“Oh, no! I didn’t get a present for my dog mom and dad! I’ve got to find something they’ll like!”
“They have plenty of books and paintings. I’ll bet I can find something completely different if I dig here under the snow.”
“Maybe a nice field mouse would make them happy? I know they don't like to find them in the house, but maybe a cute, snowy one...?”
"That's it. I give up. They'll just have to be happy with each other and me. We'll have Christmas Day at home together, with cuddling on the bed and romping in the snow and whatever treats they've laid in for us, and I don't think we need anything more."
For those who would like a little something more and haven't found it yet, I'll be at the bookstore until 2 p.m. tomorrow, but after that I can't help you until Saturday. I'll be busy getting ready to celebrate with David and Sarah.
