12: The Ultimate All-Purpose Excuse | I would have been on time to your class, but I misplaced my pencil. But then I saw it! It was rolling down the street. The problem was that I could not catch it. So, I dropped my backpack to lighten the load. I chased my pencil to the busy highway, but then it was run over by a semi. So, I had to walk back and get my backpack, hoping to make it to class. As I was coming, back to get my backpack, I realized it wasn't there! So, I looked all around the school, but couldn't find it. Just then, I heard it - the zippers clanking. I ran toward the noise, but on the way I was chased by aliens. After I had defeated them with my broken pencil, I saw my backpack in the middle of the field! As I was running to get it, a vulture swept it up and dropped it in the Mustang River. Then, I had to break off a tree branch and ride it down the stampeding river. I finally caught up to my soaked backpack. I picked up, but then realized I was lost! I had a long conversation with a rabbit, but finally it agreed to show me the way. It only took me to Babcock though. I still had to walk another four miles down Babcock to get to school. When I got there, I came to your room. And that's why I was late.
13: Flashback | My Schlitterbahn trip Exciting, painful, funny And a broken tooth Birthday cake and friends A memorable event The tooth wasn't mine
14: Picture This | Identification: http://perifericbiennial.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/money_art_05.jpg | This piece of art has two main components, money and a dog. To me, this picture can be responded to two ways. The first way says that there is a dog who is cared for. He is especially pampered, thus the money, and he gets all the love. The other way says that he is cheated out in his life. The money surrounding him is only ones. It could say that he only gets the minimum, barely enough food and no love at all.
15: In one medium suitcase, I would take mainly the things I live with, like my phone, Ipod, etcetera. I would pack some books, entertainment devices like 20Q, my laptop, a bunch of my clothes, all of my gaming systems, and a bunch of money. These things are what I use most. It is what I live with and what I do in my spare time. If there were other options besides one suitcase, I would choose one of the two. I would either bring a credit card that never “ran out” or I would use more suitcases. If I had the endless credit card, I would be set to wherever I go. I could buy all that I needed, like food, clothing, a house, and a car and I could do whatever I want. In the other option, I would pack everything that is in my room. I could also use carriers to take all my pets and I could take my family and friends. For me, it is too hard to choose specific things. I like all that I have. I wouldn't take only a few things. | One Medium Suitcase
16: How to get a Bone Bruise | Step 1; Have a bad day at school by being tired. Step 2: After your long exhausting day, go to your two hour spring training for football. Step 3: After your hard practice, race out with your dad to your brothers practice. Step 4: At your brothers practice, don't help with it, but instead do your homework. Step 5: Decide you can't do your homework because it's to windy. Step 6: Start watching their practice but don't join. Step 7: Finally, you can give into helping with their practice by returning some kickoffs. But don't join until the last play. Step 8: Then you can receive the kickoff, and be mobbed by the team without your own pads. Step 9: Then you'll feel your finger hurt and see it get huge the next day. Step 10: Decide you've had enough pain, and ask to go to the doctor. Step11: At the doctor, wait a while, get it x-rayed, and get a fun but annoying splint. Step 12: Ask what it is then, if it's not broken. He'll tell you it's a bone bruise, meaning if it were hit any harder it would fracture. Then he'll tell you to ice it every night, which is really fun!
17: Extraordinary Pet | My extraordinary pet is a cat. His name is Brock and he is an award-winning British Shorthair. He is big and bulky, weighing about 12 pounds. He sits like a seal, but is very muscular. When, he runs, he gallops. His face is round and it makes me laugh every time I see it. He is pretty fast and also very soft and thick-coated. When he meows, which is rare, you would think it would be masculine. It is not, it is higher-pitched than my female cats. The things that make him extraordinary are his charm, his loyalty and love, his overall look, and his femininity.
