Colleen was having a bad Friday. First she woke up late. Then she tripped on her way to the bathroom and hurt her knee. When she got to the bathroom, her brother Kyle was in there, and she had to wait five whole minutes until she could use it. She ran back to her room to get dressed for school, and when she finally was able to use the bathroom, Kyle had left the floor wet. Her socks were completely soaked from walking across the wet floor, and they were her last clean pair for the week! She decided to take off her wet socks and try to let them dry on the way to school. She went downstairs to grab something to eat before she left for school. Her mom was in the kitchen as she grabbed a banana and headed for the door. As she ran out of the door her mom called after her, "Where are you going Colleen?"

"School, I'm running late!" She yelled over her shoulder.

"But today is Saturday." Her mom called after her.

She stopped and turned around. Her mom was in the doorway with a smile on her face. Colleen smiled back and walked back into the house, happy she wasn't late for anything.
