Hello future readers!
It's almost Halloween! I really love this time of year, because it's the start of what most people call "the holiday season". First comes Halloween, then Thanksgiving and of course Christmas and New Years! Y'know something I really look forward to at this time ever year? Watching "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" on television! During the holiday season, all the specials we've been waiting all year to watch come on. I get so excited when I see the commercials for them on TV. I've been working really hard to bring up my Math grade, so my mom said I could invite someone over for dinner and to watch The Great Pumpkin with me! Outta site!
So on Thursday I called Lisa and asked her if she wanted to come over, and she she told me she'd be over right after she finished her homework.
I already finished mine, so I checked the TV Guide to make sure The Great Pumpkin was coming on at 8:00pm like it usually does. I could hardly wait!
Later on, my mom and I had just gotten dinner on the table when Lisa came over, so we sat down right away.
We had fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn on the cob and fresh hot cornbread! Yum!
We were talking about what happened at school that day. Since it's almost Halloween, Danny has been on this kick where he likes to jump out and scare people. Today in the lunchroom, Danny jumped out from behind a table and scared April so bad that she dropped her lunch box! Luckily, nothing fell out. So at recess April told all the girls to chase Danny all over the playground!
We kept telling that whoever caught him was gonna kiss him! (We wouldn't really do that, we think it's too yuckky!) We sure scared him! Cheryl and Melody caught him, but instead of kissing him, we tied his hands behind his back with a jump rope and tickled him! Danny promised that he would never scare any of the 4th grade girls again!
Lisa and I were eating our dinner and cracking up over the thought of Danny being tickled by all us girls! Mom told us it was almost 8:00, and that we could have our dessert in the TV room. Far out!
Mom brought us 2 plates of pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top! That was the perfect dessert for watching The Great Pumpkin!
I like the part where they're going Trick -or-Treating and Lucy asks people for extra treats for Linus. "It's so embarrassing to have to ask." If I were Lucy, I would have saved myself the embarrassment and just shared my treats with him.
Lisa loves the part at the Halloween party when Snoopy kisses Lucy! We both laughed because Lisa has a talking Lucy doll that says "I've been kissed by a dog!" Hee!
Well, pretty soon the show was over ( "just wait 'til next year, Charlie Brown!" ), and Lisa had to go home, because it's a school night. It seemed like the time flew by way too fast, but I'm glad Lisa could come over and watch the special with me. Watching it with a friend is so much fun, and the next day at school when all the other kids were talking about it, Lisa and I said that we watched together. I wonder if there are still television specials in the future. Sometimes the waiting is more fun than the watching. I feel sorry for any kids who miss these specials 'cos they'd have to wait a whole year before they could see them again. That would really be a bummer.
Until next time, future readers,
