Last month, I got a phone call from my sister telling me that she was coming to visit for a couple of weeks.
I was so excited that I could barely contain myself.
She had never been to Florida to visit and I never thought she was going to come. I wanted to be able to show all of the sights of Tampa that we could fit in. She didn’t tell me that she already had the plane tickets or that she had a rental car waiting for her when she got off the plane. Four hours later, she called me again and asked me if I was home. I had to laugh at her and I said yeah. That’s when she said to unlock the door. There she stood and I saw the convertible behind her as she yelled, “Surprise!”. She told me about the advanced tickets and the mix-up at the airport and how she got the cool convertible for just $11 a day. We spent the rest of the day talking and laughing and then we planned the next two weeks. She wanted to know what all there was to be seen in Tampa and I couldn’t wait to show her. We used the convertible and went to St. Petersburg, Tampa Bay, and Clearwater. We found the time to spend a couple of days at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino. We won enough money to pay for all of our travels and to buy a bunch of stuff for her to take home to the family. I was so proud to introduce her to all of my friends and I can only hope that she will return again so we can find more things to do together in Florida.
