It was a day before the talent show. I was nervous but all I wanted to do is impress the girls. Now its a new day and After school I would have to go to the talent show practice. I decided to play my forty-five record to practice but it knocked over and lucky it didn't break!
It's the talent show now and its nearly my turn! I'm getting second thoughts about this now and asking myself why did I raise my hand and what am I doing here? I walked up on the stage and the music played immediately. I start to get nervous again cause there's so many eyes looking at me.
When Manuel did a fancy dance move there was a burst of applause. But the tape got stuck and keep playing "Para bailar la bamba." Manuel thought his bad luck cause the audience started to laugh. But then all of a sudden Benny entered the stage and started to play his trumpet. Manuel got saved last night and now he knows not to raise his hand again.
