Pancakes, Hash Browns, and Bacon It was a foggy, gloomy morning in the month of November. It was November 19, the best day ever, MY BIRTHDAY! I was turning ten. That morning at about 6:ma’am I jumped out of my bed with much excitement.
It was a school day. I picked out my cleanest uniform I had in my closet and the cleanest shoes I had in my shoe box. I jumped in the shower and sang the whole time, until it was time to get out. It was time to get dressed and do my hair.As I was slipping on my white fluorescent polo hire my mom quickly walked in and said “good-morning” and quickly walked out of my room. I wondered “did she forget it was my birthday’. However, I made my way to the kitchen to eat a nice healthy breakfast. I sat in front off plate with pancakes, hash browns, scrambled eggs and bacon! As I was eating my breakfast, my little sister sat in the chair across from me, once again no had wished me a Happy Birthday.
The day wasn’t over yet, as a matter of fact it had Just begun. It was time go to school.As my mom, sister and I were making our way over there no one said a word.
It was as if a rat had eaten our tongues. Once we arrived to school I was excited to see my friends because I knew they hadn’t forgotten my birthday. I was the one of the first ones to get to school early, so I began to form a line on the blacktop over our class room number. As my classmates began to arrive all they had told me was “hi good morning”. I was being to get a little sad.
Everyone had forgotten it was MY BIRTHDAY! The day continued and it was time for recess.I didn’t want to go out so I stayed in inside. My teacher asked me what was wrong, but I didn’t want to talk to anyone.
She asked me once more and I told her that nobody here at school or at my house had wished me a happy birthday. She laughed and said “you are up for a big surprise”. I didn’t know exactly what she meant but I helped a little to lift up my mood. By that time I wanted to go home. The school day was over and it was time to go home. Surprisingly my dad had picked me up that. I walked into the car and once again nothing! No Happy Birthday came out of his mouth.We didn’t go straight home, he took me to the mall.
We got to Stone wood mall in Downey. We walked and walked and walked! My dad received four phone in the hour that we were there, every single time he would go away and the phone far from where I was. I was annoying and frustrating. I ask him who had called him and he would simply ignore me.
I got to the point where I got fed up and I told him I want to go home. On our way home my dad didn’t say a word. Once we got home we didn’t walk in hour the front door we walked thru the back door.
