I woke up to the sound of of my alarm clock, not the best thing in the morning. I tried to go back to sleep since it was a saturday, but my silence got interrupted again by a loud bang on my door. It was my mom, she had just arrived form a trip to africa and wanted to show me some pictures. The picture that caught most my attention was her giving carrots to a rhino. I was impressed since she didn't like rhinos before her trip. But there she was feeding him and enjoying it. When she left, I sat in the couch while I watched the lottery, it didn't took long for someone to win it. It was just a way of throwing away my time. When it was time to have lunch, I noticed that the sink was broken, so naturally, I had to call a handyman. When she arrived, I left the apartment to go to my piano lessons across the street, but first, I wanted to get a treat for my mom if she wanted to come visit again. I wasn't in the best mood, since I was woken up to see pictures of rhinos, but I guess the shop assistant took my bad temper at heart and decided to not take my order. My bad mood wasn't changing, but it got worse when I saw someone kill a butterfly.
