A few days ago, I was listening to the radio and One Direction’s new song “Steal My Girl” came on for the first time ever. I started freaking out and yelling so much that my mom pulled the car over and made me walk the rest of the way to school!
It was my 16th birthday and I was really excited because that meant I could finally have the sweet 16 that i’ve always wanted. My sister had an awesome sweet 16 at our local country club and ever since that day I knew I wanted mine to be like that. A few days before my party I spent about an hour planning the whole party and I was very happy because my birthday was just around the conner. What I didn’t know was that my parents were planning me a surprise party on my actual birthday which was the day before I wanted my party to be. I was coming home from soccer practice so I decided to take a shower. Apparently while I was in the shower my mom was letting my classmates into my house to surprise me. All of the sudden there was this huge spider and I am terrified of spiders so I screamed as loud as I could. Everyone (including my crush) rushed upstairs to see what all the commotion was. The whole grade saw me in a towel, my hair dripping wet! I’m pretty sure that’s a party no one will forget!
One day when I was in the fifth grade we were doing Silent Reading. The classroom was so silent that you could hear the sound of somebody breathing. I got super thirsty so I grabbed my water bottle and sometimes I gulp really loud without noticing. So I’m gulping down my fresh cold water and heard myself gulping but I didn’t think about how loud it may have sounded. My friend Serena who sat in front of me had widened her eyes every time I gulped. So I stopped gulping, looked around and said “Uhmmm, what?” and everybody laughed at me and Serena said, “You gulped like a fish” and started laughing along with the rest of my class. I was called Fish the entire day. Talk about a “fishy” day!
