I ran across this passage this week and couldn't help but laugh. For those of you who don't know it, this story is true. When our oldest child was two, he wanted a goldfish for Christmas. And it was dead on Christmas Eve so my husband dashed out to get a new one in a blizzard.
My husband is still dashing about to the store every night for something, even if we have it in the house already.
I am sure that the store is just an excuse for him to get out of the house now after 40 years of marriage.
I know that on Christmas Eve he will be dashing through the snow, in his car as a sleight, on the roads he'll go, laughing all the way!!!! To get milk.
David's Christmas Wish
Dad had to get to the store very quick, buying a new goldfish would do just the trick.
