CHAPTER NAVIGATION BAR
Patricia was still in bed, but very much awake.
Patricia was a book worm.13 She was extremely attractive. She has curly brown hair with dark brown eyes and black lashes.
Hastily she jumped out of bed and changed into some clothes. She went to knock on her parents' door. Her father (Mark14 Anderson) yelled "What is it?"
"I just wanted to know if you were15 going to get out of bed soon."
"We will, just hold your horses" her mother called.
Patricia heard movement which met with16 her approval, for that ment* they were attempting to come out.
The only reason Patricia wanted them to get out was so they could make17 breakfast for her. Patricia despized* cooking and she figured that's the way it would stay.
"Pat!" her mother called "Go downstairs and set the table and I'll get breakfast."
Patricia slid down the stairs on her backside and ran to the kitchen. Patricia was a very active girl and fairly good at sports. She grabbed some cutlury* out of the drawer and went to set the table. She found the note Melissa had left and read it.
"Darn" she murmured.18
Mrs. Barabra19 Anderson came down stairs in an old pink robe and curlers in her hair. She was an attractive woman and always well groomed but today was not one of her better days.
"Good morning Pat" she said cheerfully.
"Morning" Patricia mumbled.
"You sound rather gloomy,"20 what's the matter?
"Nothing very important, it's just that Liss was gonna21 help me with my dinosaur project22 and she left this note saying she is babysitting23 Jill at Mrs. Monroe's."
"Well, after breakfast maybe you could go over there and ask Melissa is [sic] she'd help you with the project."
"O.K., I just hope Jill doesn't get in the way."
"I wouldn't worry about it."
Just then Mr. Anderson came into the kitchen with partly wet hair. He had just taken a shower.
"Well, where's the grub?" he said cheerfully.
"Daddy!" Patricia said in disgust, but in a rather joking manner.
Barabra24 Anderson came out with some bacon and eggs served on a Corelle25 blue patterned plate. She slipped it in front off [sic] Patricia. She went into the kitchen with an alomost* identacle* plate and placed it in front of Mark26 Anderson. Then she sat down.
"Aren't you going to eat Mummy?" Patricia said.
"No dear, I'm not terribly hungry."
"Mom, you make me eat and you won't yourself."
"Yes, but you're a growing girl."
"That's what they all say!"
Mark27 Anderson spoke up. "How many mothers do you have?"
"Well, you know what I mean." She grumbled, "and how [sic] I'm going upstairs to get my unfinished dinosaur project and go28 over to Jill's house, O.K.?"
"O.K." he29 said.
