This is my interpretation of how my thirteenth birthday should have gone. It's about how I freak out over a house centipede on my desk and sadly, this didn't happen????????????

The Worst Birthday


I can’t believe it. I just disrupted my Enrichment class, probably earned myself a behavior slip, and it all got on tape. Alright. Here we go.

The day was going great so far. First, I had Home Ec. and we made mini cupcakes, and taste tested them. Next, for P.E. we just had an activity day and went on an off-campus walk. Then, came enrichment. I handed out homemade cookies. After I was done handing them out, I positioned the camera that I had installed inside the classroom to get a good view of Mrs. Louie’s entire classroom, where we were having enrichment that day. When I hit “record” on the camera and sat down, things went downhill from there.

I was sitting right across from Connor, and I was focusing on the camera, whispering, “I met my goal and I really don’t feel like doing anything right now. I returned my focus to Connor’s desk, and that’s when I noticed the key ingredient to my recipe for disaster right on his desk; a house centipede.

Connor, Connor, CONNOR!” I whisper-yelled.

What?” He whispered back.

Don’t freak out, but there is a house centipede on your desk, but I don’t even think it’s al-” I couldn’t finish my sentence, because the house centipede moved, and I let out a blood curdling shriek.

“KILL IT, KILL IT, KILL IT!!!” I shrieked, and others around me shrieked and jumped out of their seats as they noticed the house centipede. After fifteen minutes of panic, Mrs. Louie grabbed a tissue and killed the house centipede. I had tears streaming down my face. I couldn’t even bear to look at anybody, I was so ashamed for disrupting class.

“Is-is it d-dead?” I asked nervously.

“Yes, Elizabeth. It’s dead,” Mrs. Louie replied.

At this point, I thought I was going to get a Behavior Slip for sure. But, everyone took me by surprise; they laughed. Even Mrs. Louie laughed, then I knew why they were laughing.

“Oh no! I recorded this whole thing on tape!” I laughed. I turned off the camera, and for the rest of the day, all we could talk about was the incident in the homeroom. BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!
