is Jason Milner's winning entry.
All dressed up and nowhere to go
When I was small, my two cousins came to visit my family.
My cousin Peter, made me dress up as a girl.
Then he put lipstick on me.
Then he made me put on my sister's hair band .
Then he put my sister socks and shoes on me.
He then pushed me out on the street and slammed
the front door behind me.
So there I was dressed in my sisters clothes', Jason Milner
out on the street and no way go get in.
As people passed by I could hear them sniggering and laughing.
Then my worst nightmare happened.
A gang of lads came down the street.
As soon as they saw me I started to blush.
They started to whistle and cat call at me and call me names.
One of the boys asked me "Are you a boy or a girl?".
I said "I am a boy". They didnt believe me.
I started to cry and kept telling them I wasreally was a boy not a girl.
They would.nt believe me.
I started to bang the door to get back into the house.
"Let me in, let me in" I kept shouting.
Then I started crying.
My mother came to the door.
"What's wrong with ye, love" she asked.
I ran past her into the house crying my eyes out
and ran upstairs to my room.
I stayed in for the next few days became of the embarrassment.
I will never forget the day as long as I live.
