After I posted my kid's goofy Christmas wish list on Wednesday, we asked you readers to send in some of your own. You were not a disappointment to us. One guy's kid sent in the entire contents of the toy section at Target. Another reader's kid had a list that included a diagram (its instructions and purpose were not clear). And I got one list that included "Meet my real dad" as a line item, though I daresay that list was a phony.
Here, in every bit of their glory, are some of the more amusing entries.
Cora, age 5: "Pieces of ribbon w/stuff on them"
Anonymous, age 8 1/2: "Waitress costume"
Mike's Daughter: "Giant squishable cinnamon bun"
Anonymous, age 7: "iPod Touch" (NOTE: This was intended to be a wish list not for the boy, but for his pet guinea pig)
Michele: "My 8 yr old son wrote my two yr old's list for her a la Charlie brown and Sallie. I think sabotage was afoot, the star is suspicious."
