It was a day I am not likely to forget for a long time it all started when my alarm failed to go off and I woke up late. I had to rush and get ready for school and in my hurry I failed to check my bath water and scalded myself with hot water. Then, while grabbing my breakfast. I spilled juice all over the table and wasted valuable time by cleaning up the mess. Then, as I ran to the bus stop, I tripped and fell, ruining fresh clean uniform. I shuddered to think what my teacher would say.
Matter only got worse from there because I saw the bus rounding the corner and leaving without me. I ran back home to ask daddy to drop me to school and got a scolding from him for my tardiness. Luckily, I managed to rush through the school gate just as the morning bell rang, only to run right into my Headmistress who glared at me disapprovingly and gave me lunch time duty on the grounds.
Entering the classroom a little late, I got the shock of my life to see my classmates with their test books out. Our teacher had announced a surprise test in Geography. Needless to say, it was a hopeless case as I had not really revised for it.
Lunch time in the hot sun, minding the children was a real misery. I longed for a cold drink in the cafeteria with my friends but didn’t dare do it for fear of inviting more trouble. Next period was free as the teacher was absent I decided to take a quick nap. when I woke up I look up and shuddered with fright to see my class teacher holding a note for my parents .Soon school was over, I came back to home ,I vowed never to wake up late again.
Nice 1 Yusra but likely my mum is so nice and she alwaus makes sure no one gets too over with me and i love books and love to study so that surprise test is no big deel!!!! MY MOM IS THE BESTEST MOM IN THE WORLD!
