It’s Khalid’s birthday party and he is blowing out the candles on his cake and opening presents. But where did Helen’s gift come from?

Tim:Happy Birthday Khalid! Are you ready to blow out your candles?
Helen:Don’t forget to make a wish.
Khalid:I wish that …
TimNo! Don’t say it out loud. It won’t come true then.
KhalidOh, OK.
All:One, two, three … Hey, well done, congratulations!
Tim:Here’s a card from us all.
Helen:And here’s a present, from me.
Khalid:Thanks you guys. Really you shouldn’t have. Oh, a jumper. That’s lovely Helen, thanks.
Tim:I think I recognise that top, Helen! Isn’t that the jumper your mum gave you for Christmas?
Helen:I couldn’t possibly comment.
Tim:What an excellent idea, giving your cast-offs as presents.
Helen:Well that’s not what I’d call it. I believe the word you’re searching for is “re-gift”.
Tim:Helen, you crafty devil!
