“Hockey

One warm fall night we were going to Awana. I was as happy as a bear that found a bees nest. When we got there, the insects were chirping and cars were zipping by. It was a wonderful night. I saw trees and grass. I walked in. I signed up. I had everything I needed. We had chapel. It took thirty minutes. We did verses. Verses took eighteen minutes. Then we got to games. Each game was really short. Then we got to hockey. I made a few goals and I almost got a goal when a hockey stick smashed into my nose. Blood went flying. I screamed! Blood was pouring out. I got a tissue and covered my nose. Them games went by fast the rest of the time. It hurt really bad. Finally we went home.”
