A story within a story. Doesn't happen, but was perfect for a holiday book meant to share a lesson to all readers. A young man is caught throwing a turkey through his father and step-mothers window heads to the police station where the police share a touching story to help him learn a valuable lesson.

The story within the story centered around Lou who is a person who is always looking to the next appointment and where he is headed next. I have to admit that there are moments in life where I am definitely guilty for appreciating what is currently going on, so even though the lesson was blatantly obvious from the beginning, it was beneficial to read this story to remember to soak up each moment as it is happening.
