“Time to open the presents, everyone!” Mum announced. Bob and all of his friends raced to the dining table with great haste. Bob went wild when he saw that he had so many presents. He danced and jumped for joy!
Bob grabbed a random box that was wrapped with shiny green paper. He opened it quickly. It was a Nerf gun. After opening a few more presents, there was no sign of a Nintendo 3DS. He was starting to lose hope.
When he got up to his second last present, he said to himself, “If I do not get a Nintendo 3DS, then I will stomp on this!” He prayed quietly for a Nintendo 3DS and thought, “Surely, this would be the one.” The box looked like the size of a Nintendo 3DS box, but when he unwrapped it, he found that it was a 500-piece puzzle. Bob was furious. He threw the puzzle on the floor and stomped on it. His face was as red as a beetroot. He marched to his room and slammed the door with all of his might. Everyone gasped with bewilderment.
