Mom would never understand why I want to do this.  And she has already told me that I can't.  But how can I convince her that this is something I just have to do.  I just have to enter the rodeo next month.  I just have to ride the Brahma bull. I've been secretly practicing at a friend's ranch and I know I'll be ready.  Even my littler sister Tara the Terror thinks I'm ready.  Of course she also thinks her horse Rambo is ready to enter the barrel racing competition.  Fat chance.  Anyway, in spite of my mom's feelings, I'm going to enter the rodeo and ride that bull.  I'm pretty sure that's what my dad would have wanted -- if he were here.
