I wake up in the morning to hear the birds chirping. I smile and get up to go down stairs. I hear a DING go off on my computer, meaning I had a new message. It was from my friend Terry. I open it. It said "Hi! Happy Saturday!". I smile as I reply "Yaayyy! It's Saturday!". I close my computer and run downstairs. I eat my granola bar as I see I have a new comment on my photo on Clickstowl. "Hahaha, dog face and long nose" it said. I roll my eyes as I shut it down and sigh. I reply "hah at least we look better." I take a walk outside as I see the streets busiling as always. I see some snickering at me as I sit down on a bench. I look at Clickstowl and see that I had an edited photo. It was me, but my face was replaced with a dog face. I see the comments and she's a tear. I knew in a few days everyone would forget about it. I was sure. MONDAY, 2016: I walk along the halls as everyone laughs at me and mimicked a dog as they looked at me. (TO BE CONTINUED)
