Christmas Short #1: Not his father's Santa--let alone my father's Santa

The Boy: Does Santa have a desk?
Me: A desk?
The Boy: Yes, a desk?
Me: [pause] Yes.
Boy: Does he have a computer? For his e-mail?
Me: Yes he does. And we sent him one saying that you were such a good boy this year.
Boy: Okay.
Boy: Where does he put his candy canes?
Me: He has a little cup on his desk where he keeps them.
Boy: What about when it's not Christmas?
Me: He puts them in a big closet.
Boy: No. I think he puts them in a drawer in his desk.
Me: Maybe that's right.
No doubt we'll soon have some interesting conversations about the Tooth Fairy.
