Lighthearted look at Christmas
In last year’s hustle and bustle, we forgot my mother. She didn’t want much — just a couple of DVD movies. We had already bought her movies but forgot to send them.
About a week before Christmas we realized that one of the presents under our tree was hers, so I rushed to the shipping place and asked how much it would cost to send the approximately $30 worth of movies to my mother. The price to guarantee delivery the day before Christmas was about $42.
