Worst. Day. Ever.

Blah blah blah blah blah
No No No No No No No
No blah blah blah
The worst day ever.
-Stacia, Attempt 1

1. Fall in the pool.
2. Fall off the roof.
3. My head gets shaved.
4. I got on punishment.
5. I had to eat fish.
6. I got lost in the store.
7. I got left on the bus.

I wake up and I'm surrounded by zombies. Outside are deer that are on fire. There's 12 minutes until earth is destroyed. Everybody is a zombie and we're all hungry.

The worst day ever is when my sister threw up on me because she was sick and that was really nasty. One day when my mom and dad were picking up my sister and I was at home with my grandma there was a tornado and stuff was spinning in it, and a lot of things spinning around in the tornado.

The worst day ever was Shahliah not getting in trouble. I was so mad. She could've got in trouble. And then she started to yell at me for No Freaken Reason. And just because I slept on her bed she yelled at me again. The End.
-Stacia, Final Draft

July 29, 2029

Sean: The basketball stadium will be the shape of a basketball and look like a basketball. The football players will have more money.

Lynn: My kids names are going to be named Alissa, Andrew and Ashley. I will also have a dog named Brandie.

: I will take a shower and immediately go to the Barack Obama hospital. Because Obama was in a car crash. Now we have a big laser to cut through the head. I will eat dinner and go to sleep.

Pooja: I would learn more about science. I will figure out a question nobody has ever figured out before! That is what it would be like 20 years later! They would invent a medicine which is a candy. Dogs would have super speed. They would take 20 years to finish a book. Houses would reach space. This is 20 years later! Wait a minute, the medicine would cure candynitis. This is 20 years later!

Sampoorna: There will be a medicine that is in candy. And for Halloween there will be a pumpkin that you can color on then put it on a pumpkin then wash the pumpkin and wherever you drew it would carve the pumpkin and if you touch one of the places it will carve. While it carves it will not hurt.

Lauren: I don't want it to change. When I am 27 I will look like I am 7.

Duncan: The Animator's Office
I am possibly the only remaining human on earth. The air is now impossible to breathe, so everyone else moved to Vega, one of Pluto's stars. My only company is vampires and carnivorous horses and talking cats.

I finished animating an action kid cartoon. My assistant, a vampire named Queanapo sauntered toward me.

"The background is beautiful," he commented somberly.

"As the actual earth was once," I whispered. He put his hand, or should I say paw, on my shoulder and sobbed. "The earth is now grey and dark. Your cartoons are the only sunlight we'll see, since they took place before 2018."

Sharp Teeth and Money in the Bank

The Fladodalpo:
My animal is the fladodalpo. And it lives in 3 different places. 1. Africa, 2. rainforest, 3. the desert. He can fly, hear far, and run as fast as a cheetah. He eats leaves because he cares for other species. And he wishes he was a human so he could be a vet and help the other animals.
- Monai

The Snog:
A snog is like a snake that barks like a dog. He has really sharp teeth and he has money in the bank. The snog is green and it looks ugly. He has 2 feet and wears shoes and a shirt and he's married.
- Cedric

The Spiderpig:
The Spiderpig lives in the woods. It eats flies and slob, preferring flies on its slob, as we would sprinkles. It's perfect for traps. It doesn't use the bathroom. It uses the poop for a web.
- Travon

The Snerbil:
Its name is the snerbil. It's a snake and a gerbil. What it eats is gerbils, so he eats himself. In the picture, he is trying to catch his tail to eat it.
- Jocelyn

The Law

If Hikone made the rules around here. . .

Jermaine: If you curse you will be hit with a paintball gun.

Jerome: No stealing, if you do you have to suck on a million feet.

Takayla: No eating fish because it is nasty. If you do you will get sick, your throat will go dry, or you will get in trouble.

Antonio: No leaving the town, you will get kicked in the butt.

Breonna: No dogs allowed, except for Colby, Button, Rocsy, Toepy, Tater Tot, Gizmo, Reese, and the little black puppy.

Sierra: No wild dogs, no little boys except my sons and no big boys except my sons, and only my daughter's friends and my son's friends and little baby friends can play and don't make the rooms messy or those have to clean those up.

Fred: No copying. Tony goes to jail.

Tony: Fred is going to jail.


Cats rule world?
Lynn: School started at 1:00 because my cat/teacher loves to sleep. I just hate this cat world where everyone's a cat! I wanted to leave this world where everyone is a heavy sleeper. I hated school here, I wanted to go to school SOMEWHERE ELSE! Gelly roll gelly roll gelly roll.
Sean: The world would be very hairy. I will be very dirty. I would have hair balls all over the place. I would have to learn cat language. I would have to meow.
Abigail: If cats ruled? Well I have one question for you! What do you think the janitors and plumbers would do?
Pooja: My teacher would fall asleep at math on top of her desk. If she was in a bad mood I would pet her on the stomach and she would be happy again. [. . .] We would have a teacher named Fluffy and Whiskers. School would be over at 2:00. They would teach us how to meow instead of talk. At the end of the day I would wish we didn't have cats to rule the world. It would be a headache to have cats to rule the world!
Sadie: If a cat was a waitress I think the menu would be mice and milk.
Duncan: A Calico King (by Rudyard Kipling)
Thou shalt not escape King Raptor.
No mouse can dodge him. They're his prisoners.
"I sentence dread and drear to all dogs," he yowls.
Out of the woods bound panicking dogs.
"TALLY-HOE!!" Raptor shouts from a horse. "Here ye, here ye! Thy king announces fox hunts shall have wolf hunts and even hound hunts a-following after!"
All royal aquariums of human emperors and aviaries of Elven duchesses are gone and eaten.

Roads are rivers?
Kelly: There would be a sideswim (sidewalk) for swimmers.
Devak: School would be underwater. And for lunch you would have fish, squid, octopus, and shrimp. Humans might even develop gills.
Lauren: I would swim everywhere. Everybody is tan and has blonde hair and wears swim suits. Everybody skates in the winter. Dogsled or snow boots.
Pranav: If anyone forgot their water bottle they could drink out of the river.
Rosie: There would be signs like "Surfers share road," and floating caution cones for construction. Street lights would be lighthouses.

Hands for eyes?
Devak: To put my clothes on I would have to bite my clothes and would have to toss them on my head. And for breakfast if I had cereal I would have to put the spoon in my eye socket to scoop it out of my bowl.
Sadie: If I shook hands with a person they would run away.
Pooja: I would brush my hair with my eyes and instead of moving my hair brush I would move my head. I wouldn't brush my teeth with my foot, definitely not with my foot.
Pranav: I would have robot that would guide me everywhere I want to go. And when I'm writing my robot would tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Eating rocks?
Sean: If I ate rocks, I would taste like one. The gray one would taste like vanilla and the limestone would taste like banana and the fool's gold would taste like Superman. I will look like a ball of water and rocks.
Pranav: For breakfast I would have a rock pancake for breakfast, for lunch a rock pizza, for dinner rock rice.
Lynn: I woke up early in the morning smelling my favorite rock, limestone. I ate one and washed it down with lava. I packed some for lunch, brushed my teeth and gathered by books and went to catch the bus.
Kelly: My favorite rock is granite and sandstone. I usually drink metallic liquid, and lava would be a treat. Marble is especially good, but that's usually at special parties. For breakfast I have quartz, limestone and sometimes crystal for a difference. Lunch is normally fool's gold and mica.
Rosie: Here's what each rock tasted like: grantite = cherries; marble = waffles; limestone = limes, of course!; quartz = brownies; sandstone = lettuce; crystal = ice cream; olivine = olives; geode = it comes in two flavors, blackberry and spaghetti.

Dream vacations and postcards

Well. . .where would you go?

Sam: I would go to Florida because it is hot. I would go with my momma, daddy, and granny. I'd bring some girls, my tight shoes, my Air Force Ones. I will go to the beach, get all the ladies on the beach. I would bring back some clothes and some fierce shoes.

Suszie: I would go to a store because it is fun to buy stuff. I would go with my mom. I would bring a backpack. I would do baffips [backflips]. I will eat cake and ice cream and bring back candy fruit roll-ups.
  • Postcard: Dear Josh, He is a good guy. I miss you on vacation. He like me. Your friend, Suszie

22 Boyfriends

"Once upon a time there was a mermaid named L'dana. She had 22 boyfriends but only one was her truest love. His name was Kevin."

-A mysteriously submitted story by Stacia

King's Travels (by Jack London)

By Duncan

King was a red wolf. 3ft at the shoulder and 6 feet from nose to tail.
From a town called Luzchivez in California, he is the first animal to travel on foot to Peru.
On his way he met a silly Caiman named Tequilla in Northern Central America.

"What's your name?" King asked.
"Mi gusto burritos! Aye-aye-aye!" Tequilla guffawed, banging his tail on a xylophone.

The reason he's so silly is that he always talks off topic, not because he speaks only Spanish.
They eventually reached Peru. As they saw their first llama, King said to himself: Tequilla is a great friend for leading me here. Tequilla responded by inquiring: "Como se llamas? Mi llama Tequilla! Hablo Espaniol, amigo?"

They had many fun years together. But, good times must end. After all, human relationships are longer than animal friendships.

King merely left with a hunk of meat. Tequilla cried one salty tear, not crocodile, but a real tear of sorrow. He knew King was back in California with his own kind.

"No mi gusta," he sobbed. This time he spoke on topic.
  • Postcard: Dear Hunters,
    My guide to Peru is a Caiman named Tequilla.
    I wish you were here, Queen. Not as much you, baby wolves, as Tequilla could be perilous.
    On the back is apicture of Tequilla, whom I'm swimming with tonight.
    Love, King.

Best Vacations

If we ever get the scanner working, pictures will be added.

Lauren: I want to go to Kalahari. I want to bring my swimsuit and my goggles and my towel and clothes. I am going to bring Lindsey. I am going to play in the water. I am going to jump in the water. Splash!!! On a plane! I am going to have a party with Lindsey.
  • Postcard: Dear mom, dad, mom, Leigha, Lynn. I miss you so much. I hope you have a good time. This is what I did I went on the rides I swam in the pool. I went to the airport. I went on the airplane. I am going to come soon!! I am coming soon. Yay. I will come. Get ready Lauren coming. Yahoo! Great.
Alison: My dream vacation would be in Honolulu, Hawaii.
[. . .]
I will get there by a free luxury cruise. It will be almost as big as the Titanic, but more better and elegant. Oh, and it will be a private cruise.
My end of vacation party will be a luau and all of my friends and family except Lindsey. There will be tiki torches and hula dancers.

Lucia: All the unicorns are pure white and sparkle like snow, and the only way you can tell them apart is by their horns. They're all different colours. They also have games, or races, with the other creatures. To compete skills in magic, or running or speaking. But everyone is a winner.
To get to the clouds you have to first go in a flying boat, then a phoenix takes you the rest of the way. In order to go back down to earth you have to ride a unicorn.

Jack: Once upon a time a person named Rum went to the Pacific Ocean. He walked to the ocean and he swam to the middle. Be brought a gun, soda, a bucket and a sandwich. These items aren't real useful well. He survives, THEN a rocket falls into the water. Rum exploded into thin air and landed on an electric eel. Well he died.
  • Postcard: Help oh my gosh I'm drowning
    Die shark so
    Here's pictures on the back
    To: Pirates
Sean: To North Carolina. I would bring all of my North Carolina stuff like my hat, jersey and my basketball hoop and stuff. No one will come with me. I would play basketball on my basketball hoop. I will get there by bus. I will have a contest on basketball 5 on 5. I will have lot of fun at North Carolina. I will go to the game of the Cavaliers and Lakers and play with them. I wil play with Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
  • Postcard: Hi _____
    Come to North Carolina and you will be happy that you did.
  • Postcard: It has been five days since the attack. I doubt we will last long but Kyle has a plan. Me being as negative as I am decided to write this in case it fails. You wouldn't believe what happened! But seeing is believing so I've enclosed a tape of it all. Time is short. I have to go. Farewell and if this note is found please forward it to Mark and Linda.
  • Postcard: Dear Liz and Josh,
    Hi I'm on a desserted island. I fell off a ship that was coming from Peru and going to Puerto Rico. I fell off the ship and landed on a desserted island. I just learned how to make acorn pancakes!
Britt: Everything seemed dismally grey. The sky, the buildings, the rocks and even the Ocean. It seemed that nothing could get worse. I stared out at the dismal sea. On eof the barges crossed the horizon. I wished I could get on one and sail away go anywhere not grey. Just then Emma came up to me in a hurry. Emma had lived in Rockaway ever since I could remember. "Britta" she gasped. "I'm leaving." "leaving?" I cried. "Where?"
"I'm going to Ireland to my Aunt and Uncle's."
I remembered the Pictures of Ireland we had seen at School. The green fields rolling over each other in waves. Before I had time to think I blurted, "Could I come?"
Emma looked startled and stuttered, "I dunno Britt."
  • Dear Mum,
    I docked safely in Ireland with Emma. We are staying at her Aunt's and Uncle Patrick's. We had fun on the ship and I think I like to stow away better than pay legally. [. . .]

Jermaine: Colby is black and fuzzy. He is a big dog and a good dog. If he stands on two paws he's almost 5 feet tall. One day Colby will be Dogzilla!!! Dogzilla is a big dog, in fact the biggest and bestest dog in the worlds.

Stacia: Once upon a time there was a princess-dog named Colby and she was the cutest princess-dog ever. The queen of Colby is Amy. Amy was the owner and one day, Colby wanted to count how many treats she had, but where were they? So she was so mad she barked in doggy language and said "What happened to all my treats, I feel like kicking someone in the butt, it's gonna hurt so bad poop is going to come out of your mouth. In 2 weeks she found out the evil king was Tater Tot. Soon as she found out she snuck out of her room. First she had to pee on the first security guards... (to be continued).

Baldwin Center: Day 2

[After explaining how we'll be writing and performing a play]
Kid #1: "Are we getting paid for this?"
Kid #2: "Will you give us 99 million dollars?"

Story the 4th-6th graders' play is inspired by:

The Old Man Who Didn’t Give the Old Man Some Soup [told by Isaiah]

"There’s two girls that act like they were two old men. There’s a table, and they start banging on it saying 'give me some soup.' And the old man that works there says, 'I’m not giving you any soup.'

The waitress just walks away and the old man never gets any soup."

826michigan's Official Summer Song

Baldwin Center: Day 1

Nyeesha's t-shirt: "Boys are like school on holidays. No class."

[Playing a game where the kids must become different creatures on command]
Aaron, 826 volunteer: "Okay, now the transformer dome will be..."
Devian, roughly 10 years old: "A rave party!?"

[Discussing our play and its characters]
Devian: "Can I be the one in distress?"

More Superheroes (part two)

When Super Sadie comes to the bank she just watches the fight. Because it is fun. She is super about watching crimes and she just really likes to watch crimes.

If I had a power I would have anything I want. I would have a big head, I would have a white shirt. I will have big feet. I will be an alien. I will defeat Mr. Brain. He has big teeth, a weird snape, 3 fingers, 8 arms, a weird shape on his leg. And 53 toes.

Power: I can turn into anything I want.
Enemies: Boys.

Fire Girl was robbing the bank! [Super Psychic] couldn't tell the cops because they would question why she was out at 12:00 midnight.

Super Skater.
She can turn anything into ice.
She can skate very fast.
She can do jumps.
She can do spins.
She can do stretches.
She can do spiral sequences.
She can do moves.
She was born like this.

Somebody robbed a bank and Super Skater saw and made them into ice. And put the money back. And he went to jail. She saw in a newspaper. She already [solved] 500 crimes. Her award was $300!!!

Zackum isn't a girl or boy. He's nothing. He has 134 arms. He's made out of lava. He's a villain. He lives in lava. He's the second most biggest thing in the world. He fights for freedom. His archenemy is, let's just say billions of people.
Bob is the strongest man in the universe. He doesn't look that strong. He is.
Zackum got away with [robbing the bank] but since he stole the money he was cursed, so if he went to the bank he would die. Years and years passed by. Zackum tried to go in the bank. He almost died. He went in again. He died.

More Superheroes (part one)

Phantom, by Duncan
Occupation: Kidnapper, ghost
Nemesis: Crazy Dog (rapper hero)
Powers: Morph into panther at will.
Real name: Garth Zyxx
Is like this 'cause: He was bit by a radioactive panther.
Why he hates Crazy Dog: He's scared of hip-hop.

The Coat (by Charles Dickens)
Phantom nimbly races betwixt the alleys. The banker's coat is cast upon his gaunt arm.

He bells like an elk, "Tra-lu! Tra-lae! In moons thou shalt find me!"

But gather, oh children, as if a tempest struck with a clang, the rapper Crazy Dog came forward.

"Thou jests, homie. Answer thyself to prison and law. I expect to buy a milkshake, and lo, I catch...Phantom!"

The hunt was delayed, as Crazy Dog was trotting out of the alleys.

Phantom, now a decayed panther, roars, "Enjoy thy bones, he whom seeks the coat. I shall lunge unto thee!"

[never written down but retold here for the purposes of laughing & smiling]

Here is my planet. It's called Booger World, and here is the Queen. The Queen is me, and there's my blue dress. There's my crown - it's made of boogers dipped in gold. See, I don't have a mouth, because people are born without mouths and then they have to find a mouth tree and pick one. And there's my dog, who's a skunk, because on this world, dogs are skunks. And the people on the planet eat the skunk poop, and use the skunk spray as perfume. They're really stinky, the whole world is really stinky, that's why there are all those SSSSssss coming off the planet.

So, their dogs are skunks, and their cats are alligators. But the alligators are nice, and don't eat the skunks, or the people. They put them on leashes and they all walk around together, and the alligators poop rainbows, but the rainbows don't survive because they just can't on stinky worlds.

When I grow up

By Stacia

I will be a millionaire and I will either live in a condo or a mansion. If I live in a mansion I am going to tell my twin boys to scrub my feet. Then I am going to the massage chair.
