The Time I Broke My Thumb
It’s the end of summer vacation before I find myself as a freshman in high school. It being the end of summer, school and golf tryouts are coming up in the next couple of weeks my friends and I decided we should get together and do something fun before we have to back to school. We decided to go to Sky Zone an indoor trampoline park where they have various activities such as dodge ball and basketball. After a couple hours of jumping my friends and I decided to go to the basketball hoops. All of my friends and I are taking turns doing different tricks and slam dunks when it comes back to me. I thought to myself that I need to do something cool to impress my friends, so I get ready and approach the hoop ready to a do a dunk. I get up to the rim and do my dunk, but my thumb hits the rim of the basket. In the next five minutes my thumb has swelled up to twice its size. After going home and icing it all night and it not getting any better, I decided I should go to the doctors and have them look it. After going to the doctors I discovered that I broke my thumb and would not be able to participate in golf tryouts. This was really disappointing to me because I was really looking forward to playing golf, but could not because of a stupid mistake. I am still made fun of jokingly by my friends for this and is something that will probably stick with me for the rest of high school or even longer.
My dad has always been there for me. He guides me and shows me right from wrong and encourages me to be the best I can be. When I ever I have a problem or a question I always go to him and I can count on him to help me. My dad has really shaped me into who I am today, from my favorite sports to my best school subjects.
I can always count on my dad to help me. If I am struggling in a school subject or I am having a personal problem he is always there to help me. For example every time I have a quiz or test in a subject, my dad always helps me study, or if I am struggling in a class like math he will sit down with me and will explain what I am doing wrong and how to fix it. My dad pushes me to do well in school and I know someday it will pay off.
My dad and I both share a passion for food and sports. We like to go see different sporting events like the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, and the Montreal Canadiens. When we go see these teams whether it be in Boston or Montreal we like to explore the many different cultures within in these cities. For example, one of our favorite places to go in Boston is Chinatown. We have tried many different foods there like Hot Pots which is a soup they bring in large pot and put on a hotplate in front of you and you can cook your own food inside the soup. As well as going to many different sporting events and restaurants, my dad and I love to golf. Every weekend when the weather is nice we try our best to play a round of golf. I look up to my dad and wish that someday when I am a father with a family of my own I can be as good of father as him.
