Penny & Snow

By Corin

In the dining room chat chat chat

The first snow falling.

Iím talking with Penny.  Sheís been

Here two months.  Whiz

I duck as a snowball whizzes across the room

Landing on my momís French horn caseósplat.

I notice my mom standing in the doorway

Throwing another oneósplatóit scrapes

My hair.  She throws one at Penny.  It hits

Her on the shirt as she stands in shock.

We throw some snow back at her.

Dad comes in the room.

Oops.  We are all in trouble.


And thatís how we introduced Penny to snow.
