Message from a Hostel – From Russia to Love, Hi Santa

Santa Claus pulled up beside the door of the shed and shouted “Ho ho ho! and what do we have here in Lapland, some fine looking strangers I see?”

“Hi Santa,  I’m Bond, James Bond, pleased to meet you Santa.”

“I know who you are my boy I remember a very little James hiding behind the doorway at Skyfall, when I was leaving a train set underneath the Christmas tree. It must be about 30 years ago. Are you still wetting the bed James?” asked Santa.

“Less of that talk Santa.  I’m all grown up now and I have a license to kill.”

As Santa looked around the inside of the shed. “Look at the little girl that got a cat woman suit for Christmas one year. You have certainly grown into a fine lady Miss Pussy Galore. Oh! I also see the little girl in the nurses outfit that I gave her one Christmas. I’m told that you are still dressing up in uniforms Miss Mary Goodnight,” said Santa.

“Well little Joe, the man from Retaine, Navan.  I certainly remember you my boy.” Santa then looked over at Hig. “Hold on a minute,” said Santa.  “Am I looking at two of the same little Joes? I don’t believe it, after all these years I knew it was you little Joe. The fact that I am looking at Joe Higgins senior and a younger Joe Higgins verifies it was you who dismantle my time travelling machine one year, when I was leaving Christmas present for little Johnny and Aggie. Even though I left you that Meccano Set you were on my Naughty List. Your Dad sent me a letter saying you were a really good lad and it was not your fault that your neighbour’s windows were all broken.

But now that I see the same two Joe Higgins standing in front of me. It could of only have being you that dismantle the time traveller. Do you know some the poor children did not get their toys until 11:00 am in the morning. Most children were crying when I arrived that same year because it took me ages to fix the machine back together again. I remember one little boy Emanuel, in Romania didn’t get his toy motor bike and he thought that I had forgot about it. He cried all morning until I arrived, then he played all day with the biggest smile.”

“Sorry about that Santa I was just feckin’ about on your sledge and petting the reindeers when you were going down the chimney. I spotted the flashing box and want to know more about it,” said Doc.

“I see you have build your own travelling machine,” said Santa. “That explains why you are here.”

“Hey Santa what am I getting this year,” asked Hig.

“Hold on until I check my ‘Naughty List’ and I will see,” replied Santa.

“You mean I’m not on the ‘Nice List,” said Hig.

Santa laughed, “you don’t make the ‘Nice List’ for a few years yet Hig. I hear they all  called you  the Hig  in the Big Smoke.”  Santa continued to laugh…” Ho ho ho!”

 To be continued….
