“Okay class, you only have to do the first ten problems for homework and. . .” my teachers voice was trailing off in my head. All I could think about was my birthday tomorrow. It will be the best birthday ever, I was thinking. “Ring! Ring!” My thoughts were disturbed by a loud ear splitting noise. School was finally over. I couldn’t wait to get home.
