I sat on my couch and pet my dog. "Okay, girls. I have an annoucement." My mom
announced. "We're going on vacation!" I was completley shocked. I looked down at my
salvation army vintage t-shirt that said "Don't Bug me" with a bug on it and my
distressed (not supposed to be...) jeans with grass stains. "How can you afford it?
Ecspecially with 3 people?" I asked her. "Well that what I was trying to tell you. I
got a promiotion and will be making $200 more then I am now and my friend bought me a
lottery ticket yesteryday and...I WON $7,550!" She screamed. "AHHHH!" I screamed and
hug her. My little sister did too. We have never won anyting in our life. Ecspcially
money! My dad left when my mom was pregnant with my sister and I was only 3 so I
don't remember him. "Where are me going and when?" I asked her. "Well you guys decide
where and we're going next week for 2 weeks for summer. That way you guys can come
back and enjoy the rest of summer. "SIX FLAGS!" My 11 year old sister yelled out.
"That's not a vacation dummy, that's a day trip." She stuck her tounge out at me.
"What about HollyWood California?" I suggested. My mom's grin widened. "I love that
idea, what do you think Lauren?" She asked my sister. "WILL WE SEE STARS?" She asked
flipping through her magazine. "There's a good chance." I told her. "Then I'm in."
She said not looking up. "Then it's settled! Next week we leave for Hollywood. I'm
gonna go reserve seats for the flight." She said grabbing the phone and leaving the
room. I got on my computer to check my facebook. 10 friends and no friend requests.
All my friends were relatives. Ever since 6th grade when the rumour went around that
I wore salvation army clothes.
