I wasn't sure of the exact site of the meeting, but the collection of white-bearded men sitting on a bench outside a door was a dead giveaway!
We entered the meeting site, and were promptly informed that Santa was arriving at the mall tomorrow! The helper who would be arriving had been informed, but none of the rest of us.
I'd expected a week's notice. I needed to get some supplies and to dig out my kit (check the makeup for my beard, polish my boots, make sure my belt and cap are ready, etc.)
I'll have to get everything ready tomorrow.
My first shift is Sunday at noon!
Pax et bonum
