"What is the difference between an elf and a gnome anyway," I questioned.
"Mommy, gnomes have tall pointy hats and elves have short pointy hats."
"If you see an elf, you should run for it."
"Why is that, honey?"
"Because if you can catch him and put him in a fish tank (without water) and put in a little TV and a chair, that's good luck, you know."
"Oh. That's good to know. I'll be sure to remember that."
