YOU buy things,they don`t buy you

4 years ago

On the last day before Christmas, I hurried to go to the

supermarket to buy the remaining of the gifts I didn`t manage to buy

earlier. When I saw all the people there, I started to complain to myself:

`It is going to take forever here and I still have so many other places to

go...` `Christmas really is getting more and more annoying every year.

How I wish I could just lie down, go to sleep and only wake up after it...`

Nonetheless, I made my way to the toy section, and there

I started to curse the prices, wondering if after all kids really play with

such expensive toys. While looking in the toy section, I noticed a small boy

of about 5 years old, pressing a doll against his chest. He kept on touching

the hair of the doll and looked so sad.

I wondered who was this doll for. Then the little boy

turned to the old woman next to him:

`Granny, are you sure I don`t have enough money?` The

old lady replied: `You know that you don`t have enough money to buy this

doll, my dear.` Then she asked him to stay here for 5 minutes while she went

to look around. She left quickly. The little boy was still holding the doll

in his hand.

Finally, I started to walk toward him and I asked him who

did he want to give this doll to.

`It is the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so

much for this Christmas. She was so sure that Santa Claus would bring it to

her.` I replied to him that maybe Santa Claus will bring it to her, after

all, and not to worry. But he replied to me sadly. `No, Santa Claus can not

bring it to her where she is now. I have to give the doll to my mother so

that she can give it to her when she goes there.`
