My 100-Word Holiday Story: On a father's love

My Dad was always the last person to finish his Christmas shopping. Because of this, he always gave us the most well-intentioned, yet totally random, gifts. Making Christmas lists for Dad was pointless, as it seems he would use them only as inspiration. The formula went like this: One "techie" gift (Dad was a total computer geek) and some smaller gifts. I would often get a favorite tube of toothpaste wrapped in a pretty box under the tree. I miss my Dad around the holidays. What I wouldn’t give to see one more tube of toothpaste under the tree...
