Ducky: New tree?
Me: Yup. The lady brought it from her old house.
Ducky: Smells like the cat.
Me: Scooter used to live in that house, yes.
Ducky: We were looking to further increase the cat stink in here?
Me: It doesn’t smell like cat in here.
Ducky: Acclimation, thy name is human nose.
Me: …
Ducky: See, dogs have good sniffers.
Me: Yes, I know.
Ducky: What was wrong with our old tree?
Me: Remember how it used to fall on you?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: That’s not a Christmas tradition everywhere?
Me: No. Just here.
Ducky: Can’t say I’ll miss it.
Me: Me neither.
Ducky: We should start a new tradition!
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: We are not going to try to make the new tree fall on Scooter.
Ducky: I just want her to feel like part of the family during the cherished holiday season.
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: And I enjoy upsetting that cat.
Me: I know you do. But no cat squashing.
Ducky: Okay, Mr. Grinch. I love you.
Me: Love you too, Ducky.

Ducky: I don’t like the hat, Daddy.
Me: I know, Ducky. Thanks for putting up with it so we could get a good Christmas picture.
Ducky: You’re welcome. It’s not awful. It’s just not great.
Me: I appreciate you resisting the temptation to be hyperbolic.
Ducky: …
Me: It means…
Ducky: I know what it means.
Me: Okay.
Ducky: I think being hyperbolic is the single worst thing anyone could ever do in the entire history of the universe ever.
Me: …
Ducky: See, that’s funny because hyperbole…
Me: Yes, I know why that was funny.
Ducky: Okay.
Me: Anyway, we’re almost done.
Ducky: I figured it wouldn’t last that long. Bad things never do.
Me: Yeah?
Ducky: Hadn’t you noticed? 
Me: I guess I hadn’t.
Ducky: You had some bad things going on for a while.
Me: Yup.
Ducky: But it seems like since the last time this tree was up, things have been pretty good.
Me: Yeah. All things being considered it was a very good year.
Ducky: Sorry you had to wear an annoying hat or two for awhile there.
Me: …
Ducky: Metaphorically speaking.
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: A metaphor is…
Me: I know what a metaphor is, Ducky. And I get it. We had some tough years recently .
Ducky: And even some “hat-like” moments more recently.
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: But eventually the hat always comes off.
Me: So put up with the hat as best as you can and when it finally comes off…
Ducky: Put it behind you and focus on the treats you’re about to get.
Me: Yeah. The “treats” being all the good things in your life.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Or actual, non metaphorical treats.
Me: Sounds like a good way of looking at things. Thanks for taking care of me. I love you, Ducky.
Ducky: Thanks for taking care of me. And I love you too, Daddy.
Me: Ducky want a treat?
Ducky: …
Me: An actual treat?
Ducky: Sounds goods.
Me: Sorry about the hat
Ducky: What hat?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Merry Christmas, Ducky.
Ducky: Merry Christmas, Daddy.

From two years ago. One of my personal favorite “yes it really happened” posts,.
Me: …
Ducky: Oops.
 Me: …
Ducky: It was an accident. 
Me: Really?
Ducky: …
Me: You accidentally chewed open that present?
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I tripped. 
Me: That doesn’t even make sense. Your actions were willful and malicious. 
Ducky: Did you just accuse me of being skillful and delicious?
Me: Oh, Please. Don’t try to get out of this by exploiting my love of obscure Martin Short quotes.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I’m going completely mental, I must sa…
Me: Enough. That present was for the lady. 
Ducky: It had my name on it. 
Me: It was from you to her. 
Ducky: …
Me: We got her a fuzzy animal and had it hold onto one of your treats for her.
Ducky: That doesn’t sound like something I’d do.
Me: I did it on your behalf. I thought it would be cute.
Ducky: You wrapped a fuzzy animal and one of my treats, put it on the floor, and trusted that I would leave it alone for a week?
Me: …
Ducky: …
Me: Oops?
Ducky: Exactly.
Me: Fine. Well you’re going to feel bad when she decides to not give you the present she got for you.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Is it something I can eat or destroy?
Me: Probably. She saw your list. But now maybe she won’t want to give you anything.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Oops.
Me: Well put.
Ducky: Talk to her. Do me a solid.
Me: Why should I?
Ducky: If you do I’ll stop eating your socks when you leave me alone in the bedroom.
Me: …
Ducky: You hadn’t noticed?
Me: No, I hadn’t.
Ducky: Oops.
Me: …
Ducky: Merry Christmas, Daddy.
Me: Merry Christmas, Ducky.
