Storyboard Text

  • Oh, what will I do?
  • Will you buy my hair?
  • Yes, for $20.
  • It is December 24 sometime in the 1900's. Mrs. James Dillingham Young, otherwise known as Della is at her home.
  • It is Christmas eve and Della doesn't have enough money to get her husband Mr. Dillingham Young a Christmas gift. She only has $1.87.
  • Della had an idea. She went to a barber shop and had her hair cut off. She sold it for twenty dollars. Now she was able to buy her husband a gift.
  • She went home with his present. Once he came home he saw her hair and was confused. He had also got her a gift.
  • What happened?
  • She got him a chain for his watch, and he got her hair combs. Jim wouldn't be able to use the chain because he sold his watch to get her the hair combs. She couldn't use her hair combs because she cut and sold her hair for his chain.
  • Oh my!
  • They both decided that they would put their gifts up. Jim would eventually get a new watch and Della would eventually grow her hair back out. It's just a matter of time.
