I stayed home today because I have a little bit of the sniffles. When Mrs. Claus asked me why I was staying home I just said I was tired. She patted my hand and said "of course dear", then sent me off to bed. When she came up she had a tray with some breakfast on it, turned the bedroom television on and gave me the remote. She made sure I was not disturbed and that I had lots of hot chocolate and chicken soup. I should have known not to try and fool her. I took several short naps, I just hadn't realized how tired I really was. I watched a couple of TV movies and some game shows. I felt so much better by dinnertime that I wanted to go to the Steakhouse. However, Mrs. Claus had other ideas and said I should stay in and fixed a fantastic dimmer. We sat by the fire and had cake and hot coco. The fire was warm, the shadows were mysterious and the romantic movie was…well romantic.
