Gail

 

Gail is my best bud. Let me tell you some details about her:

 

  • Gail is not frail. She is strong, and she isn't afraid of anything.

  • Gail likes pumpkin and apple pie, but she prefers them with ice cream.

  • Gail can't help it, but she often bites her fingernails.

  • Most days she wears her hair in pigtails.

  • Without fail, she always beats me at spelling.

 

Today is Tuesday, so that means Gail and I get to walk home from school together. What a joy!
