Superb! Fun story, good writing, a great capture of a believable scene in the life of Santa. Well done!
Good writing, but Santa enthralled with a James Bond movie marathon more than delivering "goodies" to children was too radical for me. :]

Sensational writing. A cheeky hook, a gentle unfurling of the hints, a delightful tease and an unexpected reason for staying home. Fantastic! And just for the record, I loved the sheer daftness of the James Bond connection - fitted perfectly with the tone.
Of course you don't have to wait until Christmas Eve to spread a little cheer around - we all love to receive comments from others on FW at any time the year.

I just LOVED your opening line! I defy anyone not to read a story that starts like that. Well done indeed.

This was very good, and very funny. I could totally relate with wanting to strangle her husband. I'll be looking forward to seeing you in the advanced level next week. Congrats!

Loved the intro.... or was it meant to be a private little "choke" among friends?
