Dear Frank: My Momma dresses me up at Christmas too and calls me a "danedeer". She thinks this is hilarious. She is usually very smart and rational, but then every year around mid November, she seems to go temporarily insane. Should I tell her that a "danedeer" isn't really a thing... and that she may need to see a therapist?
Sincerely, Baxter in Indiana
Dear Baxter: The key part to this is that your mom finds this hilarious. You're making her laugh! Well done. Being dressed up happens to the best of us. But a couple jingle bells and pair of antlers are a drop in the bucket for making your human smile. Don't tell her "danedeer" aren't a real thing.
P.S. Hope the photo below makes you feel better.
