Unbeknownst to Chloe, her homework has provided me with tonight’s blog entry. Which is a good thing, because I have no idea what I would have written about otherwise. I honestly can’t believe I’ve kept this blog up for as long as I have, and into my third week of work, no less. Anyway, on with the story.
Chloe’s class is learning about storytelling this week, and for one of her assignments, she had to write a story, based on an image of two alien-like creatures sifting through garbage. Following is her masterly (at least for a 7-year old) and succinct interpretation of the picture and ode to science fiction writers everywhere:
“The Two Weird Space Creatures”
Twinny and Twinster landed in a city dump and started to eat the garbage. Twinny and Twinster are odd space creatures. The queen of their planet, called Twinatwin, broke their ship because they turned her into a twin and she doesn’t like twins.
They called the queen by using their antennas and told her to look out her window, and she saw acrobats who formed in a position to spell “we’re sorry!” The queen said, “I’ll use my powers to fix your ship.” And they went back home in their ship.
We may have the makings of another Ray Bradbury or H.G. Wells on our hands. Go, Chloe, go – you little prodigy, you!
