Greetings and Salutations. Samuel here. Phoebe and Freddie are another pair of mischief makers. Is it starting to sound like there are a lot of upstart elves at the North Pole? Not really. The 6 I have mentioned are the only scalawags among the multitude of elves. Any community will have a small population of scamps. That’s just the way societies are. The truth is that the rest of Santa’s elves are very happy and work together in harmony.
Back to Phoebe and Freddie, who are assigned to the wooden toy department. They do make beautiful wooden toys. Lester, the CEO (Chief Elf Officer), often compliments them for their fine workmanship. You’d think that would please them. Not so. In fact, they got the idea that the Toy Center would function much better if they were in charge. They hatched a devious plan.
When all of the elves went on their cookie break, Phoebe and Freddie stayed behind waiting for Lester to make his rounds. They lured Lester into the supply room pretending to need help locating some materials. Once he was well into the room, they ran out locking Lester inside. You can guess what they were going to do next.
Elf Cleo is a designer in the wooden toy department. She left something she needed at her station. Returning to get it, she saw what Phoebe and Freddie were doing. Cleo went right to Santa to report their tomfoolery. As a result, Phoebe and Freddie were detailed to separate shifts and, of course, no cookies for the rest of the month.
Tales of the North Pole are not only about elf shenanigans. Next time I will tell you about the CIA (Christmas Information Agency) which is my department. Til then, Fa la la la la.
Watch for the next posting Thursday...
