My parents were going to Lansing, IL to visit our aunt in addition to her uncle.
Mom wanted to help Aunt Louise with the new baby.
I was sixteen in addition to felt that I was outdated enough to stay beach home alone, but mom in addition to dad didn’t agree. They wanted myself and others to go to Lansing, IL with them. I don’t think it was so much wanting myself and others to go, but they were demanding I go to Lansing, IL, with them. There wasn’t anything there for myself and others to see. It was our Christmas getaway, in addition to I wanted to spend the holidays with our friends. Mom in addition to dad were hearing none of it, in addition to I was soon in the vehicle heading to Lansing, MI. It was too cold to go to the beach. It seemed the favorite thing to do there was kneel inside in addition to listen to the furnace running. I had no intention of spending our time listening to a furnace. Instead of staying inside, I headed into town. I met the nicest boy when I was walking in the mall. He was telling myself and others how they were having a Wintertide festival down by the university. He told myself and others when in addition to where to meet him in addition to his friends. I could not wait to tell our mom about Matt. When I got home, Matt was in the driveway. I didn’t believe that Matt was Uncle Bob’s nephew. Matt started to laugh, in addition to I was laughing with him. A horrible trip was turning around. My parents were going to listen to the furnace run while I went to the festival with Matt.
