After seeing that presents were being given and hearing that they were for Bunny, another little boy in my class was stricken by a feeling of wanting to give a present. He dug through his backpack and presented me with a half drunken bottle of Seven Up, announcing that it was for Blueberry. He also later gave me a piece of paper that he used a star punch on to cut out the edges to make it fancy, and told me that was also a gift for Blueberry.
I dutifully brought home the gifts and presented them to the girls. As you might guess, their reactions were somewhat different when I presented them with their presents. The conversation was entertaining, to say the least.
Me: Girls, I have presents for you from school.
Bunny: A present? For me? Oh boy! Oh boy! What is it?
Blueberry: Presents?! I love presents!
Me: This bow is for Bunny from Miss M!
Bunny: Oh, I love it! Look! There's even a sparkly heart on it! I need to go write a thank you to her right now!
Me: I'm sure she'd like that! And Blueberry, here's half a bottle of Seven Up!
Blueberry: Seriously, what is my present?
Me: He sent you this bottle of soda to drink and this piece of paper.
Blueberry: No sparkly bow?
Me: Um, no, I'm afraid not.
Bunny: It's the thought that counts, Blue!
Blueberry: Says the girl with the sparkly bow. I'm off for a nap!
Bunny here, sneaking in for a quick word! Thank you Miss M for the fancy bow! Your mom does good work. The yogurt was yummy last night, too! I'm still licking my lips!
