Today, after school, Chrissa asked me if I wanted to watch a movie with her.
"What one were you thinking of?" I inquired.
"McKenna shoots for the Stars." she replied. "I love watching the gymnasts!"
"They are interesting." I said. "So I think I will join you."
"Great! I'll go set up the movie." Chrissa said as she ran down the stairs.
"And I will make some popcorn."
Chrissa and I settled down to watch our movie, and our dogs joined us.
But personally, I think they were more interested in the popcorn than the movie. When McKenna ended, I went to get the mail.
"Chrissa!" I said happily. "Look, we got a package from Liberty!"
"Ya! I've been waiting for her letter!" Chrissa said.
"What's this?" I said. "A present from Marie-Grace!"
"Wow, that's pretty." Chrissa said, looking over my shoulder.
Liberty sent me a letter along with the package. Inside, it said:
Happy Birthday! A few days ago I got a
package from Marie. Inside was a
letter for me and a present for you. Marie
... wishes you a very happy birthday. ...'
"My birthday's not tell November." I said, puzzled.
"Maybe she got mixed up." Chrissa cheerfully suggested. I don't know, but and early birthday gift was a nice surprise.
