Christmas Day Writing Prompt

Here's a quick prompt for Christmas morning. Imagine that you are eight years old. Under the tree is a present for you. You don't know what is inside it, but you hope that it is the one present that you really want, the one that you only told Santa about, and no one else. You unwrap the gift and it is the exact thing that you wanted. You're thrilled - for awhile. What will happen to the present when you try to play with it? Will it be ruined? Is it still fun? What if you couldn't play with it for some reason - are you afraid to use it because it's "too good to use" or because you're afraid it will wear out? How do you resolve your feelings? Write 500 words or so.
