Today I woke up feeling absolutely terrible. I couldn’t stop coughing, so I asked Nancy if I could skip first period and have her drive me into school at 9:30 so I could be there before 9:50 which is when my Calculus test would start (the math teacher is crazy mean to anyone who comes late especially on test days). She agreed, and I lay in my bed and drank tea for a while trying to stop coughing. The cough passed after a while and I changed into my uniform and got ready to go. I realized that I had left my shoes, skirt, and backpack in the car yesterday when I changed to go to the bus station. I sat on the couch waiting for Nancy to come get me until 9:50. Then I finally called her and asked what was up and why she was so late and she said she had been detained in the doctor’s office and that I should walk out of the villa, cross the big street out there, and walk a little ways down the road so it would be easier and faster for her to pick me up.
