St Laurence O'Toole GNS, 6th Class, 31 March 2009
I felt really embarassed walking through the school on my first day. I met a new friend called Bridget at chess club.
I dropped my glasses and when I looked up, I saw my future husband, a beautiful sparkle standing before me.
“I’m going to get a pencil from my locker,” I said to Bridget. Secretly, I went to talk to Josh.
“H-H- Hi,” I stuttered.
Josh said, “’S up?”
“Do you have a pencil?” I asked him.
“Here you go,” said Josh.
I laughed and a snort came out and then my pencil fell out of my pocket.
“I found my pencil,” I said to Josh. “ I like your hair.”
He took a comb out and combed his hair and said, “I like it too.”
A blonde girl walked towards me.
The blonde said, “Hi Josh, what’s shakin’? Who’s the ginger?” she asked and gave me a dirty look.
I walked away as everyone started to laugh at me.
I went into the toilet to cry and realised that I was in the boys’ toilet.
Then Josh walked in and said, “Is there something I should know?”
My face went the same colour as my hair.
The bell rang and I ran into the door. The door said “Pull” but I pushed.
I went home. I was thinking about my first day and about how that blonde looked at me.
I knew from then on I needed a makeover. When the makeover was done, I called Bridget.
She came over and she said, “Wow, you look good but is Penelope in here?”
I said, “OMG, its me.”...
