Don't Be Like Forgetful Freddy, The Absent Minded Gift Buyer
By Aron Wallad
Don't be like Forgetful Freddy, The Absent Minded Gift Buyer
I have two short stories to tell you.
Last Christmas, Forgetful Freddy forgot to buy
Christmas gifts for one of his sons, his aunt and
his grandmother. Sitting around the Christmas
Tree with his entire family on December 25th was
a somber experience for Freddy.
In 2004 Forgetful Freddy's memory was also not
working too well. He did not remember his
daughter's birthday and his own anniversary.
He still feels embarrassed at family functions.
We all want to take care of those that are near
and dear to us. But as humans we sometimes
miss the mall. The joy of gift giving allows us
to show our gratitude for those in our lives we care
about and love. I know what it feels like to not receive
a gift when I was expecting something from a special
person in my life. I am pretty sure it feels the same way
for others. Yech.
So why leave it to chance? Remind yourself.
Freddy like I needed help. We both did not want to
forget a loved one around the holidays or on a special occasion.
We found what we were both looking for.
I know that a Gift Reminder Service may not be the most
crucial thing to take care of.
But as my Grandfather told me a long time ago.
Vich dell technich vich dell techni
To this day, I still do not know what he was talking about.
