I got burned making hot dogs when I was 3. I had to go to the hospital, but it didn't hurt that much. Everyone there was very nice, I liked it at the hospital.
It is pretty bad.
We were on the move. Driving during the day, and sleeping under the stars at night. When we got hungry, we ate what we could find.
We moved into a town called battle mountain. Dad was trying to strike it rich with gold, to build our glass castle. We lived there for a while, before we had to do the skedaddle.
We moved to Phoenix. We lived in a nice house that once belonged to our grandmother. Mom became committed to her painting and Dad tried to stop drinking.
We moved in with our father's parents in a town called Welch. One night, while our evil grandmother Erma was the only adult home, she touched Brian the wrong way. Lori and Erma started slapping each other. Erma made us stay in the basement from then on.
You inconsiderate brats!
You can't talk to me like that!
Don't touch him like that!
We moved into a new house on our own. Dad is always out drinking and mom never works. Maureen practically lived at her friends' houses and Brian was always cauing trouble. I became obsessed with my school newspaper, The Maroon Wave.
