Yes, I know children’s drawings are only interesting to their parents, and so I apologize in advance, but I enjoyed this drawing I stumbled upon while cleaning up (I added translations in blue): In case it’s unclear, the the squiggly thing above and to the left of the poop is the digestive system of the […]

I say “presumably” because I don’t actually remember believing in him, or not believing in him, and I don’t remember “discovering” that there was no Santa.
