JtTMDAY, MCEMBBE 11, 1991 \ HM. §OrtIS COLUMN Dear Santa: I'd Like an Elf To Substitute for Gremlin Ruining My Present Life (ARK.) COURIER NEWS NEW YORK (AP)-Dear Santa*. Glaus: A little girl from the Bronx- wrote you recently and asked for a baby I gorilla for Christmas. She aald If j she couldn't have the gorilla—she Just wanted to grow up with it- she didn't care for anything at all. Well, that's pretty much the way I feel, except I don't want a baby gorilla. I want an elf. I've wanted | one all my life-a good, well-traln- gg obedient elf, sound of wind and As a child I bfBaii lo suspect there was something wrong with people Now, after 40 years of living, I've come to the conclusion thev just aren't dependable. They get all mixed up. You do a swell job of straightening things out while you're on duty, Santa, but you take a rather long vacation. What I want is one i,l your elves to fill In on the 3G4 davs a year you aren't working. And I want him this year—or never. It's Ihe drcmliiis One of the troubles with civilization, probably, is that it gave up believing in elves —• and Is now plagued with gremlins. What I want it a real, conscien tious, old-fashioned, good-Hearted elf to help me fight the gremlins of today. Every household really needs one. An elf would help fill tha void still left In modern living despite the invention of the electric dishwasher and the all-purpose vitamin tablet. He'd take the place of the cricket on the hearth—or rather, in our house, the radiator. He Could Do So Much * There are so many things for him : do about the place. When the covers slipped off me at night; no more blind groping and grunting about In the dark. Little old elfle would attend to that. He could also bite the alarm clock In the morri- Ing. give me. a shave, and put the coffee pot on the stove. All day -long he could do little hou-whoki choree like cleaning the reneWan blind* and making elfin remarks to my wif/s. That would keep her In such good, humor that when I came home, she'd say. "let's •at at home, tonight, dear. I don't feel lite going out. Tm Just worn out from laughing at that wonderful elf we got for Christmas." He'd Answer Telephone. : O)>8 of his big Jobs would b« to answer the door and the telephone, task* I hare oom« to hate. ,"No, Mr. Bopte ten't Bt horns." he'd say pollielj, "but thta is his e!f. Any message, sir?". There are toma dayj when I'd like to take him to the office. Can't you imagine all the things you could do at your office, pleasant or mean, with the help of i H-karat elf? WXto o>M4 ooiMng irh«t tt doM Bg*. Btntt, I'd purer ^vegetarian «?? of course. Wa don't hav« any porrldg* (i .understand they like porridge),' b\it perhap» you have one that oould get along on carrots, "blackstrap molasses «nd yogurt. .'octal Needc Guaranteed Naturally, we'd guarantee him locial security, a two-pants suit, a night out sacli week, and vacations with pay. Even an elf wants to drest well »nd relax like everybody els a. I don't know, Santa, how long even an 'elf could stand tha strain of Manhattan life. He may turn into a gremlin himself. But if he does', you can have him back next year. Sincerely, Hal Boyla WILL CALL ON SANTA- Hollywood actress Carolina Cotton tries on the outfit she'll wear when she delivers thousands of letters from American youngsters to Santa Glaus at the North Pole. Carolina will be the first woman over to fly over the Pole. The letters will be droppecj in a specially built, hollow steel pole as her plane circles over (lie spot where the poleless Pole should be.
