|Writing Portfolio: Five Essays on America|
One day last year I was watching a movie and it was about how this couple met and they fell in love and got married and had kids. So I got thinking and wondered how my mom and dad actually met. So my mom was home and I went and asked her how did you and dad meet. Then I sat down at the kitchen table and she told me a funny story and this is how it went.
My mom and her two best friends Judy and Mary went out to a bar down Fanuel hall on a Friday night and it was Memorial Day weekend. She said there were a lot of people there and the bar was packed and that she could hardly even move. Thatís how she met my dad actually because it was so packed she got shoved and she had two beers in her hand and she spilt them all over my to be fatherís lap. Then after my father cleaned himself off and my mother apologized my father introduced himself to my mom and they started going out. So then they went out for about six months until my father had to go to Scotland for work. So they wrote letters to each for a year and then my dad came home and the next summer he proposed to her and she said yes. So then the following year they ended up getting married.
I think that this is a funny story because that is a funny way to meet your future husband or wife cause if that was me I would have been pretty upset if some girl spilt a beer all over lap.
I hate leaves. Not cause theyíre leaves and the color but because they all fall off the tree in fall, and they all fall into my yard. So my father makes me rake them and put them all into trash bags and I hate it. Why do they have to fall off the tree? Why canít they just stay on the tree all year long? Then it would look better. After watching my place in nature for twelve days all of the leaves fell off the tree and it pissed me off because all the leaves fell off the tree I think it made my backyard gloomy and scary especially when it was dark out.

Lunch was over and there was a group of kids including myself walking down
the hallway all messing and joking around and being silly. So one kid
throws water on another. Then we get to the stairs and for some reason
there is a chair at the bottom of the stairs and for some reason I grabbed
it and carried to the top. Then dropped it at the top of the stairs it
tips over and slides all the way back down the stairs. While the chair is
falling down the stairs it takes out about four kids along the way and
knocks them down the stairs to it was a pretty funny incident I said. Then
Chris laughed and said your retarded and said how you get caught? I said
then a few minutes later a teacher comes up from behind me and grabs me
and two other kids and brings us to the office to talk to brother. After I
told him my story I sat in the office for the rest of the day which was
very boring. Then I had to go to jug or detention on top of that and now I
