What an orgy of unwrapping yesterday morning was! Ribbons and paper and tags everywhere. The human male received some shirts, a book, some games, a bottle of fountain pen ink (green–must remember to appropriate that), and some ginger candy. The human female received a necklace, some of the pens she likes, some books, a box of chocolate candy (which she can’t eat–oh, darn, more for me), and the human male’s nasty cold. The rest of the day was spent puttering, reading, and sleeping. Between the greedy frenzy and the laziness, the humans forgot to mention that Sigyn and I had a stocking of our own.
Today, they FINALLY remembered to tell us! And now that it is quiet (more sleeping), Sign and I are going to open it. I hope it is not socks. I have enough socks.
Here we go, Sigyn! Are you ready?
Fisi, NO! Get out of there!
Bad hyena! Drop it! Wait–I see numbers in the corner. Maybe it’s cash!
Oh. It’s just an envelope. Here, Sigyn. I shall open it with my dagger.
Well, look at that! I was not expecting a small, rubbery human-relative.
There’s another envelope–are we getting a barrel of monkeys one by one?
Ponies! Oh, Sigyn is going to love those. She’s more than a bit horse-crazy.
I opened a third envelope, only to discover two tiny gray creatures.
We are now surrounded by odd-toed ungulates.
Sigyn–do you see something else in there?
A rubbery neon dinosaur! We can add it to our growing herd.
Odin’s eyepatch–there’s another one!
And two more, as well as some trucks for me!
Vroom, vroom! Beep, beep! Crash! Augh!
Fisi! What has that fleabitten menace got now? Drop it! Drop the bunny, Fisi!
Bad hyena! Got get in your crate! Crate, Fisi! Don’t worry, Sigyn, the bunny is unharmed.
Though you may want to keep an eye on that fox… I can practically see the thought-bubble that says, “Yule dinner” hovering over its head as it gazes at that rabbit…
Sigyn is quite happy, playing with all the new members of her menagerie.
Me, I’m off to see if a) the humans have gobbled up all the cookies already,
b) the human female’s mother sent cash again this year…
