"I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there's gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day."

"I think I'll move to Australia."

"That's what it was, because after school my mom took us all to the dentist and Dr. Fields found a cavity just in me. Come back next week and I'll fix it, said Dr. Fields.

Next week, I said, I'm going to Australia."

"On the way downstairs the elevator door closed on my foot and while we were waiting for my mom to go get the care Anthony made me fall where it was muddy and then when I started crying because of the mud Nick said I was a crybaby and while I was punching Nick for saying crybaby my mom came back with the care and scolded me for being muddy and fighting.

I am having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, I told everyone. No one even answered."

"My bath was too hot, I goat soap in my eyes, my marble went down the drain, and I had to wear my railroad-train pajamas. I hate my railroad-train pajamas."

"It has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

"My mom says some days are like that.

Even in Australia."

(from "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" by Judith Viorst)

Thanks Vic, I can apreciate this post since I teach little kids. I want to go to Australia.
Everyday is not bad.

It was good to have some humor, and at the same time point out not everyday will be sunny.
