My parents were giving a birthday party for me in the big backyard. It was decorated with crepe paper ribbons and balloons, and all my relatives and friends were there. My mother had baked a big sheet cake-chocolate with pink frosting-and decorated it with "Happy 7th Birthday Peggy." My uncle was carrying the cake out to the patio and teasingly said, "Don't nobody trip me." And of, at that very moment, he tripped over his own feet and dropped the cake, which fell apart all over the place. I ran from the party in tears.
