Santa Flaws #1 - Misgivings

Yule tidings...

Santa always got it wrong. When my Christmas list clearly specified G.I. Joe, he brought me Sergeant Dan. I asked for Lincoln Logs, but Saint Nick delivered Hamilton Blocks instead.

This cruel yule tradition continued into my teens. Instead of "Rubber Soul" Santa gave me "Wayne Newton Sings the Beatles." And even though I specified "English Leather," I received Avon's "Wild Country."
Santa isn't very particular about what he puts in his bag. An elf brings the boss a cheap knock-off and Santa says, "Close enough."  This year I am hoping for the latest iPad, but I wouldn't be surprised to get an Etch-A-Sketch.

Next Friday - Santa Flaws #2 - "To buy for"
