Theo encounters Santa

Theo and I were at the mall today and there was a Santa Claus you
could take pictures with (for a price, of course). Theo's jaw dropped
2 feet when he saw Santa - then he got all shy and hugged my leg. The
Santa waved, and theo waved back with a shy "hi".

I asked theo if he wanted to meet Santa, but the response was a strong
No. We passed the Santa a few times but Theo's courage did not get any
stronger.

Later, after Santa had gone on break/returned to the North Pole, Theo
wondered aloud whether it was the real Santa or a guy who was just
dressed up like him. He settled on the idea that it was the real
Santa. Every year, that's going to be a tougher and tougher sell.
