The mother's day present.Jim slumped on the couch On the Couch is an Australian television program formally broadcast on the Fox Footy Channel and it focuses on the current issues in the AFL. This is now broadcast on Fox Sports after the closure of Fox Footy Channel.
The show airs on Monday night and is hosted by Gerard Healy. . Mother's Day was coming up, and he didn't have a present. "How can I buy a present without any money?" he thought.
Jim picked up the newspaper that was lying on the couch. He noticed a large ad on the front page. The local department store was sponsoring a contest. "Tell us why your mom She goes to the gym. is special and win a shopping spree for her," said the ad.
"This is perfect!" thought Jim. He ran to his room with the newspaper. Taking a pencil and a blank piece of paper from his desk, he started to write.
"My mom is the best mother in the world. She always makes a lunch for me to take to school, and she never forgets my dessert. She reads as many books to me before bed as I want. She always remembers to check under the bed for monsters. And she gives the best hugs, but never in front of my friends, who would laugh at me for hugging my mom."
Jim liked what he had written. He copied it neatly and got an envelope and a stamp from his dad. He ran to the mailbox A simulated mailbox in the computer that holds e-mail messages. Mailboxes are stored on disk as a file of messages, a database of messages or as an individual file for each message. The standard mailboxes are usually In, Out, Trash and Junk (Spam). with his entry. "Mom will love having a shopping spree," he thought.
Jim checked the mailbox every day for his prize. Days passed by, and then weeks. Soon it was the day before Mother's Day. Jim still hadn't heard anything about the contest.
"What am I going to do now?" he wondered. He didn't have a present, and he didn't have a shopping spree. And he still didn't have any money.
He had to think of something. Jim closed his eyes and curled curl
v. curled, curl·ing, curls
1. To twist (the hair, for example) into ringlets or coils.
2. his toes and thought so hard his ears hurt.
Suddenly he had an idea. Jim found his original contest entry. He copied it in bright red crayon crayon, any drawing material available in stick form. The term includes charcoal, conte crayon, chalk, pastel, grease crayon, litho crayon, and children's wax colors. on his biggest piece of yellow construction paper. Then he decorated the paper with purple glitter and glued a picture of his mom to the bottom.
The next morning Jim handed his present to his morn. "Happy Mother's Day!" he yelled yell
v. yelled, yell·ing, yells
To cry out loudly, as in pain, fright, surprise, or enthusiasm.

Mom read Jim's poster. By the time she had finished, she was smiling and crying at the same time. "Thank you," she said, wiping her eyes. "This is the best present I have ever had."
Jim grinned. "I have something else for you, too," he said. He checked to make sure no one was looking, and then he gave his mother a great big hug.
