Nothing is ever easy

Last night I sang the extended lyric version of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer to the girls -- they'd never heard it that way, amazingly; although I admit they were more perplexed than amused. "Like Monopoly? What does that mean?" Mallory asked halfway through. I soldiered on and gave it the big finish: "You'll go down in history! Like Columbus!"

Phoebe said: "What's a klumpus?"

"Yeah," Mallory said, "I've never heard of a klumpus at Christmas time."

"Columbus," I said. "Like Columbus, like Christopher Columbus."

"Who's that?" Phoebe asked.

"You know," Mallory said. "He was with the Mayflower, and all that."
