Example text

She and Colleen walk next door to the Winstons’ house. I think about Colleen telling Mom not to worry. I feel like I’m the one she should have said that to. Even though Mary Ann is here and we’re going to have a great weekend, it’s a little hard not to worry when I know I have to turn in my Career Day card on Monday, and I still haven’t decided what I want to be. I also know I can’t spend my whole weekend worrying about Monday. I grab Mary Ann’s hand and pull her toward my house. “C’mon,” I say.

Mary Ann looks at the TV screen like she’s trying to imagine the shorts in orange and the shirts in green and the dresses in light purple. “That’s a good idea,” she says. ” I take a bite out of my doughnut. I like when Mary Ann likes my ideas. We watch while Fran pulls a big, floppy hat out of a box. “I even have a matching 52 sun hat,” says Fran. She slips the hat on her head and pulls it down over one eye. “I like the hat,” says Mary Ann. I look at the big hat on Fran’s head and think about it for a minute.

She said not to 42 worry, that she was sure I would think of something over the weekend. “I hope you’re right,” I said to Mrs. Daily. But as I walked home from school with Joey, I couldn’t stop my brain from thinking that Mary Ann will be here soon, and once she gets here, I’m not going to have much time to think about what I’m going to be on Career Day. The problem is: That’s exactly what I need to be thinking about because my Career Day card is due on Monday. And no matter what Mrs. Daily says, that worries me.
