Say "I'll buy popcorn!"
Tell them you'd rather stay home and study
Convince them that the ice rink would be much more exciting
Set down what you were doing, and skip up to your room, ready to clean
Agree, as long as you get to tape the show you were watching (you fake a few sniffles as you go up the stairs)
Throw a temper tantrum until your Mom agrees that you can wait longer.
"Have a great game sis!" And mean it
"Have fun!" But secretly hope she'll mess up.
"I'm gonna win, not you! My team is so much better than yours!"
Tell them how exciting it is for them to be here, and then wish your sister a happy birthday.
Brag about the musical you're going to be in later this year, and suggest they fly out then, too.
Complain. "Why didn't you fly out for MY birthday too?" and fake a few sniffles.
A handmade painting you did yourself, and a $25 giftcard to his favorite store
A $25 giftcard for itunes, so he can rock out on the ipod he's getting from "Santa"
Nothing. Like that little brat deseerves a christmas present from YOU.
