But Santa was watching me. Or at least someone in a Santa suit. Would sit outside my window all night. It was kind of creepy for the first oh, year or so. He knew a lot though and I had no idea when you were supposed to leave milk and cookies for Santa that it was really a euphamism. I was a good kid that year. And the next.
