'Wish-list' by Becky Talbott

She despises what she sees in the mirror. She takes out her pen and makes a list: 

Hair- Shinier, longer, blonde (or any colour except ginger)
Eyes- bigger, brighter, blue (or any colour except green) 
Lips- fuller, redder
Teeth- whiter, straighter
Arms- less hairy, less flabby
Tummy- flatter, defined abs
Legs –longer, less hairy…

She is nowhere near finished but already its time to go. She quickly writes her name and age at the bottom of the page and puts it in the envelope “To Santa”. She hurries down for her tea.

She asks her mum what she wants for Christmas.
