BEST/WORST DAY EVER!
By: Trissa Person
Thank-You to all my friends who inspired me especially my
best friend, Jaidyn Nelson, and our dream to someday have our
Would you like to be stuck in a snowstorm, stuck in the
cold, or fired from your job? Well, that was the case for Melissa
It was January 22nd for a quaint town in Minnesota called
Montevideo. It was the middle of a snowstorm, and it was also the
day after a brown haired girls´ birthday. Her name was Melissa
Fligensburg. She had just turned 21 on the 21st of January.
Since it was Melissa's golden birthday she received the car of
her dreams. It was a Black 2016 Chevrolet Equinox. It had low
mileage. Perfect for Melissa. Melissa was driving down a tar road
going to Walmart, thrilled to start her day as an older woman
with a brand new car.
Melissa works as a cashier at Walmart, and she wanted to
buy so many things! She was now out of college, and she was
determined to find a job so she found one at Walmart. Melissa
was 20 miles out of town driving to work when………
Melissa`s phone buzzed and decided to check it, Melissa felt a
sudden rush and a gigantic crash. All she could see was black,
when Melissa woke up she looked around and grabbed at the
stabbing pain in her neck. She felt like tweety birds were flying
around her head. Melissa hopped out of her car and saw that it
was smoking, and she had hit a tree. Melissa also saw that her car
had slipped on some ice.
Melissa hopped back into her car, for protection from the
storm, and looked at her watch. ¨ OH NO, MY SHIFT STARTS
IN A HALF AN HOUR!¨ Melissa said ¨Shelly is going to fire
me.¨ Shelly is Melissa´s boss. Shelly is in her mid 30´s, thin, blonde
hair, and is really mean! Melissa started walking towards town
and said, ¨ Oh no! It is sale day!¨
By the time Melissa got to work, she gazed at the doors and
there was a ginormous line leading out of the doors.
Melissa hit the palm of her left hand onto her forehead. She
walked through the doors ready to face her consequences,
where Shelly was waiting.
¨ Melissa, you're late! We have been needing you for the past
HOUR! You are suspended from working for two months.¨
Melissa walked home and told her parents about her job and
her new car. Melissa decided that she needed some happiness in
her life, so she went to Caseys and bought a scratch-off ticket.
Melissa went and checked her card she won………..
ONE TRILLION DOLLARS!!
Melissa used the money to buy a new car and get
acupuncture for her neck. Melissa bought a Black 2017 Buick
Enclave. Also with low mileage. Melissa still had about 900
Billion dollars left so she knew what she was going to do.
But first, Melissa called the tow truck company. They came
to tow her car when someone hopped out of the wrecker, Melissa
finally experienced ‘love at first sight’.
Melissa quit her job at Walmart and started her own
business. Melissa´s business is called Tuxedo Cakes, and it is a
bakery that makes cakes for weddings. Melissa shares her business
with her best friend, Jennifer.
Unfortunately, Melissa never saw her so-called ‘love at first
sight man’ ever again. But about three months later Melissa got a
message from her high school sweetheart, Gavin. They went out
for coffee and all went well, soon the dates started to get more and
more frequent and during a date stargazing, Gavin proposed to
Melissa. They adopted three dogs when Gavin and Melissa
bought a house together. They adopted a German Shepard named
Lucy, a Yellow lab named Hailey, and a Mini Dachshund named
Savanna. Melissa was not a Fligensburg any more she was now a
Miller, Gavin and Melissa Miller.
Their wedding had beautiful white silk curtains and
tablecloths, lilacs and lavender for the flowers. The cake was Red
Velvet, with White Buttercream frosting, and Milk Chocolate
Ganache in between the layers. For Gavin and Melissa`s
honeymoon they went to the Florida Keys.
A year after they were married, they had a boy. His name was
Brendan Kurtis Miller. Two years after that, they had twins.
Those twins were both girls. The oldest was named Taylor Ann
Miller. The youngest was named Elizabeth Jae Miller. The girls
were born twenty-four minutes apart. Brendan grew up to be in
the NFL and Taylor and Elisabeth grew up to be fashion
designers. They started their own line of clothing called E.T. .
Melissa and Gavin had 6 grandchildren 1 from Brendan, 3
from Elizabeth, and 2 from Taylor. They each lived a very happy
