Santa redux

When we visited Santa two years ago he called Sid by name. She's never forgotten. Last year she was a little disappointed when he didn't. Although, she really liked the story he told her about taking Rudolf to the Toronto Zoo for a check up.
So this year she was wondering, eagerly I might add, if he would know her name. I explained that he had millions of children to visit every year and not to be sad if he didn't know her name.
So the big day arrives and I led her up the ramp to his castle and said quietly "Okay Sidney, it's your turn." Santa turned and said "Hi Sidney!" She gave the biggest smile and they had a great chat. After the pictures, she came over to us and I said: "Sid, he remembered your name, that's so cool". She looked at me straight faced and said "Mom he and I both heard you say my name first". Meaning: nice try Mom.
