Me preparo para el baile

¡Esta noche es el baile de la escuela! Estoy MUY entusiasmada. Para un evento especial, hago muchas cosas para prepararme. Primero, me ducho lentamente. Me lavo el pelo y la cara. Me afeito también. Después de ducharme, me seco con una toalla y me seco el pelo con un secador. Me pinto las uñas y me pongo agua de colonia. Entonces, me pongo el desodorante. Me maquilla y me arreglo el pelo. Luego, me visto. Me pongo un vestido elegante y joyas bonitas. A veces le pido prestadas unas joyas a mi amiga. Depende del color de mi vestido. Finalmente, estoy lista para el baile. ¿Cómo vas a prepararte tú para el baile?
