Driving to school, I told my kids that I saw a deer on my morning run. This created quite a lively debate between the three of them:
"Maybe it was a REINDEER!"
"Maybe Santa is checking up on kids to make sure they are good!"
"Did you see a red light? Maybe it was Rudolf!"
"No, Rudolf does, like, ALL the heavy pulling on Christmas Eve, he is probably at the North Pole resting up."
"Maybe it was Dasher!"
Then The Middle Child piped up, "Or maybe it was just a regular old deer named Brad."
