Donuts Don’t Lie by: Angela Wilkinson Mom was in the kitchen making a grocery list while Dad and Tay-Tay were in the family room.

While I was waiting, I decided to make some breakfast for myself. So, I made a bowl of cereal, some eggs, and a cup of milk, along with an apple. I had to make sure I got my daily nutrients, as I remembered, Hey! I have a game today! As I thought about it; how I would prepare myself for the night, I thought of ways I could improve my game.
We decided to go to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Soon after we ate, we had to return to the convention center for the results. My team and I waited on stage for our division to be called. Right before the announcer said the results, we all held hands in anticipation and excitement. We just knew we were going to win.
