First, Joybubbles tells a story that Emily-friend told him on Christmas. In the story, a girl named Deirdre and her impatient father go shopping for a dress. Deirdre knows which one she wants but she gets sent into the dressing room to try on a different one. Emily-friend, seeing this unfold, swaps the two dresses, to the surprise of the grown-ups.
Joybubbles then reads the poem "The Little Boy and the Old Man" by Shel Silverstein and the picture book "Walter the Farting Dog."
