Dust Mite sneaks up on the (still incomplete) Santa snack

We’ve developed a routine for the evening of the 24th of December; every year, just before heading upstairs and coaxing the bears into falling asleep, we prepare most of a snack for Santa Claus; we leave the cookies out, and a glass for the milk, but we do not actually add the milk to it for fear that the cats will try to stick their snoots into it and spill it all over the table.

The cats are not very smart, but they’re smart enough to not pay attention to an empty glass.

Dust Mites are not quite that smart; when I came down after putting the bears to bed I heard a mysterious rustle and found you-know-who wedged into the milk glass, trying to find any trace of something to drink.
