Informal Essay # 2
The start of the new year is always joyful and fun. You are able to party with friends and look forward to what the new year is going to bring. My new year's eve was an interesting one to say the least. It started out with my friend Hanna and I going to this guy Sam's house with all these college people. We were having a really good time until the cops showed up right at about 11:55 pm. For the next thirty minutes we had about four cops surrounding the area where we were, and blocking all enteries so no one could leave. Because Hanna, Evan, and I were the youngest people the cops were especially concerned for us. The cop in charge told us that the three of us would have to get a ride home with one of his cop buddies. The three of us were then driven back to my house at about 12:30 in the morning. The cop was nice enough to drop us off at the corner of my street and watched us walk into my house. I then went upstairs and told my mom that we were just stopping by our house before we were leaving again. Luckly, the cop didn't have to talk to my mom and he didn't give us any MIPs. That was nice of him. So then, we called Jill and Dane and had them come pick us up to bring us back to my car. By the time we got back to Sam's house to get my car, all of the cops were gone. Then Hanna and I made our way back to my house and finally went to sleep, but it was a pretty entertaining night which was very scary. All in all, it was the start of a good new year, and was only the beginning of close calls.
