What fun! The air conditioning repairman came over yesterday to work on our home system, but he didn't know that whenever someone opens the front door, I make a run for it! Long story short, I had a ball! After I darted out, grandma started yelling for mom, who promptly dropped what she was doing (gardening) and took off after me. Then the air conditioning man joined in the chase! I covered most of the neighborhood; whenever mom called me, I ran to her at top speed, then veered off at the last minute! Mom fell once; the repairman worked up a heavy sweat! I got some much-needed exercise. Then suddenly, mom drove by in her car, opened the door, and asked me if I wanted to go for a RIDE! A RIDE, MY FAVORITE THING! So I hopped in, and the next thing I knew, I was back in the house. Grandma was mad, the repairman was panting and drinking lemonade, and mom was scolding and hugging me. But it was all worth it. Real excitement!!!
