Like a monkey in a barrel my life sometimes seems to be a random thought. You never know what might be across the corner but you can always expect it. I believe you can expect the unexpected!
January 24, 2008 exactly twelve day after my birthday I went to Wal-Mart with twenty dollars to buy some cereal for my little brother and sister, I was tired ad my guard was down I ran to the cereal aisle I picked up some Fruity Pebbles and some Cinnamon Toast Crunch and as I was at the self checkout , just about to pay I notice that I did not have my twenty dollar bill any more, frustrate I put the cereal back and as I left I thought at least things cant get any worse…Right!?!?!?!?!?!? Wrong!!!!!
As I got home I notice that not only did I lose the twenty dollar bill I also lost my game Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games for my Nintendo Wii! Which made me start to get stressed. I felt like the day dropped from bat to worse. I couldn’t believe that not only did I lose 20 dollars, and my game, buy I felt like I was losing my mind too.
That same day I started to forget about it I started to relax and let life take action. As I was walking to Kings Korner I found a one hundred dollar bell and my mind started to wander. As soon as I go home I smelt a steaming sensational scent of pepperoni. I walked to the kitchen and saw pizza. And as I walked to my room to put other shoes on I say my game right next to my shoes! And that day went from horrible to awesome in just ten hours!
Until this day I have questions I ask myself but cannot answer! Questions like what would have happened if I didn’t lose those things? Why was I so lucky that day? Why didn’t go from lucky to bad? Is it lunch time yet! Anyways, that is why I believe you can expect the unexpected!
