Ziggy was definitely not looking forward to the second grade track and field day.  The teacher told them all to just do their best.  But Ziggy knew his best was worse than all the other kids' worst tries.  He was afraid the kids would laugh at him and make fun of him.  The teacher also told the kids to have fun.  How can Ziggy have fun when he is doing something that he hates?
