I was at Kroger the other day, when I had one of those moments when you see someone and they see you, and you both think - "I know you from somewhere." The guy was with his son - who was about 6 years old.
MAN: I think I know you from somewhere, but I can't think of where.
ME: I was thinking the same thing.
SON: Daddy, I know. It's Santa Claus!
(Dad doesn't pick up on what his son just said. I smile and wink at the son.)
DAD: Where do you live?
ME: The North Pole.
DAD: (chuckles) That's funny. No, seriously. This is gonna drive me nuts.
SON: Daddy! It's Santa!
DAD: I just saw you recently too.
ME: Well, maybe on Christmas Eve?
(I look at the son for confirmation. He smiles and shakes his head "Yes!".)
DAD: Man! Where do I know you from?
SON: Daddy! Santa...Claus!
(The son gestures with his arms as if to say, "Hello?!")
ME: Well, you'll figure it out soon. Nice seeing you again. Bye Matthew!
(I had heard the dad say the son's name earlier. The son's eyes got big and he waved.)
SON: (To his dad) See, daddy! It was Santa!
