Are You Excited About Christmas?

Walking through town this morning, I met an acquaintance.  “Oh, Hi!  How are you?”
Surprised I’d acknowledged him he very enthusiastically greeted me back and then said,
“Hey! Are you excited about Christmas?”
I said I was and again he expressed surprise.
“I’m not!”  He said.  “I hate it.  Christmas is for children and I don’t like them either.”
My turn to show surprise. 

The next thing he said was, “Do you know when Crime Watch is next on?”
You’re asking the wrong person that question, I thought to myself, and said, “No.  I haven’t got a clue.”
“Oh!” He replied.  “Because I just wanted to find out what my kids are up to over Christmas.”

Well, I thought it was funny but I have no idea if it was original!
