Fun Holiday: Come and Take It Day!
By Beth Beutler
1 Melissa walked up to her friend Mark's garage. She took a sip of her root beer while leaning up against the wall near where Mark was sorting and boxing items.
2 "What are you doing with all that stuff?" Melissa asked.
3 "I'm getting ready for Come and Take It Day," Mark explained.
4 "What is Come and Take It Day?" Melissa asked.
5 "It's like a yard sale, but we are giving things away for free."
6 A puzzled look came over Melissa's face. "Why would you do that?"
7 Mark stopped packing a box and sat down. Melissa sat down next to him.
8 "We have so much stuff in our house," Mark explained. "I spend so much time keeping it organized, cleaned, and dusted."
9 "I understand that," Melissa said. "We have a lot of stuff at our house, too. It takes a lot of time."
