There are only a few days to go before Christmas and Santa is beginning to feel the pressure of his seasonal vocation. So, he decides to pay a visit to his doctor, who he hasn’t seen since he was a young boy. “My oath,” he mumbles to himself as he pulls up in front of the doctor’s magnificent house in his sleigh, “Doc’s doing well for himself, isn’t he?”
Then he addresses a gatekeeper standing in front of some very fancy gates indeed.
Have you ever had the feeling you’re experiencing a moment you’ve experienced before? A déjà vu? Last month we were driving along the freeway when we overtook a van pulling a trailer. I glanced aside and then looked in front of me again. ‘Is that what I think it is?’ I said to myself. I looked aside again at the car on the trailer. ‘Yep, it’s a 70s Jaguar XJS alright.’ At that moment of recognition, I was flung back to the time when I was a teenager in Australia. The dad of one of my best mates had a Jag just like that, except his had a silvery grey colour, while the one being towed was dark green.
