Well it’s finally December and my Christmas reindeer are really getting excited. Things here at the North Pole are ho ho ho humming along. It won’t be long now until my Christmas reindeer and I make that joyous trip around the world to bring gifts to all the good little girls and boys. In fact, it’s crunch time here with everybody chipping in and working away.
This morning, I sat in my office scanning my computer going over the Nice List one more time. I had to make sure I didn’t leave anybody off. Plus I always like to give kids the benefit of the doubt. I truly believe most kids love being nice. After all being nice to others makes your feel nice about yourself. Looking over the list I said, “hmmm, it seems like Felipe, Markie, Julie and Jane have been especially good this year.”
I heard a knock on my door: rap rap.
“Come in,” I said. “You know my door is always open.”
I smiled as Clumsy, Grumpy and our e-elf Jingles slowly walked into my office. I had no idea what those three were up to. But, from the twinkle in Clumsy’s eyes, I thought it was going to be good. “How can I help you?” I asked.
Jingles jumped forward. “Actually, Santa sir, it’s how can we help you?”
Clumsy bounced up and down, barely able to contain himself. “Big guy, you’re going to LOVE this!”
“I’m intrigued,” I said.
Christmas Reindeer 2.0!
Clumsy nudged Grumpy. “Show him.”
“I will, I will!” Grumpy growled. Grumpy pulled out a scroll from his pocket and unrolled it. I put on my glasses and read it.
“It says plans for a Christmas reindeer,” I said. Looking carefully at the piece of paper the three elves had a complete design of a mechanical reindeer. “This looks amazing!” I said.
“Yes, sir, we realize the other Christmas reindeer do an amazing job flying all over the world and all, but we thought they could use a backup. A robotic-e-reindeer that you can keep on-board and unwind if you need it. This e-reindeer can give one of the others a nice break.”
“That’s an interesting idea…” I said.
“So should we build it?” Clumsy asked me.
Well kids what do you think? Should I add a flying robotic Christmas reindeer to my stables? Or maybe I shouldn’t?
