  • Jade! Come downstairs please!
  • I can't wait for the parade today!
  • Alright. I'm coming Mom.
  • Yes. Can we leave now please?
  • Are you guys ready?
  • Isabell. We're here. Wake up.
  • It was Thanksgiving day, and my family and I were going to the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I was so excited. It was my first time actually going, rather than watching it on television. 
  • Good morning guys.
  • Hi Rebecca!
  • Hello.
  •  I came downstairs to find my mom and my sister readily waiting. We all looked pretty good for it being 4:30 in the morning, and the fact that we were going to be on a train for an hour and a half.
  • We were all so exhausted, and driving in the silent, slow-moving sedan, wasn't helping.
  • Jade, are you going to be alright?
  • Yeah, I'm fine, why?
  • We're going to die.
  • When we finally arrived, we got out to meet our friends who were accompanying us. The surrounding setting was all so new to me, because I had never been on a train before. I sat with my mom, my sister with her friend, and Rebecca's parents with each other.
  •  As the train began to move, it also began to shake and make strange noises, and I felt really nervous. When the man came back to punch our tickets, I felt as though we were in The Polar Express, so that calmed me down a little bit.  As it sped up, it began to shake even more, and I felt very uncomfortable because it was so dark I couldn't see outside.
  •  Everyone else around me didn't seem to be phased by this, so I tried not to let it show that it was bothering me. I must not have been doing a good-enough job at it though, because my mom and her friend kept asking me if I was going to be alright. How humiliating!
