Where Pegman Crashed. North Pole, Alaska

Santa-peg turned his back on the Cessna-sleigh-plane wreck. Insurance would cover the sleigh but rounding up the reindeer was going to play hell with his schedule. Why had he installed that newfangled SatNav contraption?: The reindeer would never have picked the wrong North Pole. Right now, he needed to wet his beard and — by golly — this was the spot to do it. What a stroke of luck to crash right outside a public house. But what sort of luck?: He hadn’t even reached the bar when he saw them – A consortium of WordPressers clustered around the corner-table sipping ale whilst trading posts. He turned to leave, but it was too late “Look, it’s Santa-peg” a woman shouted. Drat. He couldn’t make a bolt without the reindeer nor let his fans down in good conscience. With a grin he bellowed “Merry Christmas. Ho-ho-ho – Do I have some prompts for you!”.

  1. I saw an image on Facebook (can’t find it now) of the aftermath of a mid-air collision between Santa’s sleigh and an flying saucer. They’re both crashed in the snow and police are taking statements from both St. Nick and the alien, though it looks like the alien is being taken into custody. That’s the first thing I thought of as I read your story. Maybe I should have written that instead.
