Valerie beamed with excitement at the thought of participating in the Christmas program, she would hold a candle and recite a poem.
She turned to Victor and exclaimed:
Victor, you get to be an ox in the manger scene!
Hmm, said Victor shrugging his shoulders, clearly not convinced. What is an ox?
Oh, it's a cow, Valerie said confidently.
With great consternation, Victor exclaimed: Yeah, but, do ox have teats?
Up to that point we had been eavesdropping, but Alfredo and I quickly assured Victor that an ox was a boy cow and that his costume would not have "milkies."
