May I have a computer for Christmas please?

“Daddy,” said the serious little girl. “May I have a computer

for Christmas please?”

“I’m sorry, darling, not at the moment, your mum and I have

a pile of heavy bills and our new car is costing us heaps of

money each month.”

The following spring, the little girl asked her father again for

a computer but he repeated what he had told her before. A

week later, early in the morning, daddy saw his daughter

leaving the house with a suitcase in her hand.

“Where are you going?” he asked.

“I’m leaving,” said the little girl. “Last night I was walking

past your room when I heard you telling Mum you were

pulling out and I heard her telling you to wait because she

was coming too. So there’s no way I’m staying here to cope

with all the bills.”
