As I was snapping a photo of this elk, the following story (from the elk’s perspective) popped into my head.
Several months ago, I interviewed with Santa to be a member of his reindeer team.
He told me that, although I technically wasn’t a reindeer, I had many good qualities.
First of all, he was impressed with my strength.
When he checked my references, he discovered that I am dependable and hard-working.
Those are important qualities if you want to work for Santa.
Unfortunately, all the reindeer spots were already filled.
Santa put me on the Reindeer Wait List.
If one of the reindeer is unable to work Christmas Eve, I get to fill the vacancy.
