An Open Letter to Santa Claus
Eric Sundermann: Of course, mine are booze related. I'd love a nice bottle of scotch because I can't really afford to drink liquor that isn't better suited for cleaning rust. Of course, the bottle doesn't have to be too outrageous, but something that's a little bit better than my usual Dewars, or as their advertisement says, "the Drinking Man's Scotch." (Which is just ridiculous, by the way). There's also a whiskey that comes from my home county in Iowa called Templeton Rye, which I love. It's famous for being bootlegged during Prohibition by Al Capone himself. Or fuck it, maybe just a bigass bottle of Jameson.
Mallory Stuchin: I'd love those comically tiny Le Creuset baking dishes because they look like the offspring of Dutch ovens. I've also always wanted one of those divided bowls that separates cereal from milk and eliminates soggy Special K forever. I really hope that Nathan's reopens (and fills with people!) so I can try one of their famous hot dogs for the first time.
