All Aboard!

Gina and I love volunteering to help with Santa’s train displays at Look Park. As the conductor, here’s my annual schtick: Elves give visiting children a magic ticket. I then question the validity of the ticket before punching it. Did they get this ticket from a reputable source? There has been a ring of elves running counterfeit tickets, after all. Then I punch a few dozen holes in their ticket, leaving behind a pile of confetti, and tell the kids that Santa has been patiently waiting for them...
It’s a good gig.
