The Secret of a Teenage Boys’ Christmas Joy

“Boobello, if you had one thing you could have for Christmas, what would that be?”

“I’m okay this year mom, really.”

“No. I asked you a question . . .”


“Well, you aren’t going to like it . . .”

“Try me.”

“I want to play Rugby this season.”

“And that’s what you want for Christmas – more than anything? Why?”

“Well . . . because Dad is coaching and I want to hang out with him and my friends.”




“Yes, Merry Christmas Brian.”

“You said yes?”

“Yes, Brian, don’t make me take it back. But your grades stay up, right?”

“Yes, of course. I love you mom. Merry Christmas.”

Merry Christmas – my heart walking outside in the world  . . .

Until next time –

    “Brian, what do you want for Christmas?”

    “I dont want to ask it’s too expensive.”

    Ok, what.

    “Its a bike. All my friends ride on the weekends and have fun and I want to go but I cant.”

    “well why do you think it’s too expensive”

    “Because it costs more than my Xbox”

    Ah I love the cost comparison frame of reference.

    great post Cath. xoxo Rem

    It’s so interesting that we both have Brians. I wanted to get Brian a bike this year too – you never know what Christmas magic will bring.

    LOL they compare everything to an XBox.
