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 new kitten, and it has now been fifteen years, and I am still waiting for my new kitten.
I got clothes for a single year, a dollhouse another year, and they even got me a car when I turned sixteen, but I didn’t get my kitten… However, this year I told my mom and dad I needed a new gas 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 HVAC service van sat in my driveway, and I thought they were lost. I asked if I could help and the HVAC supplier told me he had a gas furnace that was to be delivered and installed at this address. I looked at the job order, and my name was on it, but I hadn’t ordered the gas furnace, then he provided me with the minute page of the job order, and underlined in red were the words, Merry Christmas, Mom and Dad. He must have thought I was deranged when I asked him if he happened to have a puppy in the service van? He simply laughed and said he didn’t have a puppy, but he did have the gas furnace. I called mom and dad and quickly thanked them for the gas furnace, and told them it was about to be installed, and dad told me to quit being snarky because the puppy would also arrive in the afternoon.
