Santa Problems

I posted this a year ago today. It’s seasonal – sort of – so I thought I’d give it another airing for those who haven’t seen it before 🎅

Take It Easy

[I once posted a Christmas-themed piece of (exactly – count them!) 100 word flash fiction – The First Coming – and thought I’d try it again.]

The reindeer had let him down: after too much Christmas spirit tasting they were donnered and blitzened. It’s why Rudolph’s nose is red – like Alex Ferguson’s.

He only worked one night a year: this could get him sacked! Without reindeer he was going to have to charter loads of flights. He managed to make bookings, and after taking the park’n’ride (200 miles away from the airport) his CheapoAir flight awaited.

Then he saw the huge guy at the desk, menacingly flexing a pair of latex gloves: “Did you pack these bags yourself, sir?”

“My elves did. I’m buggered, aren’t I?”

    I needed a smile about now. Thanks for your wry (rye?) sense of humor. I’ll never hear of Rudolph’s red nose in the same way again.

      You’re welcome, Janet. It seems a fair explanation to me 😉
