The Babysitter From Hell Essay

1001 words - 5 pages

The Babysitter from Hell I remember it like it was yesterday. When I was about five years old, my parents hired a babysitter for me. My parents were going out to dinner and then to a party afterwards. I was excited because they would be out very, very late (like, until midnight). I had it all planned out.
