…but it was the wrong colour!
I had come first in the spelling test and my parents said they were going to buy me a dog and a cat. I told them I wanted a white cat and a black dog, and they left to buy it. While they were out shopping for the pets, I played games. After about an hour they came back with a nice looking box with a ribbon, and I heard yapping and meowing. They told me to close my eyes and I saw a brown cat and a vomit green dog. They were cute, but it was the wrong colour!
