My brain hasn't been working lately. At least not for lengthy thoughts. Hence, the bullet style posts of the past couple days. Apologies.
*I believed in Santa Claus, really and truly believed, until I was ten years old. I WAS A FIFTH GRADER! THAT IS OLD! I never questioned the logic of thousands of elves making plastic crap in the arctic tundra. I clung to my belief despite the wise-ass ways of all of my schoolmates because I knew that (a) my mom would never lie to me, and (b) if Santa wasn't real, my sister would have ruined it for me as soon as she found out. Like how she told me about sex when I was three. Thanks for that Laura. Also, Santa used special different wrapping paper that my parents never had. I had asked my mom about it before, and she was all, "Of course there's a Santa." Of course she doesn't lie to me, so of course I believed her. In fifth grade, when I found the stocking stuffers whilst snooping through my parents' closet looking for prezzies, I was shocked. I confronted my mom. She laughed at me. Laughed at me. More importantly, my sister found out there was no Santa in Kindergarten, because she asked my mom, and my mom told her. And neither one ever told me?? Innocence died that day.
*In my family, Santa brought you your stocking. El fin. Everything else was from real live people who were there that day. In K.Dot's family, Santa brought the biggest, most important toy, unwrapped under the tree, and they didn't really do stockings. This is presenting a conflict for Gabriel's Christmas.
*A couple weeks ago, K.Dot took Gabriel to see Santa in the mall. Gabriel asked him for a Spider-Man bike and a cookie. Well. K.Dot says that Gabriel asked for a Spider-Man bike, and Santa asked for a cookie, but that's not how Gabey remembers it. As of today, the cookie is at least as important as the bike.
Also, completely unrelated, I wanted to clarify that I'm not having any impotence issues with my uncompleted life list. It's a life list, and I don't plan on dying anytime soon. Also, I HAVE done cool stuff that I'm proud of, but I made this list since then, and I don't believe in writing something down just so I can cross it off, yknow?
