"So, Ms. Winters, we'll have to head to the airport in 30 minutes, you got that?"
My mom nods. I can't believe we have to leave New York, the place I've always lived. The place I've always known. Just when I thought I could live a happy summer,
the moving truck had to come and ruin it all. I loved living here. Why? Why do I have to move to Texas, that huge state? I had scrawled a note that the girl that would
be moving here enjoyed my room in spite.
Unfortunately enough, 30 minutes is quicker than it looks. Mom spent her money from the lottery on this. She rented a private jet so we could travel to Texas. When
we arrive at the airport, I don't even touch my breakfast oatmeal. I loved oatmeal, but I just couldn't touch it today. I curl up in a ball on my chair near the check-in
gate. Just to amuse myself, I toy around with my luggage, but it only makes me more bored. I slumpily drag my luggage to the airplane through the metal crossing,
hoping it takes off without me. No. Airplanes take way longer to fly off. I take my seat next to my parents. Their smiles don't even comfort me.
The plane takes off within 10 minutes of our arrival. Sure, I'd never dream of causing a meltdown on this plane, but never more have I wanted to. I want to yell,
"YOU BETTER TURN THE PLANE RIGHT AROUND!" I don't even care if we'd crash. Not even the lovely taste of pretzels won't even get my mood happier.
It's sad to say, grumpiness causes sleep, and you know what's the effect of sleep? Grumpiness. I feel even worse as we leave the airport.
