I was able to buy a present for my little brother’s birthday because of the betting web sites where I play poker. My brother had been talking about a special toy that he wanted for months, but he wasn’t able to afford it. I told my parents that I’d get it for him. The toy was an robot that could turn into a car and then into a plane. I had similar toys to this when I was growing up, but they make them a bit more advanced these days, with lots of lights and sounds and the steps to change them are a bit more complicated. The manual for these toys looks like a light novel.
When I showed the toy to my brother, his eyes lit up and he had the biggest smile on his face. He ran around the house with the toy for at least 30 minutes before he opened the box that was holding it. Although the toy had a thick instruction manual, my brother was able to figure out how to change the toy into various forms in just a few minutes. I guess kids these days are quicker to figure things out than ever before.
My father has a birthday coming up and he’s been talking about a set of golf clubs that he saw online one day. I thought it was a little funny that he was talking about golf clubs, because I’ve never seen him play golf at all. I guess he’s planning to start if I buy the clubs for him. I think I can make some more money from betting on poker and use that to get him the clubs he wants. I bet they will sit in the closet with all of the other presents he’s gotten in the past.
