Every year Canada Post runs an incredible program that is manned and operated by volunteers.

In the months leading up to Christmas children can send their letters to the North Pole and Santa will write back.

Of course “Santa” is probably a fifty seven year old retired female accountant but it doesn’t matter.

The whole thing is magical.

Occasionally I like to spice up my sister’s life by sending her ridiculous things in the mail.

Sometimes it’s a drawing.

This hangs on the fridge next to a mosaic made by our five year old cousin.

Those are my mother’s abs by the way,

not an homage to snakes on her stomach. I’m in the middle.

Sometimes it’s an awkward valentine professing my love for her roommate.

Recently, I’ve felt the need to step it up a notch.

So I decided to write to Santa on her behalf.

We’ll see whether Santa writes back.

Dear Santa,

Lookin’ hot. I’m loving the black belt that you wear. So trendy.

 Last year you were awesome by the way.

I loved how all of the clothes you brought me also fit my sister

which was fabulous because

when I gave them to her,

she found them very wearable.

For this year I would like clothes again

however as always I’m a little picky.

I would like a very specific garment- a bee keeper hat.

Just the hat.

Not the outfit, and preferably in beige.

Living in the downtown of a metropolis can get kind of boring

so I’d like to spice things up by plopping

the bee keeper mask and hat on my head

and then wandering through the streets

pretending I’m in the middle of a

post apocalypse movie.

Also if you could bring me a guy

who looks like Will Smith

to help me out with the whole charade

I’d appreciate it too.

Don’t get too stressed

about bringing me the actual Will Smith,

I know you’ve got a budget.

I’d also like whoever you bring me

to be able to juggle.

There is never enough juggling

in post apocalyptic alien war movies.

Much love,


I should probably add that

Diana and Phillip are very happy together and

to my knowledge Diana has never expressed

an interest in Will Smith

or Will Smith lookalikes.

I merely was drawing from my meager well

of post apocalyptic movies

which consists of “Men in Black”.

Also I once saw a poster for “I Am legend”.

Generally I don’t watch movies

because that would requires for sitting

for a period greater than ten minutes.

*Names of Diana’s boyfriend’s

have been changed to protect their anonymity

because they never asked to be a part of a family

with a weirdo writer.

drawing of people in Hawaii

What a fantastic concept! :)
