Santa's Bag of Tricks

Daughter: I really hope Santa brings me the things on my list.
Me: What list?
Daughter: I asked for: a real kitten, a real chestnut horse, and another American Girl doll.
Me: Oh.
Daughter: I asked for stuff for you, too!
Me: Like what?
Daughter: A lie detector. So you can tell when we are lying.
Me: I tell you what. If you don't lie to me, I won't even need one!
Daughter: Um. Yeah. You really do need one.


  1. It's good to embed redundancy in any important system!

  2. NASA-style! It makes sense, I suppose. Santa DOES know if you've been naughty or nice...

  3. NASA is exactly what I was thinking of! (Hubby majored in Aerospace Engineering)

  4. I'm all about fail safes, GEW. (Aerospace Engineering? Cool!)
