My day started off great! A big bowl of Frosted Flakes, a bright early morning and a little bit of television. Nothing could go wrong… or could it? “Oh crap, where’s my library card”.I yelled in frustration. I began to search through all my pockets and in between my father’s car seats.After fifteen minutes with no success, I turned towards my father, Oscar, with a beseeched look on my face. “Oscar, I forgot my library card at home.

I can’t believe I let myself do such a stupid thing like a writing contest. “ I Promise to be responsible with my belongings for now on.” I told Oscar on our way back home. Oscar didn 't listen he was up front driving, muttering to himself. I tried to give him a smile of gratitude but I was too weary. Every stop sign we passed Oscar would turn around and glare at me. The last glare he gave me I just shrug and smirked at him. When we finally got home; I got out of the car and stood before my father. “Thank you for paying the fines and getting me a new card.”, I said. He turned once to look at me and muttered a “your welcome”. I began walking toward my house bubbling with excitement for what I’m about to read. Looking back at all the events that have taken place made me think. We went through all this trouble just to get a few books. What a crazy world we live
