It was the last day of school of my freshman year. I stood at the doorway of my world history classroom counting down the seconds as Kelcie and I repeated, “Summer, summer, summer.” The bell finally rang and everyone started running to the parking lot. Everybody was rushing to go eat lunch and hang out with their friends. I on the other hand included myself into my neighbor, Taylor’s plans. He asked me if I would like to help him build a slip n’ slide but he never would’ve thought I’d invite my friends to enjoy it too. It was just the beginning of a long day that ended in a disaster. It all started on a sunny day when I went over to Taylor’s house to help him set up his slip n’ slide. He forgot to mention to me that it wasn’t an actual slip …show more content…
They helped make it more pleasurable for me but I still had had enough of sliding into a ditch. I talked my friends into going to my house to go swimming in my pool.

My mom was about to have a fit, but she eventually got over it. My mom had recently bought a cheap volleyball net that one of the boys found in the pool storage box. We enjoyed playing volleyball.

We walked home in shame. I walked into the house and headed straight to my room before my parents could stop me. They call me from downstairs and down I go to be punished. “Allyson, you are grounded for a week.” I was not happy at all. It was literally the first day of summer and I was already grounded for simply lying about where I was. The beginning of that summer couldn’t have gone any
