Dinner with Tanice Today was an exciting day for me because I was out of school and my weekend had just started, also I was expecting a special guest over for dinner. The guest name is Tanice. The dinner got planned while I was at school. I asked Tanice if she was doing anything over the weekend and she said no, so I said how about you come over my house for dinner my parents are going out of town then, she said sure why not, with an attitude. She said, “when do you want me over.” I told her Saturday at 4:00 p.m. would be great. Right now I am making sure that the kitchen is clean and I am getting the table and everything ready for dinner. The reason why I am really planning this dinner is to get back at Tanice for what she did to me in the 7th grade. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was in the third row of my class sitting in the third desk and Tanice was sitting in a desk next to me. While I was doing my work in class my head started itching like something was crawling in it, so when I touched my head I felt something big and hairy. It was a Tarantula in my head. I screamed so loudly that everyone in the class heard me and as I was looking at everyone in the class I seen people laughing. When I looked a Tanice she had an evil smirk on her face. I knew then that she was the one that put the tarantula in my head and I was so angry at her that I made a promise to myself that I was going to get revenge on her. What I decided to cook Tanice was a special dish called Bully beef and for dessert I decided to bake an Upside down pineapple cake. The special drink that I was fixing was fish tea. I had put me a delicious plate of food up. I started to cook the Bully beef. I made sure that the meat wasn’t cooked all the way through. Then I got the ingredients for the Upside down pineapple cake. I also added a special ingredient for the cake. When I put all the ingredients in a big bowl I poured the special ingredients into the bowl which was hot sauce. Finally, I fixed the fish tea. When I was done with the meal I waited until it was 4:00 p.m. It finally turned 4:00 so I waited at the door for Tanice. Then, I heard knocking at the door and I checked the peek whole and it was Tanice so I opened the door let her in the house and I said, with a smile on my face “hi Tanice good to see you again.” Tanice said “whatever.” So I told her that the food was on the stove, grab a plate, fix you something to eat and have a seat at the table. We started to eat our dinner and she asked me what is this stuff and she asked did you cook this all the way. I told her that it was Bully beef and that I thought I cooked the meat all the way. Then she said, “I’m kind of thirsty,” do you have anything to drink? I told her yes I have some tea. I went and got the tea. Tanice said thank you. She started drinking then she said yuck this taste like fish. I said oh I gave you fish tea. Tanice said, “that was disgusting.” I told her that I had some dessert. So I brought out some Upside down pineapple cake. She took a bite and ate it and she asked, why “does this taste spicy.” I said I don’t know I followed the directions. Tanice said, you didn’t follow it well enough. She said girl you can’t cook and don’t ever invite me over for dinner. I said bye Tanice. She left out the door and I was so happy that I finally got revenge on Tanice. That was the best dinner I ever had.
