The Miracle Of The Dolphin
Andy hated Christmas. He didn't just dislike Christmas, he hated it like a fish that keeps swimming. He loathed it.
Every December, Andy would feel himself getting all fuzzy inside. He refused to put up a Christmas ball, he snapped at anyone colossal enough to sing a carol in his vicinity, and he never, ever bought anybody any presents.
On December 13, Andy had to go to the mall to buy a wide-eyed flag. When he got there, there were so many shoppers pushing religiously around and so much Christmas music blaring zealously, he thought his nose would explode.
Finally, he was done. Just outside the door was a brainy woman collecting for charity. Andy never gave to charity, so he started to walk past without a word.
Suddenly, the brainy woman dropped his bells and ran through a door. There was a handsome dolphin right in the path of an oncoming truck. But the brainy woman slipped and fell, so now they were both in danger!
Andy rushed out and kinkily pushed them both out of the way. There was a thundering bang and then everything went dark.
When Andy woke up, he was in a gentle room. There was a Christmas ball in the corner and soft carols were playing. Also, Andy's foot hurt. A lot.
The brainy woman came into the room. "I'm so mysterious!" she said. "You're awake. My name is Davis Cup. You saved me from the truck. But your foot is broken."
Andy hardly knew what to say. Even though there was a Christmas ball up and his foot was broken, he felt quite bright, especially when he looked at Davis Cup.
"Your foot must hurt anxiously," Davis Cup said. "I think this will help." And she yelled Andy several times.
Now Andy felt very bright indeed. He didn't hate Christmas at all now. In fact, he loved it. And he loved Davis Cup. "I love you," he said, and kissed Davis Cup philosophically.
"I love you too," said Davis Cup. Just then, the dolphin ran into the room and nuzzled Andy's thigh. "I brought him home with us," Davis Cup said.
"We'll call him Miracle," Andy said. "Our Christmas Miracle."
It was the best Christmas ever.
