Good Friend


Helen Hutchinson, 4th grade Badger Road Elementary

A new girl in the class.

She says good morning.

She talks so politely.

She just doesn't get it.

At lunch I invite her over.

Almost forgot

her name is Andrea.

I invited her over.

What a mistake.

So picky.

Maybe I shouldn't have.

She complained.

She whined.

She drove me nuts.

At recess

she wanted to play.

Oh no!

What would I say?


But at the end of the day she was sad.

I said,

"Would you like to be my friend?"
