A Whole Another Life

12/6/12 2:22 PM

One normal day I woke up and ate and ate breakfast and brushed my teeth like normally. Then I went to school. I was going to school like I really don’t want to go but when I got to school suddenly I was happy. Because of my friends. Then my whole day changed. I was in a happy mood. At school we started with math, the subject that I hate most. But I was still happy because I learned something new and I was satisfied. Then the recess bell rang. I ran as hard as I can to recess. I went down to the lower field to play football with my friends. My friends said, ”Hi Ken or how is it going.” Well I said, “ Hi and also I said good.” Then We Picked teams and the game started. A few minutes later recess ended. I got back to my classroom, it was reader’s workshop my favorite subject. My teacher said to the class,” You can read until lunch.” In side my head I said,” Yes!” Then I started reading. Thirty minutes later it was lunch my favorite time of the day. That day I was buying lunch it was my favorite lasagna. I rushed to the lunch line, it wasn’t that crowded. I hurried up and got my lunch and went to my table and ate. Since I was to focus on my food I didn’t get the time to talk with my friends. Then I went to lunch recess I played the same thing football. Recess ended. When I got back to the classroom it was read aloud. Our teacher was reading Chasing Vermeer it’s very interesting. It was a mystery story one of my favorite. Since we were reading for a long time we were starting to talk a little. It was very disturbing. At that time people weren’t listening. Then it was the end of read aloud. It was free write. Everyone was writing a long story but me, I was writing a comic. It was about a person who finds a dollar and finds a lot of money but when he got a million dollars he was bald. Then our teacher said, ”It’s recess in 3minutes.” So we put our writers notebook away and went to recess. I played football again. The recess bell rang. It was time for class. We did some more math. We were double-checking our homework. 30 minutes past then it was dismissal we were a screaming to the buses. I hurried up to the bus so I can get a good seat. The bus ride was quicker than I thought. When it was my stop rushed to my bike and headed home when I got home my dad mom said,” We are going for a car ride.” I said,” ok.” Then we went. I was reading my book on the way. But I fell a sleep after a few minuets. After


the long car ride we finally got the final destination. It was a restaurant called outback. My dad said, ” This is an Australian restaurant,” He said. We were lucky that we got a seat pretty quickly. We were ordering the appetizers suddenly this person came closer and closer and closer. Then he said, “Hi.” I was thinking, ” Why is he talking to us?” I thought. My dad said, “Ken meet your brother Bobby.” When he said that the world went right past me just like a thunderbolt. From then I didn’t talk that often. But I realized how nice he was being to me. Then I gradually was starting to talk again. Then I got used to my brother. Then Bobby said, “His girlfriend is coming,” He said. At exactly at 6:00 pm this girl came to us and said, “Hi.” And Bobby said, “ This is Erika my girlfriend.” Everyone said, “Hi.” Back. We were standing to get our main dish. When we called the waiter the waiter was wearing a cow suit and gave me candy because it was Halloween. Then we ordered our main dish. Then we started to really get a long. Then it was time to go. Then we said good-bye. Now I wish I can meet him again.
