The week zipped by for Melody. She studied at school with Catherine for whiz kids because she wanted to be on the team she also studied after school with Mrs.V every day. She reviewed every single word on her vocabulary. She made up her own games to remember things. She prepared two answers if someone asked what's wrong with her. One that was polite but quite wordy, and one was smart-mouthed. In case Molly or Claire asked. This reminds me of a story in my life when my mom was growing up people would ask her questions because her eye looked different, she always had two answers as well. One answer was polite, and one answer that was smart mouth. I would do the same if I had to.
