I got my child’s letter from New York Cares and just what I feared might happen is happening—I can’t find what the child wants. [Backstory: New York Cares has a program called Winter Wishes where you get a child’s letter to Santa and agree to buy the gifts.] I went all the way up to Toys R Us in Times Square, the biggest toy store I think, but no go. I got his first choice gift though, so it’s not the end of the world. I have a few places to try this afternoon.
Here’s a picture of the scary Toys R Us monster who skulks around in the doorway. If I was a kid I’d run screaming from this thing. It’s like seven feet tall. And orange.
