Michael, a fantastic yet sad piece of writing.
I'm sorry but my dirty mind had to laugh at Santa's sack sticking out further than he had originally thought, oops.. Wine doesn't help either. Lol. Those poor elves.
I'm torn between interpreting this as a humorous write, or a distressing write. I really enjoyed both perspectives, but I think I might be just a partial to the humorous perspective, with santa's bulging sack lol. Great write!
