Dear Santa ...

[Cleaning out some old boxes, I just found this note in my mom’s handwriting that I dictated when I was seven.]

Dear Santa Claus,

I want you to come here to Christmas. How are you doing? I’m fine.

I want a Mickey Mouse clock and a Minnie Mouse switch, cowboy clothes, some candy, more plastic people, a dinosaur, a rubber spaceship, a large rubber man, new slippers, a large smurf set or elf set, rubber alligator, spider and snake.

Thank you. That’s all I want!

p.s. I would also like an electric motorcycle to ride outside.
