I hit the jack-pot! I was in the bus line… When Samantha McGuire asked anyone if they would like to trade with her. I was open to anything, so I told her about my floral print, pink expandable notebook. She liked it and traded me a generic Cola soda for it. It was awesome. I was thrilled. When I got to the bus line I asked Samantha if she would like it. She immediately begged. Knowing that she had some great things in her room, I traded with her. She drank it, and treated me like a goddess. (She loves Coke-A-Cola) She didn’t have anything worth while in her backpack but she promised she would give me something after swim practice. So… I was patient. When we got home, I think I might have been half dead. It was late. So, I forgot about the whole trade in general. Later today, during our five minute recess, I reminded Samantha that she owed me. So after school, me and her are going to go rummaging through her room. I’m going to find something great! I mean after all, in terms of middle school; a soda is a big deal. Especially to Sam. I’ll be back with more news. This has been Madelyn reporting from TMJ4. Just kidding. See Ya!
