So I took way too many pictures on this photoshoot… so… here is Maryellen’s Summer Job Part 2: Life Saver.
Josefina was scorching in the summer heat.
“Gotta… keep… going…” She muttered to herself. After all, she was training for a charity run. It was to raise money for people with BAGDA: Buying American Girl Dolls Addiction. It affects more than 50% of people worldwide.
Even though it was to help people, it certainly wasn’t helping her. Her feet were growing weary.
La-la-da! Lo-la-do! The ice cream truck music rang. Josefina perked up.
”Wait!” She called in desperation. “I need ice cream!”
The truck stopped. To Josefina’s surprise, her friend, Maryellen, popped out!
”What flavor do you want?“
Josefina breathed heavily and put her hand on the table for support. Maryellen gave her a minute to catch her breath.
”I’ll give you the runner special.” Maryellen announced. “And well… you’re running! take it for free.”
”Really?” Josefina asked. Maryellen nodded.
She sighed of relief as the cold taste hit her tongue. One she was finished (which didn’t take long- she was starving!) Maryellen asked, “May I run with you?” ”Of course!” Josefina answered.
”You’re a life saver.” Josefina told her.
“Good, ‘cause I have WAY too much extra ice cream in my truck.”
