The Best Birthday

By: Eduardo P.
Bolivia, Age 9

I was in a normal birthday party playing soccer with my friends when , the music started and people started to dance. I wanted to dance too so I asked a pretty girl if she wanted to dance. She said that I was awesome and asked me if I wanted to dance with her. I accepted , but the problem was that I did not know how to dance!

I saw other people only moving their bodies , so I thought that it was easy. I started to move my hands , and then my feet , then my body ! After dancing for a long time we played a game called The Kiss Bottle. If in one side there was a boy and in the other side there was a girl they needed to kiss each other! Luckily I did not kiss anybody. I was exhausted. In fact I slept on the way going home. I will never forget that birthday party.
