WAITING FOR SANTA
This week's Friday Fictioneer's photo prompt comes courtesy of Scott L. Vannatter. Below is my 100-word story inspired by Scott's adorable photo. (12/21/12).
**** WAITING FOR SANTA ****
I watched them circle pictures in the Toys-R-Us catalog. A Yankee jacket and a Giants Helmet for Buddy. A pink tutu and Ballerina Barbi for Sally. A catnip mouse for me. Excited, they collected pictures for their wish list and hung red stockings. Homemade cookies and milk sat on the table. But Santa never came. Sally thought he got stuck in the chimney. Buddy said Santa probably emptied his toy sack for the kids in the fancy houses where he got his belly full of rich cocoa and honey-glazed tarts. Since Santa never came, Buddy and Sally ate the cookies, I drank the milk.
