Charlie Parker

Yesterday was a terrible day for Charlie Parker. He was a very sad :- ( man. He got up at 8a.m. because his alarm clock was broken. So he didn't have a big breakfast and he was very hungry. He couldn't find his Rolls Royce car so he rode to work on his bicycle in the rain. His boss was very angry with him so he had lunch alone in the post office.
