I need me some Grinch shoes

Handwritten page of a diary dated December 11, 2009

“Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, but the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville, did not. The Grinch hated Christmas — the whole Christmas season. Oh, please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. Or maybe his head wasn’t screwed on just right.”                — Dr. Seuss

Aunt Frannie asked what I wanted for xmas and I thought I’d put these shoes on my list, but they only come in sizes for 12-year-olds and younger. If I tried to wear them, my shoes would be too tight, just like the Grinch’s. Add to that, my head is also not screwed on just right. I’m the first to admit it.

If I don’t tell Aunt Frannie something I want, she’ll end up getting me an xmas tree ornament with a sparkly fairy giving Santa a ride on her pink unicorn, or a poster for my room with kitties and bunnies frolicking together under a rainbow.
