Alphabet Soup

Another from Creative Writing class... hope you enjoy

You've been playing outside in the snow for the past half hour, and even with the gloves on your hands, they are frozen, and so's the rest of you. Your dad opens the door and you rush inside to find a slightly steaming bowl of Alphabet soup!

Your mother smiles as you giggle, looking through the letters, trying to make your name, Laura. You finally do so and point to it for everyone to see- even the baby brother in your mother's arms.

Finally, it's time for that first bite and you take a great big spoonful of your name mixed with some veggies and beef. The spoon barely fits in your mouth, but it's worth it as your taste buds party and your body starts to thaw.

There's a cup of hot cocoa beside the soup and you finish it after finishing the soup, yawning and looking sleepy-eyed up at your dad who says, "You should take a nap." You don't want to take a nap though- time for more snowmen!
