"The Power of Carlos" by Marvin Dale.
At first site you would think Carlos is
everybody’s nightmare but you wouldn’t be totally
accurate. Carlos is just a complex little guy. He spends
most of his time in his own little world. Most people just
simply are not equipped to deal with Carlos.
Carlos loves his family but can’t really
figure out why they came together. He feels that his family
was already cool before Mom remarried. He didn’t have to
share a room with anyone! He could turn his music up as loud as he
wanted at any time. Mom put up with most of his stuff but
after she tired of it she would let him know. He would catch
that look from her and that stupid stuff would cease!
Carlos loves a lot of different kinds of
music. He studies music! He’s extremely smart but can
be a real jerk when he finishes his work before others. He
likes sports but doesn’t like to participate because in his eyes
he can never be second best. He is the kind of kid that will
argue you down that the sky is green if you say it’s blue.
Once the whole family went to the mall and
the kids were allowed to choose whatever they wanted from the food
court. After everyone had made their selections Carlos was
still walking around trying to decide. After awhile he came
back with something we all knew he did not like. Weird,
huh? After a few minutes Dad figured out that Carlos had
chosen the item because it was the most expensive thing on the
menu. That’s the kind of kid he is!
