Christmas List!

Oh boy! It is time to make my Christmas list again! I am always so excited around this time. I am going to give a copy to my Mom, and Téodor, and Mr. Bear, and Ray, and Roast Beef, and to Chris!

This is some of the stuff I want this year!

1. Tyco trigger-car race track with 25 interchangeable track sections.

2. Mr. Carpenter: a small sawmill that cuts tongue-depressor size boards into whatever shape you want! You can make a ship or a house or whatever! Glue included.

3. Bathroom spray plus bathroom candle. Lyle is getting pretty bad lately.

Bad lunch.

For lunch today I asked Téodor to make me Taquitos, which are a crispy little tortilla rolled around tasty beef. There is a big bag of them in the freezer and you can heat them up on a baking sheet in the oven. He said that was not a very good lunch but that he would make it for me if I really wanted. I did really want that so he baked them, but then he played a trick on me. When the Taquitos were all done cooking, he put them all on a plate, but then he took one of them and unrolled it and let the beef fall out in the middle of a different plate all by itself. Then he gave me that one plate and said that if I could eat the alone beef, then I could have the rest. I would have eaten it but he pointed out how the beef looked like something you would find in a litterbox and could I imagine it coming out of a cat's butt.

I imagined that and then I didn't want to eat any of them. Instead, I went and practiced riding my tricycle as close to the edge of the patio as I could without falling into the grass.

I am not president.

Téodor told me the truth about what happened when everybody voted. I am not sad, because he explained about how presidents have to be at least thirty-five and they have to be married. No wonder everybody didn't vote for me! They would have gotten arrested! Thank you to Téodor for explaining that. I'm glad *I* didn't get arrested! Phew.

I went to Ray's house to apologize for not winning and he said that it was not a big deal, and then something about "tax write offs"? He was kind of busy watching his TV shows so I didn't ask him what that meant.

Anyhow, I guess it is pretty good to be off the campaign trail. I don't have to wear uncomfortable shirts any more and think about different country relationships and all that hard stuff. Téodor said he would make me coconut-chocolate chip pancakes tomorrow with caramel bananas and maple syrup! I bet the president doesn't even get a breakfast that good!!

I love you.
