An Unexpected Gift
Sameer my friend had just returned from his vacation in Australia. His Dad had gifted him the Play Station III, Nike shoes and a casio keyboard. Sameer’s mom gave me a box of Australian candy and soon Sameer and I got busy playing on the play station.
I kept wondering how lucky Sameer was that his Dad lived in Australia. My Dad couldn’t afford to get us expensive gifts, so a trip to Australia would always be just a dream. When I was leaving Sameer followed me holding a tee shirt with a kangaroo on it. He said, “Here! Take this, it’s for you, so what if you can’t go to Australia, Australia can come to you”.
It was the most wonderful gift I could have received. I immediately put it on. Imagine having a kangaroo on my chest although I have never been to Australia. I refused to change the tee shirt the whole day.
