. Yours is the best idea I've ever heard.

luckylady, I'd be happy to send you an autographed picture of my likeness!

Thank you all. Oh, Cousin T, I'm sorry but I need that hat.

Karen said...

I love your list. I hope Santa pays attention!

Akirah said...

LOL! Sometimes you have to be upfront with Santa and tell him what you want.

Alicia aka "Fashiona" said...

That was a lovely note. Make you sure you leave some cookies for him too.

Deb DiSalvo said...

That was funny - it made my day!

abelle | Only in Silence said...

Hey there, Margie. Does he have a brother? ;o)

Signe said...

:D That was great! Can you put me down for one like yours?

cam said...

this is fun!

Santa, i'd like Rob Pattinson. Thank you :) said...

Remember, time heals all wounds.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Em Dy said...

And I'm sure your mom didn't relish the idea of a suitor making his entrance through the chimney. Why couldn't he use the door? And your dad must have said, Santa, you're eating all my cookies and drinking all my milk!

My Autism Insights said...

I don't know if I'm willing to give up Jensen, Margie. But I'd be willing to share! ;-)

Fun post!

Annie said...

That last gift request would definitely keep the home fires burning!!! Is there enough of him to go around?
