The white-kid-bus on the way to school splashes them with dirty water on the way to school almost every day. So, the kids come up with a plan to stop this act of racism against the kids for no good reason. They plan to dig a big hole in the middle of the road and fill it with water so it will just look like a puddle. “We could hear the students squealing with delight. But instead of the graceful glide through the puddle that the occupants were expecting, the bus emitted a tremendous crack and careened into our trap.”

My actions made the little boy have so much enjoyment and pleasure at the end and had no fret

Drained of energy, I drag my legs across the gym floor trying to run faster and faster. I keep circling around the gym like a track star in a race, trying to get as many points as possible for my team in this game of kickball. I almost make it to home base when someone on my team kicks the ball like a wild ape and it gets caught by a giant sixth grader. As we are switching sides to play the outfield, the principal came in to yell at some boys who were acting just rowdy and pathetic. Once the principal took them to his office we continued our game of kickball.

Throughout this stage and age I have been told time and time again that I was the worst child to deal with out of all my siblings. Since I was very hyper active going up they saw more indictors of ADHD so they ended up putting me on medication. I would refuse to take this medication mainly because pills freaked me out.
