Christmas Wishes

Me: What are you writing?

Bear: My wishlist for Christmas. I want my own trampoline and some vanilla beans.

Me: That's an odd combination.

Bear: Well, I know I won't get the trampoline. But vanilla just smells and tastes so wonderful! And we could afford some, couldn't we? We could add some to our morning porridge.

Me: Aye.

Bear: Good. Have you written your list yet?

Me: I don't need anything.

Bear: We both don't *need* anything, really. But what would you *like*?

Me: I … don't know. Some raspberries would go well with the vanilla and the porridge, I'd expect.

Bear: It's not exactly the season for raspberries. But we'll see. It's the season of wonders.
