You scared me. Oh, dear.
Look at you. Step up on this and get up on my knew.
There we go, like that. Good. You were trying to scare me?
Really? You know what scares me a lot?
If you grab my beard.

Hello, how are you?
Why don’t you stand up for me.
I think she could sit on your lap all day.

Hello! How are you?
Why don’t you stand up? Sit on my other knee. Okay, a big smile. Merry Christmas.
A camera. Take pictures. Take picture of your mom and dad.

I saw you before.
And she remembered one of her questions. What is your question?
“Where are your reindeer?”
“The reindeer? You know what? They get jittery when there are people around. So we had to move them out of town in a field where there isn’t anybody around.”
