In Other Words, elf…

It’s a little daunting when you go shopping and are served by a six foot two Elf.
Such is the Christmas Spirit in the supermarket and I wonder if they draw costume lots.
I suppose it beats a row of Santas who would be forever getting their beards trapped in the till.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    haha Sounds like fun! The most we get here is the poor supermarket staff wearing Santa hats – which you can imagine is the last thing you want to wear here on a hot summer’s day! 🙂

    Ha…sounds like a lot of fun and there’s no escaping it is there, I’m so glad I am not in the lines to have my child’s photo taken with Santa.

    • My late FIL played Santa to the kids at the community centre. I offered to let him practice by letting me sit on his knee. At my heaviest of 18 and a half stone at the time, he said no chance, he’d sit on mine!

    I would say at 6’2 that elf is an imposter! But what fun to see! Thanks for sharing this week. Made me smile.

  4. Will Ferrell is 6’3″. He was an awesome elf! This is a cute post. I enjoyed it. Hugs!
