Earlier this week, a Simcoe County resident called the North Pole to say she had found one of Santa's Elves "trapped" in her home.
Investigator Elves were promptly dispatched to the property only to find no elf. However, what they did find raised their suspicions. LOTS of sewing and, in particular, incredible embroidery work completed with Pfaff sewing machines. Investigator Elves are... well, they are still investigating because there is definitely one elf missing from the North Pole. Oddly enough, the missing elf specialized in using Pfaff embroidery machines.
The resident says she "released" the elf from the closet door and the elf immediately disappeared.
(Yeah, sure. We believe you.)
When asked to comment, Santa replied with trepidation, "This could certainly have an impact on Christmas. We need all hands on deck at this time of year. It is very odd for one of my elves to leave the North Pole at any time of year, but why now?"
The Simcoe County resident remains under investigation because it's just like all of those other news stories.... "Why are you busy taking a picture of a trapped elf when you could be helping?"
As well, the resident of the home is known to socialize with a quilter who has "connections" to the North Pole. (see earlier blog post for a HINT on who that might be... just sayin') The lead elf investigator said, "I'm not pointing any ears, but this one sure smells
like gingerbread women to me."
