THE NICE LIST
His mother, Marion, teases her son about his dreams to build a large robot ant with a
drawing of her son riding on the ant's back. Then it comes true.
The 'Nice List' is a book of the names of children who have behaved themselves during the preceding years. If a boy or girl misbehave, but do a lot of good deeds, it is possible to get off the 'Naughty List.' If they are always nice, they will continue to enjoy Christmas cheer and good will for life.
The Nice List applies to children who believe in Father Christmas, and pass that spirit on to their children.
Children who become adults and stay nice, are rewarded for their good deeds from time to time, though Santa would not deliver presents to them, he would counterbalance their lives in other ways. Their good deeds stay with them for life, excepting only if they do something really bad to fall off the Nice List. But, that almost never happens. Good people, tend to remain good people.
Really nice children, might end up at the United Nations, working in hospitals or with animals, to help other nice people, and even being nice to naughty people. Helping to make the world a better place. Keeping taxes low, food and energy fairly priced, to keep the planet stable. About which Father Christmas and his elves will be very grateful, as both the North and Antarctic South Poles are melting because of the bad behaviour of naughty, greedy individuals, who don't seem to care about their fellow men and women. For sure, those who are perpetually nice, will go to heaven to see Saint Peter. It is very unlikely they might pay a visit to the Devil in Hades, or see Margaret Thatcher down in the dungeons of damnation.
Jimmy does not want to be on the naught list. Though, he knows, or thinks, he has done some things that might put him there. He always tries to do better, so that where he may have strayed, he might neutralize his lapses in judgment.
