I went back to the workshop last night as I said I was going to do. I couldn’t get the penguins out of my mind. Every time I pictured those smiling faces, and those tapping little flippers I had to chuckle. Those cute little penguins hardly ever missed a beat. Mrs. Claus and I laughed and applauded all evening long. A very nice evening indeed.
I took a walk to the café this morning because I needed a break, I also needed food! I didn’t bring any snacks with me last night so I was pretty hungry. Guess who came passed me on my way to the café. Yep, you guessed it; a class of penguins on their way from their school to the present shop to choose a fine gift for each of them because they had done such a marvelous job at the recital. Do you know that they really do march in those straight lines? The only difference this morning was the little ones who were in the show last night were dancing their way to the store. I think somewhere along the way their parents gave up asking them to walk straight.
I had a big breakfast, and went back to the workshop. As I got back to my desk Fluffy-Paws was putting another stack of orders on it. Once I was finished the stack I went down to the workshop floor to find Jingles. I needed to make sure everything was in order before I went home. Mrs. Claus had dinner ready when I walked through the door. I thought she had made a pretty good guess at what time I would be home but she said she had called the workshop to see when I was coming home and DarkCrystal had answered and said I was just shutting the door closed behind me. We talked for a little while and I came up to get ready for bed. Mrs. Claus reminded me that I needed to try on my good suit again to make sure nothing needed to be done to it before it was cleaned and the boots and belt polished. Now all is done that needed to be done today so I am off to bed.
The answer to yesterday’s SantaSearch Hunt is:
True. The elves try very hard to remind me not to let my email get too clogged up.
What country started the tradition of exchanging gifts?
