After running almost 10.5 miles this morning – I thought it would be a GREAT idea to wait in line at the mall to see Santa. No big deal, right? Wellllll….there was a HUGE line. The sign, theme-park style, said the wait would be 3.5 hours long. We’ve gone to see Santa a this mall for the past 5 Christmas seasons and they are usually SPOT ON with their estimates. Wowzers.
The hubby looked at me like I was bonkers and I had to talk him into waiting. Part of the deal was that I had to take the kids to lunch while he waited (no easy feat).
Luckily, the threat of NOT seeing Santa Clause (and therefore letting him know they were being bad) is very powerful. The kids were great and the wait was ONLY 2 hours. ONLY.
Totally worth it…
Back back later this week with my FINAL Vegas recap (the hotels!) and new goals for running and all that junk.
Off to enjoy my work holiday party tonight – can’t wait!
What’s the craziest thing you’ve done during the holidays? Would you have waited in line for 3.5 hours?
