Once I wanted to print a coloring sheet out on the computer. So I went to ask my Dad and he said “yes.” So I went to the computer and I picked a page, chose a size and pressed print. The printer made some weird noises and started shooting out paper! After shooting 20 pieces out I was scared. Some paper it printed the sheet and it was good. Two days later I went to print another image and it did the exact same thing again – except it shot out more. Me and my Dad are still trying to figure out what is wrong with it so I do not have any answers right now so THE END.

It was a cold night. Rained poured puddles and sleet slid off ceilings from yesterday. I wonder with a sad sorrow sulking voice, “Do igloos imitate iguanas or impress ice?” I wandered off in my mind, sad as a shrew on a Sunday with no sunflower seeds. I was wearing a bashful baby blue, crying operas of sad body language. Tears fumbled down my posters of people’s postured and pasteurized face. All left was gloom, sadder than a dog caught destroying and damaging D-Rose sneakers. Captain Crunch was Captain Crud. Cocoa Puffs were Blank Puffs. And Fruit Loops was Gloom Rings. My piano weeped and guitar wined and trombone whimpered. I was a sad moon, wanting to shine but no sun reflection to do so. Drowned in doom and gloom, no life in my room, stale hay on my broom, sad depressed mushrooms, string and yarn too bummed to be loomed. Soon, the daylight and flowers began to bloom. My piano sang, my guitar talked soothingly, and my trombone whistled. The moon peeked from the sky, & the sun brought it out. Life listened and learned, and lived lively for life in my room. Shame shimmed on. The End.

Midday, on a glacier, Josh, Sadie, Clair, and Mary, 4 dolphins were one big happy family. They lived on top of the glacier and loved to ice skate, ski, and belly flop on the ice. It was the middle of global warming on a hot day and the family was fat from eating too much food. They went to belly flop onto their glacier, but the ice was melted from the heat and they all fell through. It made them scared. They were worried they wouldn’t get out. Josh said, “With all this worrying, I’m getting hungry!” Sadie said, “We can’t get food because we can’t get out of this hole, and you eat too much!” For a long time, they sat there and worried about their lives. But a shark smelled the dolphins and bit through the glacier into the hole. Mary said “Get out of here you beast, we have food to eat!” and kicked the shark. The shark drowned and they swam out the hole the shark made. They had a big feast of tiger shark as Josh gnawed through its guts. The End.
