I Met Santa and He Fixed My Car

1.1260913761.santa-claus-repairing-his-carToday I met Santa and he fixed my car.

The car came first. I had the battery replaced a few days ago, and I made the mistake of not driving immediately afterwards, so the car didn’t start today when I got in it. I called AAA, and they dispatched a mechanic.

That repairman turned out to be none other than Santa. Of the Claus family. He drove a truck, not a sleigh, but there was no mistaking him. Older man, slightly rotund, white hair, white beard, twinkle in his eyes. Santa Claus.

As he attached some equipment to the battery, he talked about the weather that week (of course Santa pays attention to the weather). He also mentioned that it was nice that he had Christmas week “off work” at AAA during a big rainstorm in St. Louis. Sure you did, Santa. Because you had other things to take care of on Christmas. I get it.

After he jumped my car and we let it run for a few minutes, Santa assured me the car would drive just fine from then on. I thanked him, and he drove off.

I know, you’re probably thinking, “Jamey, you mean that the mechanic looked like Santa, right?” Of course he looked like Santa. That’s what Santa looks like.

Thanks, Santa. The car works great now!

  1. Twinkle! I meant twinkle! 🙂

    I swear, I looked at that word for several minutes after I typed it. Something seemed wrong about it, but the more I said it, the more I was like, “Yeah, tinkle, that’s what I’m trying to say here.”

  2. My uncle looks a lot like Santa. He’ll have children come up to him in restaurants and tell him what they want for Christmas. He just plays along and tells them to be good and he’ll see what he can do.

    When Charlotte was old enough to understand who Santa was, he showed up that Christmas wearing a Santa hat and her eyes got HUGE when she saw him. I think she honestly believed that Santa was a member of her family for a while!
