Dear Santa.... What an English teacher wants for Christmas....
Oh, thanks for asking, by the way. Yuletide is here, indeed.
Being a teacher is a helping and giving vocation so, Santa, let me give you a helping hand and assist you with this Christmas deal. Humans are inclined to think that the grass is always greener on the other side, so here I am, let me walk in your shoes for a day. To guarantee that I will not let you down and that your «business» is in good hands, I hereby provide an agenda for my, sorry, your Christmas.
My first destination would be Great Britain (no offence), as I have always wanted to experience what it feels like to be a cheerful old man with a beard, whose epic descend down the chimney is so much sought after. I would arrive as expected, enjoy all that brandy and mince pies left for me, dump the presents in full accordance with The List and, jolly and gay, continue my journey.
The world can be enjoyable from multiple perspectives so, I would also like to be «a secret elf» and get some hand-on experience in your workshop. Remember that time when elves were on strike? Well, I would like to make sure that they are satisfied with their working and sleeping quarters, that they take good care of their reindeer and have parking spaces for them and that all those free meals and hot chocolate breaks are provided. After all, they need to instill positive vibe into their produce.
Speaking of reindeer, I would let Comet, Vixen, Donner, Cupid, Dancer, Prancer, Dasher and Blitzen know that they get to be Rudolph one day a week (red noses provided, of course). This will take extra pressure off and promote the team spirit in the herd.
All the abovementioned activities will whet my appetite so I will proceed to the US. Milk and cookies, Yum yum.
I kind of understand that you will think twice whether to visit me or not this year. I mean, if you know that someone wants to be you, would you still go there?...
But, seriously, a partridge in a pear tree: there is a common preconception about Ms Universe contestants but now I see all the wisdom behind their answers to the question «What is it that you want most of all?». So, allow me to lend this and ask for WORLD PEACE. You can easily disregard everything written above and just give us all some peace of mind and belief in the future.
