You have to say that kind of like you would sing her first day of school all long and drawn out with the emphasis on "first". She has been beside herself with excitement for exams this week, stopping only to watch the first American Idol of the year which also was cause for great excitement. They went well today. She said it was a "nice experience."
Edward & Maria were sitting here yesterday studying for exams and Edward was flicking around a laminated paper. This went on for about 2 minutes till finally Maria cried out like Lucy Van Pelt, "Stop that! What is that and why is it laminated?!" Edward was happy to get her attention and told her it was a thing with stuff on it. Hasn't he learned a lot in school?
