"Did you know Jesus was born in a hay house?"
"Yes, and the word for that is 'stable.'"
"Because there was no room at the hotel. No room at the inside."
"No room at the inn, yes."
"I just made a hay house with my cheese."
"Mary and Joseph rode in their car. For real."
"Well, they didn't have cars yet. Do you know how they got there?"
"On a horse. Or a goat."
"Or, a donkey."
"Katie is Mary in the Christmas Pageant. Charlotte is the star."
"Do I have to eat one bite of chicken or two?"
"You can choose: one big or two small."
"We were playing batman. Tucker was the daddy and I was the baby."
"Except it's almost Christmas, so the daddy will die soon."
We flit in and out of these conversations: the nothing and the everything.
