六合彩,香港六合彩

好向香港六合彩道歉之前
第二天风爷真地愤怒了,香港六合彩有点说话都难以说清,香港六合彩说:你妈妈香港六合彩是擦着眼泪走的你可真是个孝子
几天后风爷平静了一些后对我说香港六合彩之所以那么愤怒是因为看到我那样香港六合彩想起了自己,香港六合彩也很少跟父母说话,只是没我那么过分而已,但那天看到我母亲老泪纵横黯然离去的样子后,香港六合彩下定决心要改变自己了,香港六合彩准备每个周末都回去陪陪香港六合彩父母.
我香港六合彩奶奶的成了反面教材!!
不过想想能作反面教材也不错,到底也是教材嘛,对社会的贡献是有目共睹的!所以我对风爷说,不就是骂我两句嘛,没事!就是你想揍我,我也笑纳.
不过当时我可没那么潇洒.
我一回到寝室就躲在被窝里浑身擅抖,不知该如何抑止住自己彻骨
