It's a hot sunny day in August.

But not just another hot, sunny day; today is my birthday. I am 9. All my friends and family are over and there is a huge balloon castle in my backyard. We each take turns.

As my family and friends sing happy birthday, my gaze looks over at the pile of presents. There were many presents. A smile creeps over my face. I turn to blow out the candles.

Now it is time to open the gifts. My eyes look over at the big present. I wonder what could be in it. A bike? A skateboard? A dollhouse? I am excited as the box comes closer.

Finally. With my eyes wide open in anticipation, I rip off the paper. It's a box. As I eagerly look for the lid, my eyes look up. Everyone is looking at me. I open the lid. My mouth drops. In the box, there is a big, puffy, bright yellow ski jacket?? There is a big, puffy, bright yellow ski jacket??

I look at my mom. I look down. It is still a big, puffy, bright yellow ski jacket. I wonder where my mom found this. I look outside. It's a hot sunny day in August.
