Student #9 1. In the summer of 2003, I went to go and visit my auntie in Washington D.C.
I never been to Washington a day in my life, so I knew this was my lucky day. When I finally arrived there my auntie meet me at the airport. On our way to her house we stopped by this store to pick up a few items. The store was so clean. I never saw a store about this in my entire life. They had everything you could have thought of. She told me that I could buy anything I wanted and she didn¶t care how much it was. That was music to my ears. I took a shopping cart and went on an adventure. Picking up items after items I didn¶t stop. The shopping cart was filled to the top. When I was done I went looking for my auntie in the store. While I was looking for her everybody was looking at me. I dint really know what they were looking at but I knew it had to be good. Looking around to what everyone was looking at I didn¶t see anything. So I kept walking and looking for my auntie at the same time. Then there was this lady who seems like she couldn¶t keep her eyes off me.
So being the person I am I stopped her and asked what was she looking at. When I asked her she just busted out in a big laugh. I then began to get mad because I didn¶t know what was so funny. Was it my hair, did I have tissue on my shoe, or was something on my teeth. Checking to see if any of those were the problem she stopped laughing and told me. She pointed down to my feet and smiled. Looking down slowly to see what it was, and to my surprise I saw the problem. I had on two different shoes on. I was so embarrassed I didn¶t know what to do. I took my basket and ran looking for a restroom. Finally finding it I also found my auntie. She asked me if I was ready to go and did I get everything I wanted. I answered no and went to go and find me a new pair of shoes. This time two shoes that match. 2. One day I was on my way home from a long day at school. To me school is like a job and sometimes we need a break. My grandmother picked me up from school that day from school and was going to drop me off at my house. I would stay at home by myself until my mother came home from work. On
my way home I and my grandmother had talking about me and my mother moving back in with her. My grandfather just passed and she was getting lonely. I told her that I didn¶t mind as long as I had my own room. Pulling up to my house I felt a strange feeling inside of me. I really didn¶t know what the feeling was but I know it was the first time I felt like this. Saying goodbye to my grandmother I walked into my dark house and turned off the alarm. After that I wanted into the living room and turned on the lights. I checked for everything and made sure no one was in the house. Screaming hello, hello to the top of my lungs I didn¶t hear a respond. Relaxing and hopping on the couch I turned the TV on and started to watch my favorite movie. The feeling I had earlier was in inside of me. I tried to shake it off but I couldn¶t. The feeling was like someone was watching me. Trying to be brave I got up and walked around the house to make sure everything was safe. Walking very slowly I made it to my room. Turning on the lights and to my surprise I see a mess. My bed was flipped over and my clothes were everywhere.
At that moment I didn¶t know what to do. I ran back into the living room to get the house phone and call 911. Telling them what happen and all of the details they asked me a very important question. The lady asked if the person who robbed us was still in the house. My eyes got big and I grabbed my purse and ran outside. Ten minutes later the police came and save the day. They called my grandmother to let them know what happen and to tell her that I was ok. After that accident I never stayed at home alone, and guess what? We moved in with my grandmother that next day. That was the worst day of my entire life. 3. When I was little I used to go to the doctor a lot. I really didn¶t know why but I know that I went a lot. I disliked the doctor a lot because I always thought that they were trying to kill me. At that age I didn¶t understand why we had to get shoots every time we went. So one day my mother took me for my regular check up. Like in the beginning I said that I dislike the doctor. Everything was going well until he called in the nurse. I then knew that this was the moment of doom. She came in he whispered something in her
ear and then she left. I looked at my mother and she looked away because she knew I was about to cry. All of a sudden the nurse came in with three needles. If you thought I couldn¶t scream then well I did that day. Seeing those needles was like seeing the devil in person. Tears started rolling down my face and the doctor knew then that he was in big trouble. Putting alcohol on my arm I knew it was time for the big needles. The doctor took my legs and crossed them so I wouldn¶t move. Crying louder and louder my mother came to my rescue. One, two, three counting down for every needle when they stuck me. I couldn¶t take it anymore so on the third one I kicked the doctor right between his legs. He screamed and told my mother that I needed to find another doctor. Since then my mother say no to all shoots unless it is life threatening.
AM I LYING?
#1 One day, I when I still in middle school, I was getting ready for the day ,i hadn¶t gotten my clothes ready the day before so I rushed to find what I was going to wear and I was rushing. I ironed my clothes and put them on. That morning I was taking my time getting ready, listening to music and playing around. I did not realize what time it was. It was almost 6¶oclock and the school bus came at 6:30. Finally I¶m almost done getting ready, I just needed to put my shoes on. I looked at the time and it was 6:25 and my mom said that she could hear the bus coming. I quickly grabbed my shoes, put them on and ran out the door. I caught the bus and I was home free, so I thought. When I got to school it was a normal day like any other, I ate breakfast and walked to my class.
I got it homeroom and noticed that I was wearing two different of shoes! One white air force 1 shoe and the other was a dingy white Allen Iverson shoe. No one had noticed so I was going to play it off. That day I walked very fast and covered the ugly shoe with my jacket. #2 One day when I was playing football center all for my community center, we decided to play a quick game during practice. We went to the field and got ready to play, it was the middle of spring so the grass was green and there were bugs everywhere especially dragonflies, we got ready to play and put on all our pads and everything, even the helmets. During that game I played center so I had to hike the ball to the quarterback. The game was almost over we were up by one touchdown and had the ball. The quarterback was about the snap the ball when... a huge dragonfly flew into my helmet, it was hitting me against my face. I panicked and fell backwards. The dragonfly went into my mouth and got lodged
into my esophagus, I was on the ground and I couldn¶t breathe my friend just stood there looking at me with their mouths open finally someone tried to help me they say me up and hit me on the back. After several attempts, I coughed the dragonfly up and it flew away. Till this day I am afraid of dragonflies.
#3 Last summer I went on this trip with a group that im in we were going to Michigan and I was very excited. We met up at the gym and loaded on the bus. The trip there was exhausting. Sixteen hours of driving and it felt like we had walked the whole way we stopped every once in a while we would stop to get something to eat and use the bathroom. We were almost there the place was almost 60 miles away. On our last stop, we went to a restaurant, after we ate some people still sat in the restaurant and others went to visit the other stores in the plaza me and some friends went to the family dollar to get things
that we had forgotten to my before we got on the trip. My friends had already checked out and they were waiting on me while I was checking out the bus was boarded and set off for the rest of the trip. We had been left at the family dollar with our bags of stuff standing outside looking stupid. 15 min later they noticed that we weren¶t there and came back for us.
