BLINKEY THE CHRISTMAS ELF
Do you believe in elves? I didn’t either until the night that I met Blinky. Let me introduce my self. I am Rover, top dog in the Blidet household.
I was living my life just like normal. I got up in the morning, did my daily stretches, had breakfast, took my person for her walk, took a nap, played with my squeak toy, chased the cat, had lunch, took my person for her night walk, had dinner, and went to bed. I did this day after day, week after week. I didn’t pay much attention to it, but it was getting colder and colder.
One day it started raining confetti, I went outside and it turned out, the confetti was wet and looked like whipped cream. After that, it was like the gods were having a gigantic party. It kept raining confetti day after day until it was up to my head outside, and I had to tunnel through the heaps of it.
Then everyone started bustling about and not paying any attention to me!!! I was lying on the kitchen floor hoping that someone would notice me when my person crouched down, and explained to me that tomorrow was a holiday and it was called Christmas. She also said that you get a lot of presents on Christmas. There was a strong sent of excitement in the air. At 4:00 millions of people started to arrive…(ok, not millions just 20,). They started eating heaps of divine, sumptuous food and laughing. Everyone was in a good mood; I even got a bone and some turkey scraps with my dog food!
After my dinner I went upstairs, curled up in my bed and was about to fall asleep, when I herd a rustling noise. I got up and followed my nose behind the bookshelf and there I saw a little, bluish humanlike thing. He was as big as a teacup. He had green pants, a red shirt, and red and green striped shoes, socks, and hat. I had to stifle a laugh. He looked like quite a character.
He curled up into a very interesting, colorful ball and squeaked, “name”.
I told him my name was rover and asked what his name was. After a while of talking he came out of his ball and started getting more and more excited.
After a while I had learned that his name was Blinkey, he was a Christmas elf, he filed my family’s stockings and that he wanted to be my friend. He suddenly looked at the clock in the corner and jumped in surprise, it was midnight and he had to fill the stockings. I said that I would meet him here every Christmas.
He has never failed to meet me there in that room and we have been friends ever since that night when I met Blinky the Christmas elf.
