Christmas Moments---Part 4

Listening to Diggy’s creative requests from Santa is a huge highlight each Christmas. Two years ago, he asked for tape. Confused, Santa said, “Which one?” thinking this poor child came from one of those stone-age families with parents who hadn’t made the transition from VHS to DVD (which is true, in fact, he has parents who have hardly made the transition TO VHS). Diggy returned the confused look, and Mom had to jump in to interpret, “He means the kind of tape you use to stick 2 things together.”

Last year when Diggy climbed on Santa’s knee, he announced he wanted Santa and his reindeer. This Santa quickly and happily responded, “Well, Santa WILL be at your house. What do you want me to bring you?” Diggy clarified, “I want you to bring me my own toy Santa riding in a sleigh with 9 reindeer.”

So this year, Diggy surprised us again.

After watching the cartoon version of “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” just before visiting Santa this year, Diggy decided to spontaneously change his wish list and daringly ask for an electro-Who-cardio-shnooks (a creative, Dr. Seuss-looking gadget). And sensing that his request was a little outlandish, Diggy also asked for Bendaroos to be sure he’d actually get something.

Bendaroos?! you ask? Yes, of course Santa knows what Bendaroos are. He knows everything. And after never hearing of these before, we quickly learned that Santa better jump right on that request because Bendaroos are an “As seen on TV” special that can only be obtained via the Bendaroos web site and take 4-6 weeks to deliver…unless you pay for rush shipping (cha-ching, cha-ching) or have elves working for you, of course. If Santa delivers, Diggy will be pleased, because Bendaroos will entertain him for hours…perhaps he’ll make an electro-Who-cardio-shnooks.
