Ugly Is in the Eye of the Beholder
By Beth Beutler
1 "I do NOT have an ugly truck!" Samantha Brown cried as her father pulled away from the school. The collection of motors running and horns blaring faded as they got farther away from the parking lot.
2 She turned into the truck seat and folded her arms.
3 "What's up?" Dad asked.
4 Samantha scowled. "I don't want to talk about it."
5 "Okay, then. Could you at least try to smile?"
6 "Humph. What do they know, anyway?"
7 Samantha's dad smiled. He knew she would start talking soon. This was how she typically reacted when she got angry.
8 "They all think they are such hot shots with their fancy SUV's. Well, we don't owe a dime on this truck."
9 Mr. Brown was beginning to get the picture. Samantha had earned a scholarship to a prestigious private high school. Most of the students there came from rich families, and Samantha often was teased about not having enough spending money or not wearing designer clothes. For the most part, Samantha ignored them. She was a good student, near the top of her class. She generally allowed herself to feel good about her position. Therefore, Samantha's dad had to admit that he was a little surprised she had become so upset about the truck.
