festive expectations

Our stalwart eleven year-old Lola is getting braces in the New Year, as soon as her last baby tooth falls out.  We were discussing what life with braces will be like, including what she won't be able to eat, and Lola pointed a finger at me and said sternly, "I WILL be expecting at least two pounds of taffy for Christmas.  It IS required..."

I cut her off mid-sentence.  "Expecting?  Required?  You can't talk about Christmas that way!"

Lola backtracked immediately.  "I am so sorry!"

Still, the expectation lingers...
