The day the Mayonnaise disappeared

Chapter one: Leaving

One day I decided to run away. I had had enough,  my siblings were driving me crazy, and school was getting way to overwelming! I packed up my hobo sack, grabbed the mayonnaise, and I was on my way.

I didn't have anywhere to go, no clue! I could walk downtown and join a homeless people gang, but I was just to lazy! I decided I could go live behind the dumpster at the stake center.

Chapter two: Where is the mayo?

At home, my parents FINALLY noticed I was gone. "Where is Meghan?" Bradlee asked.
"Probably downstairs in her room." Kaylee assumed.
"Nope" dad announced, "She ran away, here is a note I found on the computer."
"Finally!"" I can't believe we had to put up with her for fourteen years!" Mom exclaimed.
The family started laughing and cheering. Adding some music the celebration turned into a dance party.

Suddenly, Dad fell to his knees almost in tears.
"Dear, whats the matter?" mom asked worried and confused.
"She took the mayonnaise!"  Bradlee and kaylee screamed in horror.
"Call 9-1-1" Mom yelled.
When dad dialed the number, the phone rang twice when a deep voiced cop answered, "Whats the problem?" " My daughter ran away from home!"
"I'll ask you one more time" shouted the cop. "What is your problem?"
"She took the mayonnaise!"
"Oh that is a serious matter sir, We will be there as soon as..........."

Ding-dong! The door bell rang
"That was fast"  Bradlee said.
"thank goodness" exclaimed Kaylee.

Chapter 3: Next time I need a better hiding spot.

It's been my lucky day! I just found an old straw behind the dumpster. I sat drinking my jar of mayo. What a great dinner!

There was just one thing that I found kind of strange. There were cops everywhere you looked, helicopters clouded the sky, and a blimp that read, "Missing jar of Mayo."
"I really hope those people find their mayonnaise."

Suddenly a very muscular ninja parachuted down, landing right next to me. In one swift motion he unhooked the parachute, grabbed the mayo out of my hand, threw me in the dumpster, and ran away completely disappearing.

I guess I shouldn't have taken the mayonnaise! I smell like Bradlee's room, with a hint of subway. I also have to now walk home!

That is the last time I run away from home!

Authors notes

I would like to thank Wal-mart for providing the mayonnaise. I also need to thank my parents for purchasing the magnificent condiment.

I hope you have enjoyed this true story that Meghan Michelle Clark has made up.

Schools back!!

Meghan is now in 8th grade, and she was so excited for school to start
Kaylee is in 6th grade now, and she is somewhat happy about school starting
Bradlee also in 6th grade, and he would be happy if it was summer all the time, and he didn't have to go to school..... Maybe its a boy thing.
Bradlee and kaylee are in the same class this year, and sit right next to eachother..... We will see how that goes. Good luck Miss. Hafen, you might need it!

Last weekend of summer

With Jeff's grandma's funeral he had family in town, so Jeff and Bradlee took Jared on a hike up snowbird. Bradlee said it was really hard, and wanted to stop. But he stuck it out and made it to the top. Then came the easy part, they got to take the tram ride down.

Then we had a bbq with the whole family.

All of us with Jeff's Dad, Kathy, Krystal, Jared, and baby Eli
