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...

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...
