I sat in my study making final preparations for the big night and my amazing cross the world flight. I know the elves and the special Santas reindeer make it look easy but it takes a lot of planning. Like I always say a minute of planning saves ten minutes of trouble. I heard a knock on my door.
“It’s always open!” I shouted.
Clumsy, Grumpy and e-elf Jingles walked in. “Ah, Santa…” Clumsy said slowly. “Perhaps you are aware that our e-reindeer failed…”
“Epically. It was a truly epic fail,” Grumpy said. “The kids were afraid it would blow up and well it didn’t blow up but it melted into a pile of robot mush…”
I nodded. “Yes, I’m aware. Not all ideas are good ones. Still it’s nice you wanted to help Santas reindeer. I’m sure they’ll appreciate it.”
“We felt bad for letting you, the kids and the reindeer down,” Clumsy said.
“So we decided to invent something else,” Jingles said. Jingles nudged Grumpy.
Grumpy shot him a look. “What?”
Jingles whispered to him. “You have the thing…”
“Oh right,” Grumpy said. He pulled out a small green and red cloth from his pocket. He unfolded the cloth and shook it out to full length.
Santas Reindeer Solution
“Ta da!” Clumsy said.
“It’s a pretty cloth,” I admitted.
Jingles stepped forward gently taking the cloth from Grumpy and handing it to me. “Oh it’s so much more than that. It’s actually a smart adjustable reindeer cover or as we call it an SARC. It adjusts to any of Santas reindeer it also reacts to the weather keeping them cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold.”
Clumsy moved forward, tripped over his own foot caught himself and add, “Plus it glows if you need it to!”
I smiled at my elves. “I think you guys might have a helpful device there!”
