Last night, dad brought my medications. He was in an uncommonly good mood and it was a joy to see him in such a way. Usually, he is so tired after working ten hours all day that he can be kind of dour. Well, he was worried I was going to be disappointed with my Christmas gifts from my brother and sister.
"They're getting you something called I-tunes gift cards," he said. "I hope you won't be disappointed."
I was ecstatic. It was the perfect gift for me and my new I-Pod. I get to download music for Christmas. I don't have a credit card.
"I would love it," I told him.
"Just what is it anyway?" he asked.
"It is a way to download music off the Internet," I replied.
"Well, I guess you will like that then," he said with a smile.
It is going to be a good Christmas. One of the better ones in years. I hate to be so materialistic, though.
