THE BIRTHDAY BOY
A Late Chat Production

A Good Boy Scenario

Your son, Drew, turned ten today.  Drew is an animal lover and has always been very charitable and giving.  Drew decides that he does not want any gifts for his birthday.  Drew wants gifts that can be given to the local animal shelter instead such as food, dog toys, and blankets.  He also says he wants to donate any birthday money to the shelter.  His idea is a success.  All of his friends bring gifts of dog food, dog toys, and pet supplies.  His grandparents graciously go with Drew's wishes and they make a hundred dollar donation to the shelter in Drew's name.

Several months ago and before Drew made his decision about his birthday gifts you purchased an x-box one.  You hid the x-box in the back of your closet to give to Drew as a birthday gift.  Drew had been wanting the x-box one since its release was announced.

What do you do about Drew's birthday gift?

The x-box will keep until Christmas. I'll match Grandma's and Grandpa's donation to the shelter.

Hugs for Drew.

An x-boy one for birthday? I don't know what that thing costs over the great water but here it starts at about 360 Euros. A little bit over the top for a ten year old, but anyway, it's already bought. It has to live in my closet until christmas.

I'm sure it is cheaper over there Padraig - most things are Smile

Let's just hope he doesn't decide he wants to do the same thing at Christmas!

Since it's been several months, I can probably manage to make a donation to the animal shelter, as well as buying the XBox.

I'm going to do that, then this evening, I'll tell him that I thought he probably deserved at least a little something for himself, then give him the XBox - probably early enough for us to enjoy a game or two together.

I'll join the group and keep it for Christmas. While I would like to give it to him now, I'm afraid that by doing so I'll undermine his gesture on behalf of the animal shelter. He need never know it was intended as a birthday present.

Would somebody please explain what an x-box is (or in Padraig's case, an x-boy)?

Push - I must admit that at first I assumed it was similar to a y-carton but bigger and stronger. Smile

Then I googled it and all was revealed:
