“Fine!” called Katelyn , “Walk away. Leave me in the kitchen with n othing to do and nothing to eat. Don’t worry about me. I’ll be fine. Bored, super bored, out-of-my-mind bored, but I’ll be fine.” Just then the phone rang. “Hello?” answered Katelyn. “ Hi Katelyn! It’s Samantha. W ant to come to Hurricane Harbor with Sabrina, Jenny, and I? If you come, we can do all the rides together. My dad can pick you up in ten minut es.” “Mom!” shouted Katelyn , “Can I go to Hurricane Harbor with Samantha? Please, please, please, please. ” “I guess,” called Mom from her office, “As long as your room is clean.” “Yes!” Katelyn said in the phone, “I can go. I just have to clean my room faster than I’ve ever cleaned it before.” “That’s great!” said Samantha, “See you soon. Bye. ” “I can’t wait! Bye!” K atelynn said. She pushed the end button and ran upstairs to her room. Opening her bedroom door, she saw piles of clean clothes she never put in her dresser, piles of dirty clothes she never put in the laundry room, and shoes and school stuff spread in be tween. “Where do I start?” she cried. She pushed her clean clothes into the closet and shut the door, scooped up her dirty clothes and ran to the laundry room, only dropping one red sock. Next, she shoved her shoes and school books under her bed. She didn’t think she needed to organize them. She knew where they were. Out of breath, Katelyn pulled on her swimming suit, found her flip flops, and ran to the door. “Don’t forget a towel!” called Mom. Katelyn took a towel from the bathroom cupboard and opened the front door as Samantha and her friends pulled into the driveway. “Ready?” called Samantha , “Come on!” She had a great time with her friends. They did every ride together and played in the w ave pool until lunch. Samantha’s dad bought them foot-long hotdogs and smoothies. Katelyn was so hungry, she gobbled the meat down without ketchup or mustard.
