I’m a good kid. Promise.

To that

jolly old man:


if you can.

Here is

the deal you see,

I have

been good as can be.

Trust me.

Do not

worry about a background check.

I have

not raised any heck

since September.

Maybe October.

It could have been November.

Okay, since today at three.

But that

was not my fault, see?

So do

not listen to the others


not my mother.

I swear

I have been good –

just like

a good kid should!

  1. Oh – don’t you have mince pies? You must have mince pies!!! 😯 Unless you call them something else? Here’s one cooked. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-kAYOVgva480/TqF2htBc0tI/AAAAAAAAAY8/DvdSCNidgd0/s1600/Mince+Pies%2521+.jpg And here’s one before cooking. http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02416/RosePrinceMincePie_2416668b.jpg This one is a fresh traditional mince pie filling, but most people haven’t got the time to make their own filling, they just buy it in jars like jam – sorry – jelly!! 😉 Christmas isn’t Christmas unless you have a mince pie! And a little bit of turkey – and a Christmas Cracker – and all the rest! 😀

  2. Ah, see, I’m not big on sweets. So, the pictures you sent me, uh, don’t look appetizing or tempting at all. But that’s just me – I’m a bit odd like that. 🙂

  3. You could do a savoury version using ground beef (we call it mince beef) but that’s not traditional at all! I actually remember some like that an aunt of mine made while I was staying with her over Christmas in my early 20’s. I’d come back late at night having been out with my cousins, had experienced my first two drinks of Vodka that evening and was slightly abnormally merry, and VERY hungry. I found what I thought was fruit mince pies in the fridge, and layered one with squirty cream – ugh…. it was pretty foul with the beef flavour. That was last time I ever drank Vodka – altered my personality too much – not for me that – and neither were those beef mince pies!! 😀

  4. Ok, the beef version sounds even grosser 🙂 But my sister sat down eating a snack from one of the plates of goodies we received from friends and lo and behold! It looked just like the picture you sent. I asked her what she was eating. She had no idea but she said the inside was filled with fruit. Maybe we do have mince pies here! I’m just not a big sweet eater so I have no idea what kind of goodies we get 🙂 Haha! Funny 😀
