Overheard in Advent

While stuffing Miss M’s stocking with her usual toys…

DINO: I was spoking not a word, but went straight to my work.

(reference: Twas the Night before Christmas by Clement C Moore)


PRINCESS: (sings loudly) Joy to the world, the Lord is done!


DINO: I want to open number four now. (Advent calendar)

ME: Sorry, son, that’s for tomorrow.

DINO: WHAT?!?!? I don’t like that.

ME: Advent’s all about patience, son.

DINO: I don’t LIKE patience.

Of course, if we all liked having to practice patience, what would be the point of Advent as a mini-penitential season?
