You are 6-years-old and at your best friend’s birthday party. The kids from your class are donned in party hats and on a sugar high from the cake. It’s your turn at the piñata, but things go horribly awry and your best friend ends up in tears. From a child’s first-person point of view, write this scene, the dialogue or actions that cause the dilemma, the reactions from the children and parents in attendance and the fallout. Be sure to include details, such as location, party decor and background music, to set the scene.
