Karenna: How do Santa's reindeer fly anyway?
Me: I don't know.
Karenna: I think I'll write a letter to Santa asking him.
Me: He might not tell you.
Karenna: Why not?
Me: What if the technology is patented?
Karenna: What does that mean?
Me: You get a patent when you have an idea and you don't want other people to copy you.
Karenna: I won't copy him.
Me: I know, but what if you told someone who did?

A little while after changing the subject to what the word tragedy means...
Karenna: So when my friend told the boy I liked what I like him, that was a tragedy.
Me: Why is it embarrassing to like someone?  Everybody has crushes. You shouldn't be embarrassed.  Look at Jude; he has a whole list of girls he has crushes on and he's not embarrassed.
Karenna: That's different.  He likes those girls, but they all like him back.  Even girls he doesn't know come up to him and say, 'You're cute'.
Me: Don't you think people like you?  A lot of people like you.
Karenna: Mom, can we please stop talking about this.
Me: Why?
Karenna: Because it's patented information.
