I get it! You're a kid. Christmas is great cause you get Guitar Hero and Xbox and all kinds of cool shit. Yet, Christmas sucks. You have no money. You can't but any presents for others which is OK by you, but you're worried it might affect future cool gifts if you don't make an effort to give some sort of gift.
Still, poor you, you blew all your allowance on comic books, junk food and weed and now, even the Dollar Store is beyond your budget.
Don't worry. I'm here to help you, you snot-nosed brat.
Parents love when you make stuff for them.....wait...let me rephrase that: Parents don't really love when you make stuff for them, but will act like they do. After all, you made an effort, right?
So use your talents and create. Write them a story. Like this one. and your problems are solved.
