  • A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of Christmas shopping. It was found by an honest little boy and returned to her. Looking in her purse, she commented, "Hmmm.... That's funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills."
    The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for a reward."

As we were putting out cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve, I accidentally dropped one. "No problem," I said, picking it up and dusting it off before placing it back on the plate.

"You canā€™t do that," argued my four-year-old.

"Donā€™t worry. Santa will never know."

He shot me a look. "So he knows if Iā€™ve been bad or good, but he doesnā€™t know the cookie fell on the floor?"
