I received this cheerful sentiment from my 91 year old grandmother last Christmas and have saved it all year just for you.
If I were Santa is a cheerful sentiment I received from my 91 year old grandmother last Christmas and I have saved it all year just to share it with you this Christmas season. I am not certain who the original author is, but this will make you smile.
If I were Santa, you know what I’d do?
I’d dump silly gifts that are given to you
And deliver some things just inside your front door
Things you have lost, but treasured before.
I’d give you back all your maidenly vigor,
And to go along with it, a neat tiny figure.
Then restore the old color that once graced your hair
Before rinses and bleaches took residence there.
I’d bring back the shape with which you were gifted
So things now suspended need not be uplifted.
I’d draw in your tummy and smooth down your back
Till you’d be a dream in those tight fitting slacks.
I’d remove all your wrinkles and leave only one chin
So you wouldn’t spend hours rubbing grease on your skin
You’d never have flashes or queer dizzy spells
And you wouldn’t hear noises like ringing of bells.
No sore aching feet and no corns on your toes
No searching for spectacles when they’re right on your nose
Not a shot would you take in your arm, hip or fanny
From a doctor who thinks you’re a nervous old granny.
You’d never have a headache, so no pills would you take.
And no heating pad needed since your muscles won’t ache
Yes, if I were Santa, you’d never look stupid
You’d be a cute little chick with the romance of a cupid.
I’d give a lift to your heart when those wolves start to whistle
And the joys of your heart would be light as a thistle.
But alas! I’m not Santa.I’m simply just me
The matronest of matrons you ever did see.
I wish I could tell you all the symptoms I’ve got
But I’m due at my doctor’s for an estrogen shot.
Even though we’ve grown older this wish is sincere
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.
