As i was driving out of town to Galveston,, I stopped at a light , right next to a Santa who was advertising a smoothie king ( should have been a milk and Mrs Fields shop ) . He was'nt your average Santa , really quite small and not an ounce of fat ( dissapointed ) It was a complete spontaneous moment , I parked , crossed the street and slipped Santa a twenty . I said 'thank you Santa '' and we both smiled . It was such a magical moment and so quick . Just felt great to give a Santa a gift instead of receiving one . He was a bit shocked but very happy and it was great to be a magical elf . There;s always an oppertunity to give but its so much fun when it's a surprise . Look for the chance to be an elf , all through the year .
