Being me

By: Austin P.

I looked in the mirror. I almost screamed! The person there had a big, misshapen head. There was a pair of tiny glasses. You could barely see them, in all that ugliness. There was a bald head, with shaved hair. The skin was peeling, and there was a sunburn. I couldn't believe that was actually me! I screamed!Ahhhhh!! Then I woke up. Phew! It was just a dream! I ran to the mirror... after making sure I was really awake. I looked in- Oh no! I really look like that!
