It was the day before Father's day.
Jimmy thought his dad would love to receive a gift.
So he went to the bookstore to purchase a book.
"Oh, Yes!" Jimmy declared, "I found a great book."
He pulled out his wallet and cried, "Oh No!"
Jimmy lost his twenty dollar bill.
"What am I going to do?" Jimmy wondered.
Then, Jimmy had a bright idea.
"I will borrow the money from my best friend."
"Oh, YES!" Jimmy yelled. 
Jimmy went up to his friend and shook his hand.
"You are my best friend." Jimmy declared.
Bobby looked at his friend Jimmy, suspiciously.
"What do you want now, Jimmy?"
Jimmy pleaded with his friend.
"I need twenty dollars," Jimmy added.
Bobby began to laugh. 
"You still owe me twenty dollars from last week."
"Oh, No!" Jimmy wailed.
"What am I going to do now?"
Jimmy continued to stroll down the neighborhood.
He spotted a twenty dollar bill near a bush.
"Oh, Yes!" Jimmy shouted.
Jimmy picked up the bill and it was dripping wet.
"Oh, No!" Jimmy cried.
Jimmy ran home and used a hair dryer.
He waited patiently for the money to dry.
He looked up at the clock and noticed it was past six PM.
"Oh, No!" Jimmy wailed. "The store is closed."
The next morning, Jimmy walked inside his dad's house.
'I am really sorry, I didn't get you a gift."
His father didn't say a word. He gave his son a hug.
They took a stroll at the park and sat  on the park bench.
They went back inside to eat and watch TV.
"Do you know what I like best about Father's Day?" 
his father asked.
"It's not a card or a gift I am looking for," 
his father added.
"But spending the time with my own son."
Tears went down Jimmy's face.
"OH, Yes!" Jimmy cried.
