The story continues from this beginning:
Dumonde wants to do something special for his dad for Father's Day, but his mother tells him that his father has to go out of town to an anthropology conference over Father's Day weekend! Dumonde is stomping around and yelling about how he hates his dad's job. Angry Cloud is having an affect! Dumonde's mother knows that a Hope Plant Baby could help in this situation. What happens next? Write the rest of the story.
Dumonde's mother hurried into her bedroom to wake her Hope Plant Baby. She quickly brought it into the kitchen where Dumonde was angrily kicking the wall, and yelling about the unfairness of life.
Hope sprang onto his shoulder and said rather crossly, "Don't you ever look on the bright side of life?"
Dumonde stopped kicking the wall and shouting.
"Have you ever heard the phrase, 'every cloud has a silver lining'?" continued Hope. "Just because today is Father's Day and your dad can't be here, doesn't mean you can't do something special for him! In fact, now you have more time to prepare a surprise for him!" Hope bounced onto the floor and began jumping around in excitement, "You could do all kinds of stuff! Bake cookies, make cards..." she trailed off.
So for the rest of the day, Dumonde and Hope planned how to make his dad feel great when he got back!

Today was a great day. It was the first day of my new job as a lifeguard. My first duty was a 7-year-old child's pool party. When I found out I thought, "No prob"; but I had no idea what was in store for me. I walked in and it was a jungle of fifteen kids. One kid wasn't on the upright with me, so I kept a close eye on him. First games, then pizza, then cake
your ordinary party. Then things got crazy! The kid I told you about. Yeah I was right. He had a rubber snake with him. He dropped it on the ground and screamed. I turned around and everybody was heading for the door.
"Wait, its only rubber!" I said.
Suddenly they stopped running. The women in charge called the boy's parents and he was sent home immediately and was grounded for a month.
"Thank you, Miss. Lifeguard," the 7-year-old child said.
"It's my job," I replied.
