A terrible day!
Today was a terrible day! I usually go to school by bus, but today I went by car. It was raining, so my mother gave me a ride. But her car broke down right after we left the house. I was late for school and missed the Math test. I also ate a cake (I usually eat fruits) and it gave me a stomachache. And my best friend, Anna, didn’t go, so I had to sit with Peter. He is so annoying!
