When out of nowhere in my dreams, arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see who won the TAAFOMFT challenge . Away to the computer I flew like a flash, tore open the keyboard and threw up the mouse.
The moon on the breast of the newly turned on computer screen, gave the luster of mid-day to objects, when, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh, and twelve tiny designers,
with a little driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be Julie. More rapid than eagles her coursers they came, and she whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
"Now, Deana! now, Amy! now, Bekka and Chris! On, Jeanet! on Hanneke! on, Jamie, Sarah Georgia, Jenneke and Lisa! Create! Design! Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"
They spoke not a word, but went straight to their work. They were busy deciding on who should win the next challenge when all of a sudden Julie sprang to the sleigh, to her team gave a whistle, and away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard her exclaim, as she drove out of sight,"HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!"
So when I woke this morning and found it was the 14th, I knew it was a dream and still had time to enter, in hopes I might win. I think by now it is obvious that Christmas is my favorite holiday!
