Write about a strong memory from recess.
When I was in 2nd grade, we were lining up to go back in from recess. We were standing outside of my friend Lynn's classroom, and I waved to her through the window. As I brought my hand down, my fingers sort of curled, and I felt something wet and squishy on my pinkie. I looked and saw the remains of a bumblebee!! It had stung the tip of my pinkie, apparently at the same time that I was closing my hand. It was the first time I had been stung by a bee. Believe it or not, I didn't completely freak, but I think it's because I was in shock. That happened 37 years ago, and I remember it like it was yesterday. Although, NOW when I think about it, it gives me palpitations!
