“Where do you want to go?” said Gigi.
“ I don’t know,” I said.
“Do you want to go to Target?” said Gigi.
“No, not really,” I said.
“OK, do you have an idea?” said Gigi.
“Maybe, Walmart?” I said.
“Absolutely, not!!!” said Gigi.
“OK,” I said. We are going to Marshalls!” said Gigi.
We got out of the car. The sky was completely blue. There were no clouds in the sky. There was the brightest sun I have ever seen. I turned and saw the gigantic mall: Boscov’s, Marshall’s, JC Penney’s and so many more stores!
We walked into Marshall’s and grabbed a cart. The cart was gray and had a blue handle. On the left there were like twenty people in line to check out. On my right there were about one hundred pairs of shoes.
We walked up to the baby shoes to by my little sister Vivia some comfy boots. The first pair of shoes we thought were cute had a bunny with ears sticking up. Gigi said, “ I think we should ge these for her.”
I said, “No! Those are so last year!”
“OK,” said Gigi. The second pair we found were gray and had gold stars and a heel.
I said, “She already has those shoes.”
“OK,” Gigi said.
“How about these,” I said. They were pink and had FUZZY pink cotton.”
“YES, ABSOLUTELY!” said Gigi.
We walked up to the youth shoes section to find me some boots. There were over one hundred boots. Then I saw them. The perfect pair of black Michael Kors boots with a brown stripe on the top. Then we looked for my shoe size. I am a two. They had a 1, 5, 7, 6,3,3 ½ , 1 2/4,4 and the very last box had a number two. I was so happy I was jumping up and down.
We walked to the women’s sweater section because she was going to her 40th reunion. We found a maroon sweater and a gray sweater. She bought both.
It was finally time to check out. I begged and begged her for candy for about five minutes and she finally bought me candy corn.
In the car we discussed where we wanted to eat. Then we finally decided on Blaze Pizza.
We walked in and the line was really long. After like thirty minutes it was finally our turn to order. I ordered a simple pie which is mozzarella and shredded cheese with red sauce.
My GIgi got a make-your-own-pizza which had shredded cheese, red sauce and turkey meatballs on it. I got a large mango and orange seltzer. We sat down at a high top table. I ate a simple pie except for a GIANT slice of pizza and my Gigi ate half of her pizza.
After we got home my sister and I tried on our boots She loved hers and I loved mine Then we said, “Bye, I love you!” and Gigi drove away.
After I said, “Goodbye” to my Grandma I walked up the stairs, turned out light in my room. Then I walked over to my bed. I opened my covers and jumped in. I laid my head on my pillow and put the covers over me.
I was laying in my bed remembering my amazing evening with Gigi. Walking into the stores, looking at all the shoes, getting sweaters for her reunion. Eating that delicious mouth watering, cheesy pizza. YUM!
