Lesson 10: what an irritation

LESSON 10: WHAT AN IRRITATION
Story
Addison
I was sleeping in after a very late Friday night and the phone rang. I
Felt absolutely rancid! I rushed to get the phone wondering who on
Earth would be calling at such an hour. Great, it was my mom. I asked
Her what was so important. She said, “oh nothing important, just
Wanted to say good morning”. I made an excuse to her that I really
Needed to go the bathroom, so I let her go quickly. What a relief to get
Back in to bed! 5 minutes after I was totally asleep, the phone rang
Again. It was my mom again. She forgot to mention to me that she was
Calling from her cell phone and was now in the driveway waiting for
Me so she could take me to breakfast. I guess that’s what I get for
Making an excuse!
