Memories A Creative Writing Piece For My English Class About Car Trips With My Father.

688 words - 3 pages

I'll always remember car trips with my father - sitting in the passenger seat, singing along to the radio at the top of my lungs, having long conversations about nothing in particular.Our car trips were fortnightly events.

We had "our songs", which always seemed to come on the radio when we were driving. If one of my younger sisters was in the car, we'd play the number game, which consisted of shouting out, "I see a si-ix!" whenever one of us saw the number six, be it on a number plate or a speed zone sign. The same thing happened with number eight, except we'd call out, "Eighty-eighty-eighty-eighty-eight!"One day, when I was in grade five, it was just my father and I in the car. It was a...

While her mother blames her husband, and Tim blames his father, Theresa knows no blame.
