It was Christmas morning. I opened up my first gift. It was a blanket. I loved it. But I didn’t know what to do with it so I went into my room. Then a magical thing — my blanket was a magic carpet. I rode it to this weird town. Everything was made out of blankets. But the people were stuffed animals. It was called Blanket Town.
“Where am I?” I said.
There was the mayor. He said this was Blanket Town.
“Why are the people made out of stuffed animals?” I asked.
The mayor said this town is supposed to be like the stuff you need to go to bed with. When you get a blanket you sleep with it.
“Ohh,” I said. “That’s what you do with a blanket.”
“Yes,” he said.
Soon it was nighttime. “I got to go,” I said.
“Bye,” the mayor said.
So when I got home I used my blanket and went to sleep.
