I couldn’t believe my luck when I received word that Mrs. Claus was willing to do an on-line chat with me.  (I had emailed the North Pole and inquired.)  So here is my brief but insightful conversation with Santa’s wife:

Me: Thanks so much for agreeing to chat, Mrs. Claus.  I’m new to blogging . This is quite an honor for me.

Mrs. Claus: You’re welcome, honey.  Santa and I are all about helping those who need extra help.

Me: I hope you won’t mind me asking:   How was your menopause?

Mrs. Claus: Whenever I got a hot flash, Santa just took me for a chilly ride on the sleigh.  I flew through menopause!

Me: Did you have trouble with weight gain?

Mrs. Claus: Yes, but mostly because Santa brings back the Christmas Eve cookies that you good folks leave him.  We freeze them, and I end up nibbling all year long.

Me: Now that you’re in your senior years, do you have any regrets?

Mrs. Claus: I wish I’d had my own career.  I’m usually portrayed as the woman behind the great man, smiling in a rocker.  I wish I’d rocked the world in other ways, maybe as a Rockette  or an astronaut blasting about in rocket ships.

Me: When Santa returns from delivering presents on Christmas Eve, are you waiting  up for him?

Mrs. Claus: Anyone married to a man as spunky as Santa would wait up for him.  That’s all I’m going to say about that!

Me: I know you’re mega busy right now, Mrs. Claus.  Again, thanks so much for chatting with me.

Mrs. Claus: Life’s a beach, honey, even in the North Pole.  You tell all your readers to whoop it up this holiday.

Me: Thanks, Mrs. Claus. I will!
