My yearly interview with Santa Claus on Christmas week.
The phone was busy — it took me a few times — but I got through to Santa Claus at the North Pole. One of the elves answered and told me that Santa was running on his treadmill, getting ready for his journey to the rest of the world on Christmas Eve as he delivers all the presents. Santa wanted to be in shape. The elves told me that Santa was listening to Christmas music on his iPod, wearing his red sweatpants and sweatshirt. As I waited, Santa called me back.
