A Sour Mood

By Phyllis Naegeli
1     Maria pulled off her jacket with a huff and threw it at the coat rack. She dropped her backpack on the floor with a thud and stomped through the kitchen. She passed her mom without a greeting, plodded noisily over to the refrigerator and forcefully opened the door. Mom could see her long blonde ponytail swinging back and forth and hear her muttering something under her breath.
 
2     "My goodness," said Mom, "you're in a sour mood this afternoon."
 
3     Maria peeked around the refrigerator door at Mom with a grimace. "No, I'm not!" she cried.
 
4     "Then why are you stomping all over the house?"
 
5     Maria turned back to look in the refrigerator. "I don't know."
 
6     "Maria, 'I don't know' is not an answer. There has to be some reason for your sour mood."
 
7     Maria slammed the refrigerator door shut. "I just had a bad day, that's all. Why is there never anything good to have for a snack?"
 
8     "There are plenty of good snacks in the refrigerator and in the pantry. You're just in such a sour mood that you can't see them. Now, I want you to tell me what happened. You were in such a good mood this morning."
 
9     Maria sat at the counter and put her chin in her hands. "I don't know if I want to."
 
10     Mom put her hands on her hips. "You don't have a choice."
 
11     "Oh, all right!" said Maria. "I may as well relive the worst day of my life."
