641 words - 3 pages

By Lee A. ZitoSix PM. The night starts off with a loud and clear yell from my mom."LEE ANGELICA!!!""WHAT!!!""DINNER!!!""OOOOOOOOOOOKAAAAY!!!""HURRY UP!!!""FINE!!!""STOP YELLING!!!"People might honestly think this is crazy, but sometimes I think I hear my mom yellin' at me, and I yell back, but she never called me in the first place...

Dad says and at once they stop and look at something else to keep from laughing some more. Secretly I know Dad finds all of our antics funny, but rarely laughs to show he thinks you're funny. It's an unspoken challenge the whole house participates in, "See Who Can Make Dad Laugh". I am the unspoken champion if I do say so myself.Katie turns to my Mom and asks, "What are we havin' tonight? I'm starving!"Which kind of sounds like an opening line to a musical number. Instead of everyone...
