My first day, my first day on the job. I tried to open the black, chipped door, but I couldn't. I was way too nervous to open the door without frightening anybody. Working at Monsters Inc. was to relieve children of nightmares, not give them any. Well it used to be giving them nightmares, but I feel that you understand that whole story and if not go, watch the movie. Its basically a documentary on the company on how two employees changed the whole business from scaring kids to helping them. At every new employee orientation we are forced to watch it, though being one of the most popular movies of all time, we've all seen it. Well back to my current issue, I must have reached for the knob ten times before I actually grasped onto the cold, golden surface. I finally worked up the courage to turn it. The sound of the creaking made me cringe. I started to push open the door and put my right foot in first. I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. I couldn't believe what I was about to do. I had both feet planted into the room. All I had to do was wake up the kid by being funny. Now I had everything planned, but I just had to go through with it. I had the pies in my bag, hoping they wouldn't get squashed. My plan was to throw the pies at my own face, I know it is kind of pathetic but it was the best thing I could think of in the amount of time I had. I switched on the lights and began to throw the pies. I was shocked to see the kid starting to laugh. I didn't think it was that funny, but apparently she did and that's all that counts. Basically, how the rest of it went was me throwing pies at myself and her laughing, then she fell back to sleep. It was all worth it to see the smile on her face as she began to drift off. I didn't want to awake her as I left her room so I tried to tip-toe out as sneakily as I could. I turned the knob and stepped out the once frightening doorway. As I stepped back into the hallway I felt a sense of pride that I made the child smile. I couldn't wait until my next shift, which wouldn't be until tomorrow because I'm a newbie. I was about to check out of work for today but everything started to blur. I didn't understand what was happening. All of a sudden everything went black.
"Steph, Steph, get down stairs already!!" I felt no reason to respond to my mother as I was already on my way down the steps. Once I sat down for breakfast I approached my mom. "Hey mom, I had the strangest dream last night...."
