Lucy: “Hey.”
Dad: “Hey. Nice hat.”
“It’s yours.”
“I see that.”
“I borrowed it.”
“I see that too.”
“Is that okay?”
“Sure, it looks good on you.”
“Does it make me look cute?”
“It does.”
“Good, can I borrow some money?”
“Excuse me?”
“Can I borrow some money? I’ll pay you back.”
“What do you need money for?”
“I can’t tell you. It’s a surprise.”
“It’s a surprise that you’re asking to borrow money.”
Lucy: “I need it to buy stuff.”
Dad: “Don’t we all.”
“But I’m not exactly sure how to buy stuff.”
“What do you mean?”
“I want to buy some Christmas presents but I don’t know how to do that. Can you help me?”
“Help you buy Christmas presents…”
“Yeah, and keep your eyes closed when you do it.”
“When I help you buy presents…”
“So that what I get you will be a surprise.”
“I have a better idea.”
“What is it?”
Dad: “I could help you buy Mom a present and we won’t tell her. That way it will be a surprise for her.”
Lucy: “Cool!”
“And if you want, Mom could help you get something for me and I wouldn’t know so it would be a surprise.”
“Wow, that is so…Oops.”
“Oops, what?”
“I think I piddled a little. Sorry.”
“Do you like the idea?”
“Yes! Can I get something for the cats too?”
“I guess so.”
“Something from PayPal. That’s where Mom shops for them.”
“Actually, I think you’re supposed to send money to PayPal…”
“And they send you stuff. Yeah, I know.”
“I don’t think that’s how it works but I’ll look into that for you. What would you like to get Mom for Christmas?”
“Yeah, a big ol’ bag of chewies. A great big bag. A huge bag. The biggest bag in the world!”
“You think she’d like that?”
“Oh yeah!”
“Then we shall buy Mom a big ol’ bag of chewies.”
“No, I’ll buy them.”
“That’s what I meant.”
“The biggest bag in the world and I’ll pay you back.”
“How are you going to do that?”
“I’ll sell my hat.”
“But that’s my hat.”
“I’ll get you another one. Oops! I almost spoiled the surprise.”

[whispers] Hey, I have it on good authority that Mom would like some chewies for Christmas. A big ol’ bag. The biggest bag in the world. I also heard that the cats might like something from PayPal. Dad could probably use a new hat too. Now if we could just figure out what to get Lucy…

While shopping for gifts this year, remember to get a little something for and from the critters. They’ll pay you back.

PayPal for the cats
