Let's Get Creative!
(This is a creative story about my day)
She tossed and turned all night, flitting in and out of dreams of people dying and seeing her friends.
"Laurel!" Her eyes flickered open. She rolled over and grabbed her phone. 8:00. Too early.
Dressed in a black, white and gray dress, hair presentable she blinked the sleep out of her eyes and climbed into her uncle's truck. They rolled into town and pulled up in front of a red and white decorated building with a big red smiling pie out front. "Well this is gonna be awkward."
The table of 6 was served by a pretty blonde waitress who had trained Laurel on lunch. The experience overall wasn't as awkward as she had expected it to be and the cherry pancakes were delicious.
That afternoon a van full of kids pulled up to lake michigan. They all tumbled out. They picked a spot on the beach to set up their towels, then they dove into the water. The eldest was charged with making sure none of them drowned.
They played, splashed, rolled and tumbled in the water. Then they tramped back to the beach and busied themselves with burying themselves and the others.
By the end of the visit everyone was covered in sand, smiles plastered onto their faces.
That evening they went to see Josh White, Jr. perform in an art park. He was a fabulous performer.
The rest of the evening was spent talking to cousins with bowls of ice cream. She hopes for a better night tonight.
