“The New Adventures of Matt and Mandy,” Friend, Dec. 2013, 38 The New Adventures of Matt & Mandy ImageMatt and 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.
