Dear Santa – Jimmy: Brunswick NJ

0 Comments 07 December 2012

Dear Santa,

Jimmy Conway here. You might remember me from my mom’s oatmeal chocolate chip cookies last year. The green house on Belt Rustle Lane?

I’m a first time writer but a big time fan. I never wrote in because you always did such a great job every year. Like back in ‘09 – man you nailed it with Donkey Kong: Extreme Jungle Bonanza Extravaganza for XBOX. I didn’t even know it was out yet! But you did, and I had a heck of a time playing it and snacking.

Anyways I decided to write this year because I have an odd request that I’m sure you don’t get all the time and I wanted to make sure you get it right. I just want this one thing – a new friend.

My mom’s been making me eat vegetables for the past three months because she said I’m ‘huskier’ than the other kids. Get this, last Tuesday she basically shoved brussel sprouts down my throat with a wooden spoon. I almost choked. It was pretty awful. Yea.

The problem is all these awful veggies make me toot all the time. And it stinks. Like really smells bad. And now none of my friends even want to be around me. On the playground, in the cloakroom, at cub scout meetings etc. Its no big deal really, I just need a new one. I’m not picky either. Just let him have a pair of sneakers and please, please, please don’t let him throw like a girl.

Well maybe I’ll see you on christmas. This new diet has me up all hours of the night running to the bathroom. So, I’ll see you when I see you.
