Every Friday at school is test day. We have our weekly Spelling test and Math test on Fridays. I'm pretty good at spelling, but I have to admit, I'm pretty crummy at Math. Sometimes it's hard for me to remember all those number facts. And if I even look at a word problem, my head starts to spin. But this week, I got 17 out of 20 answers right on my Math test! Far out! I decided to get myself a little treat with what was left from my allowance, so I met Lisa and Sunny after school and we walked over to the candy store.
Our candy store isn't very big, but it has lotsa candy! You can also buy comic books, soda and ice-cream there.
I like coming here 'cos I can get a whole lotta candy for not a whole lotta money.
I only had 20 cents leftover from my allowance. (I get 50 cents every Saturday). Some of my friends were already there before Lisa, Sunny and I showed up.
(I hope that bubble gum doesn't pop all over Danny's face!) Ha-ha!
Cheryl was picking out her favorite sour balls.
Jason had his eye on the candy bars. Boy does he ever love chocolate!
Kim was reaching in the freezer for some ice-cream.
We all said Hi to everyone as we walked in.
Hmm...now what could I get for 20 cents? Sunny suggested a candy necklace. Yeah, I could get that. It was only a dime.
Sunny went to get her favorite soda, Orange Nehi.
I saw Kim and Cheryl checking out the comic books. Kim loves The Archies! (that's a cartoon musical group!)
Don't drop your ice-cream bar, Kim!
Cheryl likes The Archies, too! Lisa got an ice-cream cup.
(I wonder if she knows the flavors match her outfit!) Danny is trying to get Jason to loan him some money. He only had enough for the comic book, (and the gumball he got out of the machine), but now he wants some licorice, too!
Kyle's gonna buy a candy bar for him and one for his mom. She has a sweet tooth, too!
I decide just to buy the candy necklace. I wanna save room for pizza when Lisa comes over later to watch The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family with me. Are there still candy stores in the future? My mom doesn't like me to eat too much candy, 'cos it's not good for my teeth. I'll bet in the future, dentists have found a way to get rid of cavities all together and you can eat as much candy as you want! Wouldn't that be super? Gotta go now!
Until next time, future readers,
