was one of the best days of my life. let me tell you what happened...
i get to school. it's about 7:25. now, my school is in several million dollars of debt, and i'm in this mindframe when i walk in the door. all the lights are completely not on except for a few random ones. i think to myself "gee, is our debt really so bad that they're trying to save this
much electricity? so since my english teacher is never there until five minutes before first period, i was walking around the halls doing pretty much nothing. so then i hear the p.a. turn on. "hello, students, this is mr. ripley in the main office. due to the lack of power in the school, we're going to ask that all freshmen and staff go to the commons and all sophomores, juniors, and seniors head to the fieldhouse." i go to the commons. (btw, i'm guessing some lights were on because we have an alternate power supply or something) apparently the power had gone out at 7:15 that morning. so they said "okay, at 8:15, we're going to call the buses and cancel school if we don't have the power back by then." ...a little bit later... 8:13
the power turns on. but at least i missed half of first period.
so later, i went to the elementary school because it's a few blocks away. every year, they have a "winter blues fest" where you can play a bunch of games and stuff and win prizes. that night was last night. they also have an estimation table, where you can guess on multiple things how much is in the jar. so i guessed on the gummi bears like i do every year, i've never won. this year i won, and it only cost one ticket to make three guesses. that's 25 cents and i won at least 617 gummi bears if not more, because although they didn't tell what the actual amount was, i guessed 617, 974, and 1,249 or something like that. so there's at least 617
and i'm actually eating them as i type this.
so that was my day yesterday. anybody else have anything good happen to them yesterday or no?
