Greed is Good

December 20th, 2011  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  3 Comments

Dear Readers: To celebrate the avarice of children and the holiday season, we are calling for you to submit your own Dear Santa letters (you can send them to tips@dadwagon.com). Give us a first name and a hometown and we’ll be sure Santa knows all about how good/greedy your children are. I’m kicking it off with my own daughter’s missive (spoiler: she’s been pretty good, but she’s not getting all of that).

    LOL, I love when you guys crack me up in the middle of my work day. Dude, that is NOTHING. I wish I could post my sweet, greedy daughter’s greedy little list, but I literally put it in the mailbox. (I wonder what the post office does with all those non-stamped letters to the north pole…) Anyway, there were no fewer than 10 things in that letter, and after reading it, I told her she’d better let him know what her Top Three items are, because, “you know, Santa doesn’t bring EVERYTHING….”

    All my 5 year old wants is more bus timetables…

    @Jill: Ten items seems pretty ambitious. Maybe she’s really been an awesome girl this year?
    @Ian: How Dickensian.
