Saturday DH took the girls to have breakfast at Chick-Fil-A with Santa. S was super excited. She wanted to know if she could see his sleigh. I had to be quick on my feet.
"Well, honey, it's probably too big to park at Chick-Fil-A. Their parking lot is pretty small."
"Oh," she said, disappointed. "How will he get there?"
"Maybe he'll park somewhere nearby and walk over?"
"Yeah, or someone can give him a ride."
"Sure," I said, thinking I'd dodged that bullet.
But then her face lit up. "He could park here and ride with us!"
"Well, honey, that is so sweet, but he probably already has a ride for today. But you could ask him when you see him if we can give him a ride next year."
Please let that elephantine memory of hers fail on this so next year we don't have to invent a reason why he didn't accept our invitation...
This is linked to a monthly meme with Not Just Another Jen. November's word of the month is "Give". Though not exactly used in the sense I think she was looking for, it does appear here, and it's a cute story. :)
