Here is an entry from some anonymous someone who is!

Literati! 

Here’s hoping your stockings are well-hung this year:

***

My sister and I were discussing Christmas. She told me that she wanted a camera and clothes for Christmas.

I said,” All I want for Christmas is The Shop King. Have you seen the commercial for it?”

“No,” she replied.

“It is so cool! It has tools, just like Dad’s, only smaller, for kids.”

“You mean, for boys”, she shot back. “Good luck on getting that!”

She just voiced my biggest fear. I wouldn’t get it because I’m a girl. I wanted it more than I had ever wanted anything. The things I could build!

I lost out, again.

    Great story.I wanted a gun and holsters and boots and a horse. I totally understand where you are coming from. I let my son carry around a baby doll for the longest time. He really loved babies. Then on his own he traded off for shotguns and pirate weapons,peg leg, eye patch, gold…I think he buried the baby.

    Gotta remember the GI Joe – the politically correct ‘Action Figure’ for Daddy’s little closet queen. What a screwed up society we are.   But I digress……Love your story and thanks for standing up and saying what needed saying. It’s Christmas!
