The starting Scene of THE RODRICK RULES
September Monday I guess mom was pretty proud of herself for making me write in that journal last year because
now she went and bought me another one but remember how I said that if some jerk caught me carrying a book with diary on the cover they were gonna get the wrong idea well that’s exactly what happened today my brother Roderick caught me with it now that he knows I have another journal I better remember to keep this one locked up Roderick actually got ahold of my last journal a few weeks back and it was a disaster but don’t even get me started on that story even without my Roderick problems.
My summer was pretty lousy our family didn’t go anywhere or do anything fun and that’s dad’s fault dad made me join the swim team again and he wanted to make sure I didn’t miss any meets this year dad’s got this idea that I’m destined to be a great swimmer or something so that’s why he makes me join the team every summer at my first swim meet a couple of years ago dad told me that when the umpire shot off the starter pistol I was supposed to dive in and start swimming but what he didn’t tell me was that the starter gun only fired blanks so I was a whole lot more worried about where the bullet was gonna land than I was about getting myself to the other end of the pool so I just don’t at the bottom even after Dad explained the whole starter pistol concept to me.
I was still the worst swimmer on the team but I did end up winning most improved at the awards banquet at the end of the summer that’s only because there was a 10-minute difference between my first race and my last one so I guess dad’s still waiting for me to live up to my potential in a lot of ways being on the swim team was worse than being in middle school first of all we had to be at the pool by every morning and the water was always freezing cold and second of all we were all crammed into two lanes so I always had somebody on my tail trying to get around me the reason we had to use two lanes was because swim practice was at the same time as the water jazz class I actually tried to convince dad to let me do water jazz instead of swim team but he wouldn’t go for it.
This was the first summer the coach let us boys wear swim trunks instead of those skimpy racing trunks but mom said Rodrick’s hand-me-down bathing suit was perfectly fine she said your friends will be jealous because you’ll be so fast Yeah right they had a good laugh on me after swim practice roderick would pick me up in his bands van mom had this crazy idea that if me and roderick spent quality time on the ride home every day we wouldn’t fight as much but all it did was make things a lot worse Roderick was always a half hour late picking me up and he wouldn’t let me sit up front he said the chlorine would ruin his seat even though the van is something like 15 years old Roderick’s VAM doesn’t actually have any seats in the back so I had to squeeze in with all the band equipment and every time the van came to a stop I had to pray.
I didn’t get my head taken off by one of Rodricks drums I ended up walking home every day instead of getting a ride from Roderick I figured it was better to just walk the two miles than to get brain damage riding in the back of that van halfway through the summer I decided I was pretty much done with swim team so I came up with a trick to get out of practice I’d swim a few laps and then I’d ask the coach if I could use the bathroom then I just hide out in the locker room until practice was over the only problem with my plan was that it was something like 40 degrees in the boys bathroom so it was even colder in there than it was in the pool I had to wrap myself up in toilet paper so I didn’t get hypothermia that’s how I spent a pretty big chunk of my summer vacation and that’s why I’m actually looking forward to going back to school tomorrow………………READ MORE
