The pastor broke the silence by making a few announcements about various activities: a dinner at so and so’s house after service, a Krispy Kreme fundraiser for the youth trip, the total offering taken in Sunday school and so on and so forth. Following this was something totally new again. Pastor Neil asked the members to stand and recite the Apostles Creed with him. I’d never heard of the Creed, let alone knew the words to it. So I listened as the voices, young and old, high and low, recited what they believed in and how they interpreted the Holy Bible.
I live in Coral Springs so the AA meeting that was closest to my house was at First United Methodist Church, I HATE churches and I was completely turned off by the idea of walking into one. The meeting was at 7 o’clock, I got there at 6:41pm and walked through the holy doors of Jesus Christ. There was only one man named Phil inside, he was juggling a coffee pot and Publix chocolate chip cookies. I asked him if this is where the meeting was and he said yeah but you’re early. In his mind, he was sniffing out the nonalcoholic vibe I was giving, if it was really my first time coming to AA and if I was really an alcoholic then I would not come to the meeting 20 minutes early.

This was best illustrated when Lucy wants to go to a new dinner instead of going to IHOP, their regular Wednesday outing. Sam orders French pancakes like the ones from IHOP and the waitress says they don’t have that, which causes Sam to start yelling “the customers
It was a rather bizarre day for the Mystery Shack. Mabel and Stan had run to the grocery store early in the morning. Dipper usually tagged along, but had been up all night reading from his large collection of Two-Minute Mysteries tomes and was not going to get up, even if the Shack caught on fire. "Suit yourself," Mabel said, giving him a kiss on the forehead as the two left together. Dipper simply groaned and turned over.
Mom and Dad were with me as we waited for my teacher to come to the office to retrieve me. When she arrived, she was kind and asked me to follow her back to her classroom. I said goodbye to Mom and Dad and followed my new teacher, the timid anticipation bubbling up inside me again. The room was empty because the other kids were finishing up their recess so my teacher, Mrs. Jaeger, introduced me to the morning work that the class did every morning. I was working on that when the students started walking into the classroom.
Then, the women or grandmother’s of the house would get up soon after to make breakfast and start cleaning. Lastly, the men would get up and go to work out in the tobacco fields because it was North Carolina’s cash crop. Everyday Sam would get up, put his overalls on, and head out the door to go to the field. He did not have any
Thanksgiving dinner Thanksgiving should be a day to spend with family and enjoy the company of everyone I remember when I was younger, my family use to get together to cook and help set up the tables. Though, the past few years my family started to distance themselves and it’s getting worse and worse by the years goes by or I just started to realized it the older I get. Every year in thanksgiving every family has to bring a dish that’s when the drama begins there’s always that one aunt that always says she doesn’t have money so she not bring anything just happens to be the same aunt every year. Everyone knows that the holidays are around the corner and gets when family gets together. When I started to check my Facebook I see all those families taking a group picture and mine are in little groups not even talking to each other just with people within their house.

The next day it was saturday, so I asked my dad to drive me to the commissary located on Fort Belvoir, and as soon as I entered the store I got a cart and sprinted to the the cereal box section. There wasn 't a box of Fruit Loops in sight. Not a single box of Fruit Loops, notta, nothing. It was as if there was some mega storm, so everyone thought they should stock up on food. I couldn’t believe my eyes, so I stared at the holes in the thin aluminum beige tinted shelves.
