Xmastime Hedge Mail

Jess was 12 and Tom was 8 and even though they would (sort of) believe me when I would say: “Err on the side of spoiling your Mom n Dad, and listening to your Mom n Dad if you want Xmas gifts”, they felt they would hedge their bets and write to Santa as well.

Off they toddled up the road to the PnP centre with Janet to post their petitions in the big red letter box.

Jess had given me a copy of hers. It said “Please may I have . . “ before each and every separate request. Extreme politeness was evident.

Tom’s envelope was addressed to Father C. Jess thought it would be better to address hers to Santa C – more formal (Janet helped with the spelling).

All together now they shoved them through the slot and turned to go.
After two paces, Tom swung round, looked hard at the slot and said sternly:  “Read them, OK?”
