What do you call Santa's Little Helpers?
Subordinate clauses! (boom, boom) A friend told me this earlier today - sorry but had to pass it on.
Another friend told of the little boy who asked his friend about the devil. Was there really a devil?
'No', he replied. 'He's like Santa Claus - he's your Dad!'
It was our Strugglers meeting this morning, when a group of us - nine this morning - meet for an hour and a half to talk quietly about anything which may be worrying us, or anything we feel might be of interest to the group.
This morning we got talking about the amount of money which is spent on some children while there are other children around who have virtually nothing (desperate children who are refugees or live in countries torn apart by war for example). The discussion eventually turned to talk about believing in Santa Claus. We all had memories of believing but no-one could actually remember the time when they suddenly knew there was no such person (come on Tom - don't kid me you still believe and I have ruined it for you). So I am asking you - did we really believe in him and his magic or did we only half believe?
