“Today’s the day,” said Rhonda Ray,
“I can’t believe it’s here!
The moment I’ve been waiting for
all week, all month, all year!
“I’ve thought about it constantly.
It’s been my wildest dream.
I hardly can contain myself.
I feel like I could scream.
“The time is now upon us,
so make way for Rhonda Ray!
The bell just rang for lunchtime
and today is Pizza Day!”
