The Starting Scene of THE LAST STRAW
January New Year’s Day you know, how you’re supposed to come up with a list of resolutions at the beginning of the
year to try to make yourself a better person, well the problem is it’s not easy for me to think of ways to improve myself, because I’m already pretty much one of the best people I know, so this year my resolution is to try and help other people improve but the thing. I’m finding out is that some people don’t really appreciate it when you’re trying to be helpful like my mom. I thought she’d be grateful when I let her know she should work on chewing her potato chips more quietly one thing I noticed right off the bat is that the people in my family are doing a lousy job sticking to their New Year’s resolutions. Mom said she was gonna start going to the gym today but she spent the whole afternoon watching TV and dad said he was gonna go on a strict diet but after dinner, I caught him out in the garage stuffing his face with brownies smorc smorc .
Even my little brother Manny couldn’t stick with his resolution this morning he told everyone that he’s a big boy and he’s given up his pacifier for good then he threw his favorite binky in the trash. Mom and Dad clapped and clapped. Well that New Year’s resolution didn’t even last a full minute, he drove right into the garbage can and sucked sucked sucked away. The only person in my family who didn’t come up with a resolution is my older brother Rodrick and that’s a pity because his list should be about a mile and a half long so I decided to come up with a program to help Rodrick be a better person.
I called my plan three strikes and you’re out the basic idea was that every time I saw Roderick messing up I’d mark a little X on his chart. Well, Roderick got all three strikes before I even had a chance to decide what you’re out meant it only took three punches punch punch punch. They hurt anyway I’m starting to wonder if I should just bag my resolution too it’s a lot of work and so far I haven’t really made any progress besides after I reminded mom for like the billionth time to stop chewing her potato chips so loud she made a really good point she said everyone can’t be as perfect as you Gregory and from what I’ve seen so far. I think she’s right.
Thursday dad is giving this diet thing another try and that’s bad news for me he’s gone about three days without eating any chocolate and he’s been super cranky the other day after dad woke me up and told me to get ready for school I accidentally fell back asleep believe me that’s the last time I’ll make that mistake he was furious and yanked off my covers yelling wake up leaving me to freeze part of the problem is that dad always wakes me up before moms out of the shower .So I know that I still have like ten more minutes before I need to get out of bed for real yesterday.
I came up with a pretty good way to get some extra sleep time without making dad mad after he woke me up I took all of my blankets down the hall with me and waited outside the bathroom for my turn in the shower then I lay down right on top of the heater vent and when the furnace was blowing the experience was even better than being in bed ah the problem was the heat only stayed on for about five minutes at a time so when the furnace wasn’t running just lying there on this cold piece of metal not good this morning while I was waiting for mom to be done with her shower I remembered someone gave her a bathrobe for Christmas so I went into her closet and got it let me just say that was one of the smartest moves I’ve ever made wearing that thing was like being wrapped in a big fluffy towel that just came out of the dryer in fact I liked it so much I even wore it after my shower I think dad might have been jealous he didn’t come up with a robe idea first because when I came to the kitchen table he seemed extra grumpy.
I tell you women have the right idea with this bathrobe thing now I’m wondering what else I’m missing out on I just wish I had asked for my own bathrobe for Christmas because I’m sure mom is gonna make me give hers back I struck out on gifts again this year I knew I was in for a rough day when I came downstairs on Christmas morning and the only presence in my stocking were a stick of deodorant and a travel dictionary and Manny got all sorts of toys I guess once you’re in middle school grown-ups decide you’re too old for toys or anything that’s actually fun but then they still expect you to be all excited when you open up lame gifts they get you like my grandma got me this book math is rad she actually said it’ll help you get a jump start on algebra most of my gifts this year were books or clothes the closest thing.
I got to a toy was a present from uncle Charlie when I unwrapped uncle Charlie’s gift I didn’t even know what it was supposed to be it was this big plastic ring with a net attached to it uncle Charlie explained that it was a laundry hoop from my bedroom he said I was supposed to hang the laundry hoop on the back of my door and it would make putting away my dirty loads fun like playing basketball at first I thought it was a joke but then I realized uncle Charlie was serious so I had to explain to him that I don’t actually do my own laundry I told him I just throw my dirty clothes on the floor and mom picks them up and takes them downstairs to the laundry room then a few days later everything comes back to me in nice folded piles I told uncle Charlie he should just return the laundry hoop and give me cash so I could buy something I’d actually use that’s when mom spoke up she told Uncle Charlie she thought the laundry hoop was a great idea then she said that from now on I’d be doing my own laundry so basically it ends up that uncle Charlie got me a chore for Christmas it really stinks that I got such crummy gifts this year ………….
