By Santa Claus, as told to Victor Schwartzman
But although it all seemed nice, Santa saw warning signs that someone was preparing to be naughty. In 2005, Santa left the Premier what she asked for: pencils with erasers, because she wanted to learn to be flexible about what she wrote down. Then, in 2006, she asked for an etch-a-sketch, so she could learn how to write something and then with a flick of her wrist make it disappear. Santa left her that toy, and in 2007 a disappearing ink pen. But Santa was becoming concerned. The Premier’s requests showed a disturbing pattern.
