At dinner tonight I got in trouble for hitting my sister Bethany at the table. I know that makes me sound bad, but I swear I have a good excuse. See, I'm a vegetarian and I have been since I was 5 and I spent a week with my friend Judith from Hebrew school. Her whole family was vegetarian and it rubbed off on me. (And in case you were wondering, I don't get to see Judith anymore because her parents moved the family to Florida.) Well, anyways, we were having dinner and my mom made baked chicken for everyone and a baked chicken substitue for me. Well, Beth and Sarah got to the table before me, and while my parents weren't looking they switched my plate with Beth's! I came to dinner and when we started eating, I took one bite and knew what happened.
I freaked out. I screamed. My mom got mad at me for making a commotion. My dad switched our plates and said no harm was done and I shouldn't overreact to a prank. I wanted to cry. Then, when Beth called me stupid for making such a big deal and said I should eat meat like a normal person, I got a little angry and slugged her. I know I shouldn't fight, but she made me so angry! Then Sarah dumped her diet coke on my plate and mom made us all go upstairs and we didn't get dinner. The twins got grounded for next weekend and I got my whole comic book collection taken away for next weekend. I'm gonna hate not having any of my favorites to read, but at least I'll have the pleasure of knowing the twins won't get to go out next saturday.
Until next time,
