My last birthday
(Sent by Florencia, a student from Buenos Aires, Argentina)
This birthday should
had have been different. Everything was planned. I had made sure no detail could be lost. I was really happy, I had no doubt it would be an excellent day! I was wrong.
Everything began in the morning. I got up so early that all my family was still asleep. I waited for an hour, but it seemed nobody was going to wake up. Finally I went to work alone without saying hello to anyone.
in at the office, all my friends had forgotten it was my birthday. First, I thought it was a joke but it was not. I was really disappointment disappointed.
Later on, I came back home. I wish they had prepared something special for having dinner. We ate hamburgers because my mum did not want to cook. As soon as they finished, they went to bed and I stayed alone in the dinning room.
Finally, I decided to give up the idea of celebrating my birthday. I went to bed and saw a movie. Unfortunately, it was just another simple day.
