April 11, 2011
Today has been a truly bizarre day. So many good things have happened to me and at the same time, so many bad things have happened. My day started out like any other day. I woke up, showered and got dressed. Then, I went downstairs to have breakfast. I opened up the fridge and a milk carton fell out and milk spilled everywhere. It took me a while to clean it up. After I cleaned it up, the door bell rang and on my door step was an envelope. I opened it up and it was a letter from the girl who lived next door. She wanted to meet me at the park. I was on cloud nine!!
After I ate my breakfast, I ran the whole way to the park and then I saw her. Her name was Nicole. She’s so pretty. I walked over to her and we started talking. We decided to have get some ice cream from the vendor and wouldn’t you know it, after I had only 2 licks, my ice cream fell on the ground. I would’ve gotten more, but I didn’t have any more money. Nicole smiled at me and handed me a present. Ahhh, she remembered that it was my birthday. I opened it up. It was a beautiful scarf that she had knitted. I put on the scarf and we started to walk back home, unfortunately, I tripped on the scarf and fell. Nicole just smiled at me and offered me her hand. Luckily, she didn’t care that I was having a lot of back luck today.
Overall, I had a great day! Until tomorrow diary,
