Christmas Disappointment

Christmas Disappointment

My mother and I were talking over the weekend about a traumatic memory from Christmas past.  I was 5 or 6, woke up on Christmas morning and under the tree seemed to be a million presents.  My little brother and I charged toward the tree, ready to open the presents we wanted most.  I kept unwrapping present after present, but the one thing I really wanted wasn’t there!  All I wanted was a Gumby.  I didn’t get one and lost it.  My mom had gone out, looking everywhere for one but couldn’t find it.  I remember saying, “Amazon didn’t even have it?”  To which my mother replied, “sorry honey, Amazon won’t exist for a couple more decades.”  That last bit may or may not be true, I do however know that I wasn’t the only kid ever disappointed on Christmas.  Let’s go to the video!
