Ever since I was a little girl, my parents would ask me what I wanted for Christmas and I would always tell them I wanted a modern puppy; it has definitely now been fifteen years, and I am still waiting for my modern puppy.
I got clothes for a single year, a dollhome another year, and they even got me a car when I turned sixteen finally… But I didn’t get my puppy, so this year, I told my mom and dad I needed a modern oil furnace for my house.
I was hoping they would ignore this request and get me a puppy, but I was about to be surprised. I woke up on Christmas Eve and there was a knock on my study room door. The heating and A/C service van sat in my driveway, and I thought they were lost. I asked if I could help and the heating and A/C worker told me he had an oil furnace that was to be delivered and installed at this address. I looked at the task order, and my name was on it, but I hadn’t ordered the oil furnace, and he provided me with the minute page of the task order… And underlined in green were the words, Merry Christmas, Mom and Dad. He must have thought I was silly when I asked him if he happened to have a puppy in the service van? He laughed and said he didn’t have a puppy, but he did have the oil furnace. I called mom and dad and thanked them for the oil furnace, and told them it was about to be installed, however dad told me to quit being snarky because the puppy would arrive that day.
