The Day I Wished Would Never End
I was in the farm at my uncle’s zoo. I saw this wooden tower, and I went inside. It was a labyrinth!
I did half of it before my foot got stuck in a loose piece of wood. I struggled and cried. Finally, a kid came and helped me get out.
I was really embarrassed when my grandma asked me how it went, so I chased chickens, so that people couldn’t come and ask me awkward questions. My sister, Pearl, came out still more embarrassed than me, because a girl bumped into her and she fell on her.
I laughed, took some of the money my grandma had given me at the entrance of the zoo, got some food for the goats, and fed them. Then I went on the Bridge of Insects. The bridge went above the animal’s enclosures. It had a wooden floor with sides made of ropes, and big plastic insects around it.
Then I went to look at the bunnies and the pet mice in the farm cabin. They shared it with the lambs, baby goats, roosters, chicks, chickens, and pheasants. I was hearing chickens, but I was smelling the cows nearby.
It was time to go home. I was sad. I wished the day would never end, though I knew that was impossible.
