Storyboard Text

  • We Love Each Other!!!
  • If only I had enough money I could buy Jim the fob chain for his watch.
  • Yes! Thank you, now I can buy Jim a fob chain!
  • I'll give you $20 for your hair
  • Jim and Della are a couple who are in love, a couple who are poor, and a couple who both have valuable possessions. They both want to buy something special for each other for Christmas.
  • Your hair is gone.
  • Here open my present!
  • Della had $1.87 to spend on Jim, but she really wanted to buy him a fob chain to attach to his valuable watch, but she didn't have enough money.
  • Oh! The combs I always wanted!!
  • Della had hair, so beautiful, so long, and she knew that if she sold her hair she could get money for the fob chain. Her hair was cut and it was sold for $20. Della now had enough money to buy him a chain.
  • Open my present, I cut my hair to buy your present.
  • Once Della got home, she got everything ready for the Christmas dinner, but she was very scared that Jim won't love her anymore because of her hair. But soon she heard Jim walk through the door.
  • When Jim walked through the door, he stared at Della. Della couldn't figure out whether Jim was mad, surprised, or disappointed. Then Jim just asked for her to open his present! She opened and it was combs that Della had always wanted.
  • Once Della opened the present, she gave Jim her present. When Jim realized it was a fob chain, he told her that he sold his watch to buy the combs. They both gave up something they both loved dearly to get something for the other that goes with what they loved dearly.
