At Home

Jazzy: Christmas morning! Weeeeee!

Oh my gosh! I’m so excited!
Oh my gosh! Oooh, this one’s heavy!
Oh my gosh! This is just what I wanted!
Oh my gosh! This is my favorite thing!

I LOVE Christmas.

Joshua: I didn’t get any gifts.
Jazzy: Oh my gosh. Are you sure?
Joshua: Yeah. I’m sure.
Jazzy: I’m sorry.
Man, I really hope there’s a store open so I can get Joshua some gifts.

Let’s go.

At the Department Store

Jazzy: Hey, Joshua doesn’t have a bike; maybe I should get him this one. Naw.

Son: Mom, you’d better give me the right toys this time. Because the toys you got me for Christmas suck!
Mother: Um . . . What about this one? It looks like so much fun!
Son: No mom — it’s rated “E”. I want “M”.
Mother: What about this one?
Son: No, it’s stupid. Look at it. You wouldn’t even know, stupid mom.
Mother: But what do you want?
Son: Ah, no.
Mother: Okay, we came here to get you a new gift, because you don’t like anything else. So I need you to choose something. Please, just . . .
Son: Well, I don’t like any of them.

Jazzy: Hey! Okay, you need to be more grateful for what your mom got you: so many kids would love to have what you got . . . especially my brother — he didn’t even get anything.

Merry Christmas.
Son: Mom; that lady’s being mean to me. Tell her to stop.
Mother: Good. Sigh.

Stock Clerk: Sigh.
Jazzy: Are you okay?
Stock Clerk: Sigh; yeah, I’m fine. I’m just a little sad that I’m not getting to spend Christmas with my family.
Jazzy: Oh. I’m sorry.
Stock Clerk: No, no; it’s alright. Don’t worry about it.
Jazzy: Wait. Actually, I have a gift card; you can get some hot chocolate later. Merry Christmas.

Stock Clerk: Merry Christmas.

Jazzy: Joshua would love this; this is perfect. I’m sure he would really like this too — so I’ll get him this.

Oh . . . my gosh. This is perfect!

This is a GREAT day!

Jazzy: Oh, you can have it.
Boy: Thank you. Oh, wait. I can’t get it. Never mind. I’m five dollars short. I’m using my Christmas money I just got.
You can have it.
Jazzy: Okay, don’t even worry about it. You know what? Here, I have five dollars.
Boy: Thank you!
Jazzy: Have a Merry Christmas.
Boy: You too!

Back at Home

Jazzy: Joshua! Look, I got you some presents! Merry Christmas!
Joshua: Weeee. Oh, hey Jazzy, Where did you go? You missed it: I got my bike. That’s all that I’ve ever wanted for Christmas.

What’s with all the gifts?

Jazzy: Oh. So you got more presents than me?

You know what? I don’t really mind because it’s the thought that counts and Christmas is all about giving.

Merry Christmas.
