A story

for Sadje’s What Do You See? photo prompt. I’ve broken my self-imposed 200-word limit, but I hope you’ll bear with me and read the extra 74!




imageYesterday was Sunday. I like Sundays because we don’t have to go to school. I go to a kind of school though. It’s called Sunday School and it’s at the church. It’s more fun than real school.

The day before yesterday was Saturday. We don’t have to go to school on Saturday either. I had to go shopping with my mum. She was buying knickers and things. So embarrassing. We did go into McDonald’s though and that was nice.

The day before the day before yesterday was Friday. We played football. Freddie tripped me up and made my knee bleed but I didn’t cry because I’m brave.

The day before the day before the day before yesterday was Thursday. We do painting on Thursdays. We had to paint a picture of our teacher. He looked at mine and said ‘I haven’t got a red nose’, but he has really.

On Wednesdays we do maths, adding up and things like that. I only got nine out of ten because Mrs Wilson said twelve plus seven isn’t eighteen, but it is, isn’t it? 

What was the day before Wednesday? I remember, Tuesday. We have a club after school where we plant things in a garden next to the playground. I saw a wiggly worm once.

I think the day before Tuesday is Monday but I can’t remember what we do on Mondays. But it’s Monday today so I’ll soon find out.

The day before the day before the day before the day before the day before … lot’s of days before yesterday, it was Sunday again. 

I like Sundays because we don’t have to go to school.

    “I liked Sundays for the very same reason,” said this kid’s teacher who’s been retired for over twenty-five years.
    (Not nice to jog my memory, Keith.)
