Write about a day when everything went wrong.
 
Not all our days are good. Some people even call them unlucky days. Such a day happened to me too. That morning, I woke up with a start. I grabbed my alarm clock and looked at it. Oh no! I gasped in dismay. It was a quarter to eight. I was going to be late for school.

As I did not have time for breakfast, I could hear my stomach groaning. All I could do was just grab a cup of coffee. Unfortunately, my hand moved too fast. It knocked down the cup and the coffee flowed all over the floor.

I did not have time to wipe up the mess. So I ran out of the house with my mother shouting at me. Boy, she sounded really angry. As I was late, I decided to take a short cut. This meant I had to walk through a muddy lane.

As I was rushing, I did not see the wooden plank in the mud. Before I knew it, I tripped and landed in the mud. You can imagine my school uniform and hair covered with mud. Groaning and cursing, I washed myself at a nearby tap. Then, I hurried to school. As I was so late, a prefect at the gate wrote down my name. That was really bad luck! When I entered the classroom, the science lesson had started. Miss Ong was writing on the blackboard. She looked at my dirty uniform and face.

She asked loudly, "What happened to you? Why are you so late for class?" before I could say anything, she shouted at me in front of the class. "You get out and tidy up!"

When I got back to class later, everyone was looking at me. I wish there was a big hole where I could crawl into. Soon, the bell rang for recess. As I was so hungry, I quickly ran to the canteen. Not seeing a girl walking in my direction, I accidentally knocked into her. Her drink flowed all over her uniform.

She shouted, "Watch out where you are going! What's the matter with you?" As I was so hungry, I did not even bother to apologise. The bell rang again for us to go back to class. As I was late again, I had to run all the way to the classroom. Ibis time, I missed the bottom step on the staircase. So, I fell flat on the cement floor. Wow! It hurt my knee. The other pupils standing there watched me make a fool of myself. I felt like crying. My class teacher, who was walking past, asked impatiently, "What happened to you? Why are you so clumsy?"

After school, I just wanted to get home without any more hitches. However, when I reached my house gate, it was locked. I put my hand inside my pocket and realised that I had forgotten to bring the house keys! I had to wait till my mother got back from work. That would be six o'clock.

Poor me ! I was tired, hot, thirsty and hungry. It was only three o'clock. The sun was hot. To make matters worse, the owner of the house two doors away did not close his front gate. His dog came running out. Seeing me standing there, it charged at me ! I had to take to my heels and run for my life.

That night, I told my mother everything that happened. "Today was really my unlucky day."
