One morning as I was getting out of bed, I decided that I would try to find the core of the earth.
First I needed about 800 shovels so I rang my friend and told him to come over that evening with all the shovels he could find. Meanwhile, I set to work on the plans. We were going to dig the hole in my back garden and it was going to be a square metre wide.
When my friend finally arrived, I wasn’t as happy as I thought I’d be.
“Was that really the only one you could find?” I said angrily.
…Now 30 years later I’ve still only managed to get 12 meters deep… Even with the help of 3 diggers.
Last week as I was going for a walk by the harbour I noticed some people dressed in colourful clothes. They all had red face paint on. I went up to the small yellow one at the front and asked him why they were all dressed in colourful clothes. He told me that they were expecting a minor alien attack and dressing in bright clothes was the only way to scare the aliens off. He told me that I could stand there too. I wasn’t too keen on scaring aliens so I ran off.
Later that day a huge bright ball lit up the sky. About 5 minutes later the colourful people passed by. Apparently they were short one person and the aliens invaded.
One day as I was coming down stairs I spotted a black banana on the kitchen table. But when I tried to picked it up I could hardly lift it so I peeled back the damaged skin. I was surprised to see that inside was a solid golden nugget. I rolled it off the table into my bag and hauled the heavy load onto my back. I put a bit of bubble rap around it too because the last thing I wanted was for it to get damaged. After that I cycled to the bank to see how much it was worth. I jumped when they turned me away instantly saying it was just a stone.
One night I was woken up by the sound of a phone ringing. I went to answer it. Apparently it was the secret service and they wanted me to help stop a mass robbery with my friend Ben.
The next day I found myself sitting in the back of a military helicopter. The plan was that we would make a jump onto the enemy helicopter and take over. When It was time for Ben to jump he messed up and ended up hanging off the side of our helicopter.
“Hold on” I shouted.
” I’m trying to hold on!” he shouted back.
One day as I was passing the old abandoned house in my neighbourhood I eyed a light flickering from inside. I scrutinized it carefully and I noticed that it was coming from a torch. I thought that was strange because there was a No Entry sign on the front garden. I brought my friend Liam over to see. He decided that we should go in and check. We took no notice of the sign. There were footsteps, evil laughs and the sound of an old fashioned printing press. I kicked the door open and inside were 2 fugitives of the law printing money.
One day as I was going to my friend Liam’s house I saw a huge for sale sign right in the middle of his front garden. I ran up and rang the dusty old doorbell but there was no answer. I was extremely confused.
A few seconds later I heard a ping from my back pocket. It was a text from Liam saying that he moved house. I followed his directions to a run-down house in the woods. I rang the crumbling wooden doorbell but all of a sudden the door swung open. I wandered in and scrutinized the old shabby furniture. I quickly realised that I’d wandered into the wrong house…
One day as I was on my way to the park I stopped at the shop to get a bar of chocolate. As I walked into the dusty old shop I noticed a huge poster on the wall with a picture of a tiny giraffe with no spots or hair. The strange thing was that the giraffe was pink. Instead of getting the chocolate I just ran out and went to the park. At the park about forty or fifty birds started chirping at the same time. The sound was painful. After a while I spotted a telephone pole with the same picture of a tiny pink giraffe. I scrutinized the picture to see if I’d seen it anywhere other than the shop.
One day as I was on my way to New Jersey with my friend Jack I noticed that there was a big bright disk lighting up the sky. I asked Jack if he had any idea what it was but he didn’t know so I whipped out my telescope. As it flew towards us I couldn’t see what it was.
Suddenly there was a huge bang followed by an enormous gust of warm wind. We started driving again but it didn’t last for long because there was a huge creator on the road right in front of us.
I peered into the creator and it was just then that numerous peculiar-looking creatures started pouring out of a spacecraft…
One day as I was going out cycling with my friend Geoffrey, my Mom shouted down the stairs for me to get some milk and bread from the shops. I walked out the door to find that Geoffrey was already waiting for me on his brand new bike. First, we went for a quick trek through the woods and after that, I headed for the shops to get the milk and the bread. Geoffrey said he’d wait beside the old ash tree which was erratic because he usually hated being on his own. Although it was Saturday nothing was opened which was also erratic. I went back to the woods to meet Geoffrey but he wasn’t there…
One day as I was on my way to the airport, my car started making a strange noise. After a while, it came to a sudden halt. I hopped out and ran back to my house. I asked my neighbour who was very old if I could borrow his ancient Ford Thunderbird. He said yes. So I hopped and fired up the engine. I pulled out of the driveway going at such a slow speed that a slug could overtake me with ease.
“But it is so slow” I shouted.
“Live with it,” he shouted back.
When I finally arrived at the airport my plane had already taken off.
“I wish this car could fly” I muttered…. A few seconds later the car took off into the air.
One day as I was riding my bike through the woods I noticed that its colour was a little bit faded so I went down to the local hardware store and bought two cans of yellow spray paint. I cycled back up to the woods and strapped my bike to a telephone pole beside a near by-road. I whipped out the cans of spray paint and started painting.
After a while one of the cans wouldn’t stop spraying I turned around in the direction of the road and tried to get it to stop but instead, I accidentally sprayed a long yellow stripe on a passing red car.
One day as I was walking along the footpath, I came across this strange looking furry creature moving slowly towards me. I stood still in the hope that the strange-looking creature would go away but it didn’t. It climbed right up my body and hung onto my head. I ran and ran but the creature stayed put right where it was. Finally, the creature hopped off but it did push me into the back of a black vehicle. It started the van and took off. The music that was blaring out in the front and could be heard for miles.
One day as I was going to the bookshop I came across a strange werewolf like human. It came up to me and started speaking.
“Which way to the shops?” it panted.
I tried to speak but no words came out. The half-werewolf half-human started to growl. I tried to speak for the second time but once again no words came out so I just pointed in the direction of the shops and ran off. I looked back and saw the werewolf running like a bullet through everything in its path.
In my opinion, bees are amazing. Some scientists say that if bees die out people would only have four years to live after. Bees are responsible for very three out of four bites of food that you eat and that’s the same as 75%.
In China, there are not that many bees so some people have to pollinate by hand. We can not keep depending on bees to do our work and that’s where robotic bees come in.
A robotic bee would need to be light, have fast wings, powerful motors and solar panels.
On one Christmas Eve I woke up to an enormous bang followed by a vast chuckle. I opened my bedroom window and peered out into the night sky. I could see nothing so I went outside, clambered up the wonky old ladder and onto the side of the roof. I got the biggest shock of my life. I saw an old man dressed in blue and two polar bears pulling a big bag with a saddle on top. The man took one look at me and hopped onto the bag. The two polar bears started to run. After a while they took off into the night sky. ” Wow I didn’t realise they could fly” I thought to myself.
The hazardous famine had been going on for months at this stage. Our parents were sending us off on a ship to Canada and they were going to go to a treacherous workhouse. I wasn’t happy with the situation. I could tell that my sister wasn’t too happy either because we’d probably never see my parents again. I started to wonder what my new life would be like over in Canada.
The day finally came as we stood at the shaky old pier clutching our suitcases. You could hear the waves crashing against the rocks and wind howling. It was fairly obvious that a storm was brewing. Off in the distance, I heard the shouting of people. My sister started quivering with fear. When the thunder started booming like there was no tomorrow she got even more scared.
As the ship came closer I was just about able to make out the tattered white sails billowing in the wind. It looked extremely lopsided and I knew that it wasn’t supposed to be like that. When the ship finally docked, an old man popped his head over the side.
“Hop on, there is a nasty storm brewing” he hollered.
We hopped on so quickly that there was a risk of us breaking the sound barrier. As we set off for sea I noticed that the ship was still tilting. My sister was sitting in the corner with her arms covering head looking as white as a ghost. A few days later I woke up to an enormous bang. I looked over the side and noticed to my horror that we had sailed straight into an iceberg. The ship was sinking fast. I grabbed my sister and went up to the old captain. He didn’t say a word…
One day as I was walking up the road I felt something hit my back. I realized I was in the vicinity of what people called the old wizard’s hut. I turned around to see what it was but just as I turned my head I had a complete blackout. That’s all I remembered before I woke up in the kitchen of the wizard’s hut. I heard the wizard babbling out crazy things like “give me food” and “no” he said “I like marmite”.
I was so scared that I fainted and woke up in the same place a few weeks later.
We were planning a robbery. My friend Bill and I. I was in a quandary whether we would hang around the vicinity of the bank for a while and then make a pounce or if we would just dive straight in. The plan was that I would be the getaway driver in the old rust red pickup truck and Bill would go in and use a crowbar to pull open the main safe. The day of the robbery didn’t start well. At around 6 o clock I went to pick up Bill. He broke his finger by catching it in the door of the pick up.
On Halloween night everything was fine until I knocked on the two sixth class bullies houses while I was trick or treating. They pulled me outside and gave me dirty looks. One of them had orange hair and the other one had black hair. The orange one spoke first. ”Give me all of your sweets or I’ll punch you to the ground” he said. After that, the one with black hair threatened me if I didn’t give him all of my money. The bullies started arguing with each other over which way they should split the sweets and the money so I saw that as my chance to run.
One day we went on a trip to the museum. It was fairly pedestrian at the start but it was alright. The main attraction seemed to be this enormous diamond. As we were about to leave I asked if I could go to the bathroom. When I got out everyone was waiting for me outside. But just as I was about to leave I noticed that the diamond was missing.
”The diamond is missing” I roared. A lady came racing in.” but where did it go ” she shouted. I didn’t know what to do so I just ran in case she thought it was me who stole the diamond. On the bus home, I noticed that the class trouble maker was struggling with his bag…
I was working my shift at the lab when my boss asked me to bring over the large bucket of acid in the corner. It was heavier than I expected but I managed it. My boss started to scoop some out with what he called an acid-proof spoon. He put big heavy weights on the bottom so it would sit firmly in the corner. It turns out that the weights made it almost four times as heavy. I stumbled two times already but when I stumbled for the third time all the acid in the bucket sloshed out.
One day as I was going to sign up for the local football team, I got a message from the team manager. It said that I was too short and skinny to join the team. I was really disappointed so I ran home and whipped out my old science kit. I mixed everything together and it made a glowing green liquid. My plan was to drink it and hope that I would be stronger by the morning. My plan was faultless… Or so I thought.
By morning I hadn’t gotten any stronger but I had grown about four meters taller.
Last week I bought a kite in Sports Direct. I took it straight outside to try it but I just couldn’t get it to fly. I was extremely annoyed when it just wouldn’t take off. I tried everything from flinging it out my attic window to blowing air at it.
One windy day I brought the kite out for the last time to see if it was going to fly before I threw it out. I threw it high into the air but this time it didn’t sink down like it usually did. It shot out of my hands and straight up into the air.
One sunny day as I was going out for a cycle my mother warned me not to go up White Top Mountain because the snow at the top was far too dangerous to cycle on.
I hopped on my yellow bicycle and went off down the road. Even though my mother had told me not to I greedily went up to White Top Mountain. When I approached the snow I started to think about what my mother had said so I turned around. After a while, I got the smell of a desperate burning scent. I realised that the rubber on my brakes had sheared off completely…
On the 8/3/2016 something very strange happened. I was walking along the street when something shiny caught my eye. I went over to see what it was. It was a little golden pocket watch. I pressed the button on the side. Then everything stopped and no one was moving. I pressed the button for the second time and everyone started moving again. I didn’t know what to do with it.
I pressed the button for the third time and sure enough everyone stopped again. The first thing I did was run straight to my favourite restaurant. I raced through the door. But it was then that I realised that I could do nothing because there were no other people there.
One day when I was walking to school I saw two statues. They were very old and shabby looking. The thing that was so strange about it was that they were right in the middle of the road. A bunch of construction workers started turning up in trucks. They all pulled in beside the statues and started trying to move them. They tried everything from digging up the ground underneath to chipping bits off with spoons to make them lighter.
When I was on my back from school I went to see If the statues were still there. But they weren’t…
As I was on my way home from school I heard footsteps behind me so I turned around. I was surprised to see my best friend Max. He asked me if I wanted to go to the zoo. I said yes. On the way to the zoo we played a game of eye spy. I went first. I said “eye spy with my little something coloured purple.” He guessed straight away. It was the purple elephant on the signpost. The Avocado sandwich in my bag stank to the bones. When we got to the zoo we walked around for a while. But then we walked over to the aquarium. I wandered over to the seahorse and it was just swimming around in circles.
