A Nice Present

I got woken up late last night by a noise in my living room. I got out of bed to check it out. It was Santa. He said, “Sorry, I’m a day early. I hope you don’t mind. It’s just that I found I couldn’t get it all done in one evening.”

I said, “It’s okay. It’s a nice surprise.”

He handed me my present. I said, “Can I open it up early?” He nodded yes.

I opened it up. It was a bag of coal. I was so excited!

I said, “Oh, my God! This is great! I love drawing with charcoal, and I like using the briquettes more than charcoal sticks because I like gripping when I draw. It’s more primal.”

That’s true. I’m inspired by cave paintings.
