I feel like a hockey puck

Sometimes I forget that despite my Christmas feats and my longevity, I am still human.

Today I played hockey with the school elves. We were having a jolly time.

The puck was loose and I went after it, hoping that I could fire it into the net.

Instead, I took a tumble, landing on my face and knee!

My knee is now swollen. There is an ice pack on it.

The doctor says I must stay off it for a couple of days.

I also bent my glasses’ frame.

Mrs. Claus keeps making comments about a man my age – 1,700 - playing with children.

I think playing with children is one of the reasons I’ve lived this long!

Oh well, no hockey for a while.

Maybe a good game of chess instead!
