“Perhaps you should take the day off work,” said Hillbilly Bob’s mother when she saw how sick he looked. “You don’t look well at all. There has been a nasty flu bug going around.”
“Thanks Mother,” said Hillbilly Bob. “I just might have to do that. I really am not feeling good at all.”
Hillbilly Bob phoned his boss at the gas station and told him he was sick. His boss told him he hoped he would get better soon.
It was only a few days before Christmas and all Hillbilly Bob wanted was to spend Christmas with his family. While he was sick, he had a dream. In the dream his family were all sitting at the dinner table together, eating their Christmas dinner and laughing and joking around. Hillbilly Bob was very happy. That was what he wanted for Christmas. He didn’t want anything else.
Later that evening, Hillbilly Bob was feeling better so he went into the kitchen to get a glass of water. There, at the dinner table were his parents, his aunts, uncles, cousins and his grandparents. He was very happy. He really did get what he wanted for Christmas, for real.
