about this story

One Saturday John got up and was thinking about the all the stuff he had planned to do that day. He looked at the time and realized it was already 11:30 and that he wasted a lot of the morning thinking about he had planned to do that day. He quickly got dressed and was about to walk out the door when he realized he hadn't eaten anything and that it wasn't good to start the day on an empty stomach. He went into the kitchen and thought about what he should have for breakfast. He eventually decided to make himself an omelet and got some eggs out of the refrigerator. He started cracking the eggs and remembered that he did in' have an eggbeater and that it was on his list of things he had to get that day. He figured an omelet would take to long anyway and just have cereal. While he was eating his cheerios on the couch he saw that one of his shoes was untied and bent down to tie it. As he did this he accidently spilt his milk filled cereal bowl on his pants and the carpet. He realized that was his last pair of paints and would have to do the laundry. As he put his clothes in the washer he looked at his watch and saw it was 2:30 and he hadn't made it out the door. He told himself that as soon as his laundry was finished he was out the door to do his errands. Having 30 minutes before his laundry was done and only wearing boxers, John thought about what he could do. He hadn't seen his cat all day and decided to look for it. He searched the whole house and eventually found it on his bed. After further inspection he realized that the cat had caught a mouse, which was no on John's pillow. John quickly threw the dead mouse out the window and yelled at the cat. John’s laundry had finished and he put a pair of pants on. It was now 4 o’clock and he would try to make as most of the day he could. He walked out the house and accidently unplugged the Christmas lights but he didn’t even care. He got into his car frustratingly drove away. When he got to the end of the block his car turned off, He was out of gas. He pushed his back to his house and went back inside. He didn't bother studying for his exam on Monday and just new something was going go wrong and he went to sleep.
