The TMI Files. Magilla's Tale Of The Big Mistake.I've not commented recently about life with Magilla as she's getting older, and there are the ever-present privacy concerns. She's still marvellous and keeping me on my toes, she's still giving out lots of hugs, and she's developing into a mighty fine writer, as you will see below. (A previous effort of hers is here.)
This is posted with permission, and she's watching me type this. :) Any comments will be forwarded onto the author, who is currently 9 years and 5 months old.
Enjoy. I did.
The Big Mistake.
One blustery night a boy (who was my brother) made a drink that would turn you into a MONSTER!!! He didn’t know that would but it did. It happened to him. He put livers, warts, boggers, eyeball juice and spit. It was HORRIBLE!!! I was about to be sick!!! Then I saw him pick up the yucky drink and I was so close to stopping him drinking it but he did.
He had warts all over him, his spit was green, his eyes were runny also his livers were humongous and his boggers were pink in his left nostril and purple in his right. I screamed out “NO”!!! Then we heard foot-steps. It was Dad. He said “What are to doing down here in the basement all alone in the dark?!” My brother said to me “Go!” I said “What about you?” He said “I’ll go out the window.” So I quickly ran the other way out of the basement. Dad came in and he saw some feet go out the window and he saw a disgusting drink on the table. He was sick and he made a big mess on the floor.
My brother roamed the garden, this way and that thinking of a way to change him back to normal. A few minutes later Mum came running outside because dad told her that there was something out there. She shivered from the coldness of the air, and then she saw a little monster in the front yard. I heard a loud shriek coming from mum. I knew that she saw him.
Mum quickly ran inside to get a knife. He quickly made a new drink. It had nectar, flowers, sugar and intentions. It worked!!! He was normal again!!! When she came back outside she said “Oh!!! It’s you dear!!!” My brother said “I was the little monster you saw. I will tell you all about it inside.” Mum said “Ok then, but have a hot chocolate while you are telling us.” “Us?” said my little brother. Mum said “Yes us. Henry!!! Suzan!!! ” So my little brother told us the whole story. No one in my family made a drink that would turn you into a monster again.
This is, as the kids say, totes awesome!
