My mom has asked me several times to put together a Christmas list for this year, and I am still lagging behind. Most of this is because I am trying to be very strict with my money so I can pay off my car, so I have been putting on blinders to things that I want, which makes it difficult for others to know what to give.
Also, what I really want is a dinosaur for Christmas. Not a stuffed animal, or glow-in-the-dark toys – both of which I already have, but a real live dinosaur straight from Jurassic Park and transported to our backyard.
And why would I want a dinosaur? First, why not? It’s a dinosaur, and dinosaurs are awesome.
But, in case you need some persuasion, here are five reasons to ask for a dinosaur for Christmas:
1. When you watch a dinosaur movie, your pet dinosaur can explain to you what really happened.
Sharptooth has a bad rap. He’s actually a nice fellow, if you happen to also be a T-Rex, and not his dinner.
2. When you are putting up or taking down your holiday lights, you can use your dinosaur like a ladder.
3. A dinosaur can double as a snow-plow.
Or a jungle gym
4. You could start “Ride Your Dinosaur To Work Day”
While most of us drive dino-powered vehicles, you could have the only dinosaur-powered vehicle with renewable energy! (Just feed them more leaves, or a cow, depending on what the dino likes to eat.)
5. Dinosaurs are magical!
And one of the first animated films ever made was about a dinosaur named Gertie.
How about you? Have you made a Christmas list (or any holiday of your choice)? Do you have a top-secret gift you are excited about giving? If you could have anything, fictional or not, what would it be?
