We meet Santa in Walmart

This is an old story but I want to get it down so it's not lost.
Bugs has been able to talk in complete sentences and everything since he was 18 months old. He was a little freak of nature. He never talked baby talk, he just started talking. I used to have to remind people, I know he talks really well but you do know he's only 2 right? OK, that's the back story...
We were shopping at Walmart when he was 2 for whatever we were shopping for. A very large man with snow white hair and long beard came by. Bugs has HUGE brown eyes and he looked at him and squinted and said in a quiet clear voice "Are you Santa Claus?" The man looked at him and smiled and got very serious and said "Do you think I'm Santa Clause?" Bugs looked at him with eyes as big as saucers and as dark as marbles and silently nodded yes. The man reached into his pocket and pulled out a candy cane and handed it to Bugs and said " You just never know".
We all looked at each other and we KNEW we had just meet Santa Claus!
