It was a beautiful day at the North Pole. Everyone seemed to be feeling sparkly today. Smiles were on their faces and there was a extra bounce in their step. Jangle was whistling as he worked at repairing their sled.
The little birthday adventure that he and Jinx and their friends had gone on had been fun, in spite of the little mishap with the sleigh. It was nothing too serious that couldn’t be fixed. Santa just shook his head when he heard the story. Jangle chuckled to himself as he wondered what Santa’s reaction would have been if he had known about the other mishap that had happened, Jinx’s little mishap. Oh you could always count on an adventure when Jinx was around.
One of the best things about their birthday adventure was the food. The Cinnamon Roll cake had been so delicious. It was so moist and sweet. Jangle’s tongue still tingled when he thought of it. Chef Salvo had outdone himself! Its no wonder he was Santa’s personal chef.
Jangle wasn’t sure what Jinx was getting into today. He had said that he wanted to challenge his mind with something new. It could be interesting to see what he came up with as a way to exercise his mind.
Later today they were going to go get some physical exercise by taking a hike. Jinx may run some but Jangle preferred to walk, he wasn’t as much of a runner as Jinx was.
Jangle had finally finished fixing the sleigh. Had reattached the part and repainted it. Now it just had to dry. He stood up and started putting everything away when he heard Jinx yelling.
“Look out Jangle!”
Jangle turned to look and couldn’t believe what he saw. Jinx was on ice skates! He had never seen Jinx ice skate before and why was he out here and not on the pond ice skating?
“I can’t stop!” yelled Jinx
Crash! He hit the sleigh and crack went the new part that Jangle had just put on.
Jinx was muttering to himself as he sat up and took his skates off.
“Well I guess skating may not be for me. Those Olympic skaters make it look so easy! Sorry about breaking off a piece of the sleigh that you had just fixed.”
Jangle started to say that Jinx could fix it this time and then he busted out laughing when he looked at Jinx’s face. It was all red! All red from the fresh coat of paint that Jangle had just put on the sleigh.
