Christmas Story - My Penguin Osbert

This is a cute story. And no, it doesn't make me cry.

This is a fun, be-careful-what-you-wish-for kind of story. Yet also a heartwarming, you've-made-your-bed-now-you-get-to-lie-in-it kind of story.

Joe writes his Christmas letter to Santa each year and tries to be very specific. Last year he asked for a fire-engine red race car with a detachable roof, a lightening bolt on the side, and retractable head lights. And he did get one. But it was only three inches long.

So this year he was really really careful, and as specific as he could possibly be. And he got exactly what he asked for.
