“The New Adventures of Matt and Mandy,” Friend, Dec. 2013, 38The New Adventures of Matt & Mandy Did you like that Friend magazine I gave you?Yeah. My dad liked it too, but he just lost his job, so we don’t have money for things like magazines …Dad, I know we don’t have a lot of money this year because we had to move, but can we get Audrey a Friend subscription for Christmas? You could take it out of whatever you were going to get me.In fact, I really don’t need much. Could we just give Audrey’s family most of what you would have spent on me? Without letting them know who it was?I guess so, if you’re sure that’s what you want.I was really hoping for that cool new scooter. She’s Mandy’s friend, not mine. In fact, she acts like I don’t exist.But Mandy looked really happy when she told Dad what she wanted to do.Dad, I heard what Mandy was saying. Would you do the same thing with my Christmas presents? But don’t tell Mandy. I mean, I don’t want her to think I like her friends.You know what I mean.You’re never going to guess what those two kids of ours just did.Uh oh! Do I want to hear this?Oh, trust me. You do.
