This is an original short story (less than one page) that is written in the preterite tense. It centers around the bad day of the main character and features some funny events. There are questions to be answered in Spanish at the end of the story. It is a good reading practice. The teachers' names in the story can be switched to make it more personal to your students. It also provides a famous quote about Tuesday the 13th in Spanish-speaking countries (this is the unlucky day instead of Friday the 13th).
