How am I going to buy Jim a gift? All I have is $1.87 to spend!
The "Hairy" Situation
Ok, give me the money.
Will you buy my hair?
Yes I will buy it for $20
Today is Christmas Eve and Della has only a dollar and eighty-seven cents to spend on her husbands Christmas gift. She knows that she has to find a way to pay for nice gift for Jim.
The Waiting Game
I wonder where Jim is? Wait, I think I hear him coming!
She put on her brown coat and hat and went out. She came upon a hair shop that bought hair and she decided that the only way to buy her husband a gift was to give up the possession she cared most about. Her beautiful long hair.
Jim I had to cut of my hair so I could buy you a gift. Please say you still love me Jim, please understand that all I had was $1.87 for a gift. You are worth so much more than that.
After she received the money, she went out looking for a perfect gift for Jim. When she found the fob chain, she knew it was made just for Jim and no one else.
Della! I love you so much. I didn't realize you would buy me that fob chain. I sold my watch to buy you these combs you wanted.
Jim, I think that we both learned a valuable message. We both love each other so much that we were willing to give away our most prized possession just to make each other happy.
Della is at home and she is waiting for Jim to come home. As she waits she is very nervous that he won't like her anymore because of her new hairstyle.
As Jim came in the house, he had a look on his face that Della couldn't explain. She wanted him to know how much she was willing to let go for him.
Jim told Della he had sold his watch so he could buy her the combs she's wanted. They both realized how much they love each other and how far they'd go to make each other happy no matter the circumstances. They both understood that the one thing that you can never take away is love. It's something that they'll always share. The End
