“Did you miss Santa’s helper?”I heard Akemi ask me.
“Did I miss Santa’s helper?”I asked back.
“Did you meet Sam and Andy?”she seemed to say.
“Did I meet Sam and Andy?”I echoed back quizzically.
“Did you meet Uncle Stansby?”she tried again, the frustration clearly mounting.
“Did I meet Uncle Stansby?”I repeated, growing equally weary.

In case you’re thinking of going – they weren’t.
