I have so many weird but good memories

I remember one day in first grade, I went to spend the night at my best friend Dannica’s house for her birthday. I remember riding in the backseat of her moms car with her going to her house. We got there and celebrated. We watched Wreck It Ralph while eating pizza and jumping on her litter exercise trampoline. We both slept in her bed together that night. I’m pretty sure it was a king size bed. I remember she was about to fall asleep and she let me continue using her iPad before I fell asleep. I ended up falling asleep while using her iPad. In the morning her mom came to wake us up because we had to go to church. We were going to meet my parents there so I could go back home with them. The only problem was that Dannica didn’t want to get out of bed. She was being really stubborn. She just kept sleeping. Her mom couldn’t wake her up so I tried to. It didn’t work so her mom went to the bathroom and got a hot wet face cloth and draped it over Dannica’s face. That ended up working when the cloth got cold. When we got to church, dannica’s mom gave her her ADHD pill in the car before we got out. Long story short, we went to church and we managed to convince my parents to let me stay with Dannica for the rest of the day. Or for another night. I can’t remember which. When we got back in Dannica’s moms car after church, it was about to start raining. Mrs Mary, Dannica’s mom, kept an umbrella in the backseat. Dannica grabbed the umbrella, looked at me and said, “You know, it’s bad luck to open an umbrella inside.” She then proceeded to open this umbrella in the backseat of the car as her mom was trying to drive out of the parking lot. Now this wasn’t some small or medium size umbrella. It was a big one enough to fit two big beefy men. Of course, there was a lot of yelling and laughter before the umbrella got closed but it was still fun.

Also, when yall were younger and yall went on long drives and watched movies, how did yall watch the movie? I remember my dad got a new car when I was in kindergarten and with his old car, there was a little screen on the dashboard and you could put a DVD in the music CD slot and play a movie that was. My mom also every once in a while plugged her iPhone 4s into the car via the charger and played Netflix that way. In my dads new car, he does still have that screen thing but it doesn’t play movies. I don’t think. I’m pretty sure we’ve tried it and it didn’t work. Anyway, how we watched movies in the new car was we had this really old portable DVD player that I’m pretty sure my mom got when she still lived in Canada. She immigrated here in 1997. Side story: I actually remember going to the court house with my mom when she got sworn in as a US citizen. I was 2 years old.
