Dear Santa,

I hope your night of traveling is going amazingly well and that you are able to return home in the morning to your wife at the North Pole safe and sound. Santa, I think I have been a good boy this year and I am asking for pens. I can’t seem to find one when I need them. Why do they always end up missing? If you can hook me up with the good kind and not the cheap Bic pens, you will be my hero. Santa, I had this whole letter planned but I changed my mind as to what it was going to say. The year 2013, has been a rough one for me. I have had to deal with stress that no person should ever have to go through. I lost my mom this year Santa. I am not dealing with it very well. I miss her and I guess it can be said that it is only natural to miss someone you lost but it doesn’t make it easier. I know she is in a better place but is there any way you can fix the pain with losing a loved one. I know peace of mind is something that you can’t put a bow on and call it good. If you have anything, please send it my way. The major upside this year is that I married an amazing woman. I am so proud to call her my wife. I am still so new to all of this, can you bring the courage and the strength to show her that I can be everything that she needs in life. I love that woman with all my heart and want to show her what I can do. By the way, if you want to throw in something for my step-daughter, I am all for it. I think she may want a sonic screwdriver from Doctor Who. Finally, Santa, my health has become really bad over the year. I have only gone to the doctor twice because I am afraid of the news that I am going to get. I want to be able to wake up tomorrow and see the things that life has presented me but I am scared that may not happen. I am scared the knot in the back of head is going to burst any day. If there is any way you can make that go away without surgery, it would mean the world to my family and me. I know it is a long shot but a guy can try. I may be 29 years old but I know one thing, all I have to do is believe.

About the author

Richard Pruitt

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
