“When I got home, my brother asked me who was nominated in my class and I was like ‘I don’t know, who is yours?’. Then he was like ‘Um, I asked you first’ and then I said ‘me’ and then he was like ‘OMG I was nominated too!’ Then I was like ‘This is going to be the best Winter Ball ever’. My dad was like ‘One of you has to drop out because that is just weird’ and then I made "Vote Weiser for Winter Ball King and Queen" signs and put them all over the house. Then I made cookies because I was so excited.“
