“So what’ next Thursday? National Murder Day?”
“Ha. No, just a day I have to take care of some business.”

“You’re serious, aren’t you?”
“As that heart-attack.”

“So…. what… are you some kind of assassin?”

“So, no, just a business man with plans.”

“So who are you going to kill? Wait… you mean kill as in killing their business, right?”

A pause. “Yes, Tad, that’s what I meant.”

“Whew! You had me going there for a moment.”

“I did, didn’t I.”

“I mean I really thought you were going to kill somebody on Thursday.”

“Ha. How silly.”

“Right, I mean, really. How stupid can you be?”

“Right, I’d imagine.”

“So… if you were going to kill somebody, who would it be?”

“You, of course.”

“Ha! That’s a good one. Luckily my business has nothing you’d want.”

“That is so true. I guess you are safe then.”

“Lucky me.”

“Indeed.”

“HA! HA! You are so funny! Well, I have to get back to work. See you later, Bill.”

“Later, Tad… Just don’t make any Friday plans!”

“How many things are in the circles?”

Katie counted. “Four.”

“There are four things in this circle and this circle, but what about this circle?”

Again she counted. “Five!”

“Right.”

“What about this?” she asked, picking up the matchbox truck.

“Where would that go?”

Katie placed the truck on Santa.

“How about here?” he put the Matchbox truck on top of the Lego truck. “They are both trucks.”

Katie paused, then shook her head. “No. Santa’s truck.”

“He must have a lot of toys to deliver to need a big truck like that.”

“All for me!”
