"First day of Christmas break and I'm already out of poop jokes," little kid said as he watched me clean the litter box.
"That's tragic. I'm so sad for you. It's like we'll have to live like civilized human beings for at least the day," I replied.
"Yeah." He stood there for a moment, contemplatively. "Wait, wait -- the scat that smiles back."
He smiled triumphantly and I laughed, reluctantly.
"Yeah," I conceded.
