P.S. This is the extremely talented Chloe writing.
The Soda Can Apocalypse
During lunch, when with a crowded group of people, there will come the time when you knock something over. For some it goes worse than others, as for me it went worse. When I knocked my friend’s seltzer can over, I went into immediate action mode.

Sophie wrote her annual letter to Santa, all by herself. The text and the spelling are all hers. I told her one Mallomar was enough for Santa because he was on a diet and that she didn’t need to leave him a glass of milk because he was also lactose intolerant.

We all survived the night camping out as a family in our living room. By the way, this is the closest we will ever come to real camping. I felt about 10 years older when I woke up, thanks to the fact that my legs, too long for the corner of the couch I was sleeping on, were completely cramped. Our power was still out when we awoke (and still is and likely will be for days and days and days) and fallen branches were everywhere, but we were safe.

Sophie’s first poem for pinkmenot.com. Enjoy.

Which made him so very, very pissed
So then he was quite annoyed
‘Cause Santas who are on the
Naughty List always get unemployed
She’s a budding writer, let me tell you. The spelling is all hers.
In a three
So as me
In a frown
Daring as me
