Albert sits on a bale of hay. “It's not your fault, y'know,” he says as he reaches for a soggy butt behind his ear. “'e's hooked, he is.”

The horse trots over to the stall's gate.

Albert holds the butt while he searches his pockets. “It's the time of year,” he continues while pulling a matchbook he found free.

There's a questioning neigh.

Albert shakes a match loose. “It's no fault of yours if you're not a pig, is it?”

The horse snorts.

Albert lights his match. “Not bein' an elf again I'm not,” he mutters as he tilts the match to the butt.

The flame splutters; the horse whickers.

Albert looks at the horse suspiciously before he shrugs and tosses the match aside. “At least,” he raises his voice, “all I have to do is wear silly ears. At least I'm the right species.”

The horse stamps a hoof.

This might be the result of too many conversations like he had in ‘Tis the Season: Glue it.

But what has Binky done to deserve that?

I'm sure Albert has an answer.
