I WAS YELLING AND SCREAMING, AND STRUGGLING TO UN HOOK MYSELF BEFORE THE FARMER SEEN ME,THERE WAS NO ONE ELSE AROUND, RICKY COULD NOT STOP LAUGHING, AS HE TOO TRIED TO HELP ME DOWN(I WAS ONLY ABOUT A FOOT OFF THE GROUND) FINALY MY PANTS RIPPED THE REST OF THE WAY OFF,AND I FELL TO THE GROUND, GOT UP HOPPED BACK OVER THE FENCE, AND RAN TO THE HOUSE CRYING AND YELLING AND TRYING TO HOLD WHAT WAS LEFT OF MY PANTS TOGETHER TRYING TO COVER MY BUTT ALONG THE WAY, WHEN I GOT TO THE HOUSE, I TOLD MARIE(MY AUNT) WHAT HAPPENED, AND SHE TRIED AS HARD AS SHE COULD TO KEEP FROM LAUGHING, SHE TOO FEEL OUT LAUGHING, SHE PUT SOME BANDAIDS AND ANTICEPTIC ON MY BUTT(SCRATCHES), AND TRIED TO SCOLD ME FOR JUMPING THE FENCE, BUT SHE COULDNT KEEP IT TOGETHER ,SHE TOLD MY UNCLE ABOUT IT WHEN HE GOT HOME FROM WORK, AND AS HARD AS HE TRIED TO LECTURE ME ABOUT THE FENCE TOO , HE COULD NOT HOLD IT TOGETHER EITHER.I THINK RICKY LAUGHED FOR THREE DAYS ABOUT THAT INCIDENT, I DID TOO AFTER AWHILE.AND THATS ONE DAY ILL NEVER FORGET.
