    How Did I Let This Happen To Myself, Again?

    Regulars to this forum will remember my rant from about this time a couple of years ago, and the same thing has happened, again.

    I have been drafted (or volunteered) to be Santa Claus at our company's kiddie Christmas party.

    Me, the childless gruff old fart whose favourite joke is that children are wonderful, depending how you cook them.

    Everyone here says I'm the best Santa they've ever had, entertaining both the ankle biters, and the adults.

    Oh well, time to take one for the team. Thankfully no one I work with is on this forum so there will be no photographic evidence to share with you all.

    It's on for tomorrow night, wish me luck!

    Good Luck!

    It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it!

    It's ok Gunny, you are probably so good at it there will be no other to do your work! I say go for it.

    Take it a step further and get a gig at the local mall or department store. Then go buy a new gun or two.

    Oh you're just a teddy bear, you talk tough but you couldn't hurt a fly. They've got you pegged.

    Have fun, the benefit is you can spoil those kids and send them home with someone else to enjoy the crash.

    You're playing Santa Claus?

    Are you insinuating that there IS no real Santa?

    Who drinks the milk and takes a bite from the cookies we leave out for him if there is no real Santa?

    Who fills my stocking up with lumps of coal every year?
