“Happy birthday!” my friends shouted when I walked into the park. I looked at all of my friends and a few balloons labeled Happy Birthday! I beamed when I saw my two favorite fictional characters – Mallory and Junie B Jones. This was going to be the best party ever!
Our first activity was Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Since I was the birthday girl I got to go first. I had to blindfold my eyes and pin the donkey’s tail. I picked Mallory to go next and that’s when the trouble started. Mallory had trouble seeing. I told her that’s how the game works. Then Mallory peeked just a little.
Junie B. shouted, “Cheater! She cheated.”
“Oh No!” I said to myself, “If I don’t calm Junie B down she won’t stay.” I went over to Junie B and said, “Let’s play bobbing for apples.” Mallory wanted to play too.
Junie B said, “No, Michelle is my friend, not yours.”
I told Junie B “I am both of your friends and I want you two to be friends too. Can we all just get along and play the next game?”
Junie B said, “I’m not playing with her until she stops cheating.”
Mallory said, “I’m sorry I peeked, I promise I won’t cheat again.”
We all bobbed for apples and Mallory didn’t cheat. Junie B was happy and we all were friends. We ate cake, opened presents and won prizes. Everyone had a good time. My party was the best party ever.
