It was quite by chance.
Banana-man and I were leaving his favorite restaurant, McD’s, after a late breakfast and there was Santa!
He was ‘blending in’ as best he could; no reindeer, no sleigh, he’d swapped it temporarily for a silver-bells colored 4 door, energy-efficient car. The red suit glimmered in the sunshine, but it was his snow-white beard that really caught our eye – it sparkled!
We were thrilled, but politely kept away, after all he’s incredibly busy at this time of year and we didn’t want to slow him down.
This year, we’ll be leaving a McDonald’s gift card by the milk and cookies.
