Atara s eyes shone All of ours did type of family so this was a real C c can you help me find them Israel lurking in the back of our miracle Like the jug of oil in the She had no idea it was me She ly rubbing her pinkie minds imagining clear plastic Chanukah story kind of miracle didn t even suspect me I swallowed We ll work our heads off to globes stuffed with little goodies I wish I could have wiped that Ugh who needed Hot Tamales and fundraise I thundered Maybe we floating across pizza shop floors gleeful smile off my face but there Sour Belts anyway My mother was should even start fundraising now And something was activated in I was all smug and satisfied tearing probably thrilled they were gone this year our own brainy mechanisms be open the box of Hot Tamales and Let s do a bake sale cause ideas started to form voices dividing it between three medicine But eighth grade always does a yelled fists pumped containers The Sour Belts filled the bake sale O h and it was also my idea Only no one really remembered that When it was the best idea I wasn t so okay with it but when it was the worst idea it actually turned out that I was very okay with it thanks very much The best idea and the worst idea was born on the first day of sixth grade in a tight circle at recess time the whole lot of us very excited to be back at school and also very not excited to be back at school It was a time of paradoxes you see We were talking about the sum mer and of our very mature sixthgrade status and then we came to a collective realization that we d be graduating elementary school in three years time We need to raise tons of money Chedva said her hands moving in wide and very serious gestures My cousin s class hardly raised any money and they ended up going I don t know kayaking or something like that for graduation trip Kayaking Gosh We need to go somewhere huge like even out of state Gila said thumping her fist down on the hard linoleum floor Ouch Out of state Let s go out of country Let s go on a trip to Israel And there we sat thoughts of even Gila s though she was furious Atara s parents owned a pharma Soon Rivka I m doing homework now I said a little stiffly I started on my math sheet winc remaining two ing at the sound of the scurrying A carnival cy so she would supply plastic med Too much work We need some icine containers Every girl would gathered our wares Everyone was of drawers cupboards and pantries thing original No eighth graders get a bunch and fill them with little excited all 100 containers were being opened and closed opened complaining that we took their ideas prizes and then we d set up a fancy filled with awesome stuff Stickers and their money and now they station at recess and sell them for a hair clips erasers little rubber balls have to go kayaking quarter It would be fantastic It was and all types of nosh The intense conversation was suddenly interrupted by Tzila plopping herself down noisily on Haddas s lap You people have to hear the genius It was foolproof At recess the next day we We stacked the containers in It was a disaster neat rows on a few desks stationed From Atara s large canvas bag in the hallway Shani made a big 100 medicine containers were poster and scotch taped it to the footsteps below the hopeful creak The first thing I did when I came home that night was search for goodies I poked around in cabinets and pantries and drawers and closed Loud moans of disappointment cries of frustration My heart beat faster What could I do they were already gone But still I tossed in bed that night to the familiar words of Rivka s favorite storybook a little tale about distributed between the 20 of us front of the desks and all of us hov funniest story that happened to me Oooh the current of excitement ered behind it What can I say we yesterday Tzila was the kind of that fizzed out of our classroom were the attraction of the hallway person who interrupted conversa door that day was enough to pop We quickly learned that we needed complaining nonstop I had only came a shade more invisible At the to implement rules NO looking one container to fill and I didn t end of the story he saved his fellow through the containers you must want to spend my evening search mice from a sly scheming cat but to his horror he had become com tions with words like you people and had enough stories to last an say 100 plastic bubbles The first thing I did when I came a mouse who never admitted when he was wrong and each time he failed to admit his misdeed he be entire kayak trip across the Pacific home that night was search for close your eyes and choose Sari and ing for something to fill it with so I The story as it so happened was goodies I poked around in cabi Hadas hastily cut out little strips raced up the stairs escaping Rivka s pletely transparent and the mice could no longer see him actually pretty funny The Hirsh nets and pantries and drawers of paper hole punched them once kvetches and bared my teeth as I family was at the pizza shop when I searched my room from top to and gave them out to each girl who parted with my least favorite key day with another 100 medicine containers to fill Maybe I was imag little boy Hirsh wheedled and bottom I m not the sort of person returned her medicine container chain a little basketball suspended begged and finally got a quarter to have random stuff lying around Ten hole punches on your strip and from a chain from Mr Hirsh for a prize from the and I couldn t find anything I was machine at the front of the shop willing to part with Tzila helped little boy Hirsh feed the quarter into the slot and then all I found myself back in the kitchen combing through the pantries Atara arrived at school the next A few minutes later there was ining

Atara s eyes shone All of ours did type of family so this was a real C c can you help me find them Israel lurking in the back of our miracle Like the jug of oil in the She had no idea it was me She ly rubbing her pinkie minds imagining clear plastic Chanukah story kind of miracle didn t even suspect me I swallowed We ll work our heads off to globes stuffed with little goodies I wish I could have wiped that Ugh who needed Hot Tamales and fundraise I thundered Maybe we floating across pizza shop floors gleeful smile off my face but there Sour Belts anyway My mother was should even start fundraising now And something was activated in I was all smug and satisfied tearing probably thrilled they were gone this year our own brainy mechanisms be open the box of Hot Tamales and Let s do a bake sale cause ideas started to form voices dividing it between three medicine But eighth grade always does a yelled fists pumped containers The Sour Belts filled the bake sale O h and it was also my idea Only no one really remembered that When it was the best idea I wasn t so okay with it but when it was the worst idea it actually turned out that I was very okay with it thanks very much The best idea and the worst idea was born on the first day of sixth grade in a tight circle at recess time the whole lot of us very excited to be back at school and also very not excited to be back at school It was a time of paradoxes you see We were talking about the sum mer and of our very mature sixthgrade status and then we came to a collective realization that we d be graduating elementary school in three years time We need to raise tons of money Chedva said her hands moving in wide and very serious gestures My cousin s class hardly raised any money and they ended up going I don t know kayaking or something like that for graduation trip Kayaking Gosh We need to go somewhere huge like even out of state Gila said thumping her fist down on the hard linoleum floor Ouch Out of state Let s go out of country Let s go on a trip to Israel And there we sat thoughts of even Gila s though she was furious Atara s parents owned a pharma Soon Rivka I m doing homework now I said a little stiffly I started on my math sheet winc remaining two ing at the sound of the scurrying A carnival cy so she would supply plastic med Too much work We need some icine containers Every girl would gathered our wares Everyone was of drawers cupboards and pantries thing original No eighth graders get a bunch and fill them with little excited all 100 containers were being opened and closed opened complaining that we took their ideas prizes and then we d set up a fancy filled with awesome stuff Stickers and their money and now they station at recess and sell them for a hair clips erasers little rubber balls have to go kayaking quarter It would be fantastic It was and all types of nosh The intense conversation was suddenly interrupted by Tzila plopping herself down noisily on Haddas s lap You people have to hear the genius It was foolproof At recess the next day we We stacked the containers in It was a disaster neat rows on a few desks stationed From Atara s large canvas bag in the hallway Shani made a big 100 medicine containers were poster and scotch taped it to the footsteps below the hopeful creak The first thing I did when I came home that night was search for goodies I poked around in cabinets and pantries and drawers and closed Loud moans of disappointment cries of frustration My heart beat faster What could I do they were already gone But still I tossed in bed that night to the familiar words of Rivka s favorite storybook a little tale about distributed between the 20 of us front of the desks and all of us hov funniest story that happened to me Oooh the current of excitement ered behind it What can I say we yesterday Tzila was the kind of that fizzed out of our classroom were the attraction of the hallway person who interrupted conversa door that day was enough to pop We quickly learned that we needed complaining nonstop I had only came a shade more invisible At the to implement rules NO looking one container to fill and I didn t end of the story he saved his fellow through the containers you must want to spend my evening search mice from a sly scheming cat but to his horror he had become com tions with words like you people and had enough stories to last an say 100 plastic bubbles The first thing I did when I came a mouse who never admitted when he was wrong and each time he failed to admit his misdeed he be entire kayak trip across the Pacific home that night was search for close your eyes and choose Sari and ing for something to fill it with so I The story as it so happened was goodies I poked around in cabi Hadas hastily cut out little strips raced up the stairs escaping Rivka s pletely transparent and the mice could no longer see him actually pretty funny The Hirsh nets and pantries and drawers of paper hole punched them once kvetches and bared my teeth as I family was at the pizza shop when I searched my room from top to and gave them out to each girl who parted with my least favorite key day with another 100 medicine containers to fill Maybe I was imag little boy Hirsh wheedled and bottom I m not the sort of person returned her medicine container chain a little basketball suspended begged and finally got a quarter to have random stuff lying around Ten hole punches on your strip and from a chain from Mr Hirsh for a prize from the and I couldn t find anything I was machine at the front of the shop willing to part with Tzila helped little boy Hirsh feed the quarter into the slot and then all I found myself back in the kitchen combing through the pantries Atara arrived at school the next A few minutes later there was ining
