On the phone this evening with my sister-in-law, Kathleen. She reports that my nephew, Dillon, had only one item on his Christmas wish list. An action figure from a video game, Kingdom Hearts. Kathleen found said figure on ebay for under ten dollars, but the shipping is over twenty.
Anyway, Kathleen told Dillon that maybe he'd want to put some other items on the list. You know, give Santa a whole range of options. Dillon went away and came back later with exactly one other item on the list: a cookbook.
"You want a cookbook, dude?" she asked.
"If I get it, I'll give it to you," he said.
At which point, Kathleen decided he'd get that action figure no matter what.
