Sharing

Some people think I don’t like sharing, but that isn’t true at all. I love sharing. I mean, what’s not to love about sharing. Sometimes you have to be careful, though. Like if someone comes up to me and says, “Can I have one of your cookies?” Well, if I gave them a cookie, then I might not have any cookies left to share with other people and that would be, like, the opposite of sharing. So I have to say no. Because sharing is really important.

 

Sunflowers​

I don't have a mother either... she's in heaven with my baby sister... But that doesn't mean I can't talk to her, I talk to her all the time... I tell her everything and I know she hears me because... because that's what angels do. My mom is an angel and yours is too.

 

Hot Dogs

No, I’m sorry, Mrs. Jones, I don’t eat that. I don’t eat anything green, orange, white, or whatever that thing is. No offense Mrs. Jones I think I might be allergic. No really you can call my mom right now I am super allergic ! ( Mrs. Jones pick up the phone) Now Now Mrs. Jones no need to call my mom, I can sit next to it I just cant eat it.  I only eat hot dogs. You don’t have hot dogs?

 

Hide and Seek

Hey, where did everybody go? I give up! I counted to a hundred, like you said. It took a really long time. Where is everybody? I said I give up! I can’t find you!

 

Are you behind the swing? Ugh no ? …. Ouch, ouch, help! I fell off the jungle gym and I've broken all my bones! Call 9-11! I see the light! Come out and help me! This isn’t funny any more, you guys. Come out!

 

The News

Why do you watch the news every night, Dad? It’s boooooooring. It’s always the same. The news is just a bunch of guys talking. It’s JUST SO BORING! Can’t we watch the cartoon channel? Don’t you like to laugh? Here, I’ll be the news guy: “Tonight everyone is very boring in the whole world. and the weather is boring. Have a boring night. I’m boring. Good night.” That’s it! I just did the news for you. Now you don’t have to watch it! Let’s watch cartoons!

 

Look at the Sky

Look, Peter, the sky. What a lovely, lovely day. Aren’t the clouds beautiful? You know
what I do when it seems as if I couldn’t stand being cooped up for one more minute? I think
myself out. I think myself on a walk in the park where I used to go with Pim. You know the
most wonderful thing about thinking yourself out? You can have it anyway you like.
I wish you had a religion, Peter. Oh, I don’t mean you have to be Orthodox. I just mean some
religion. It doesn’t matter what. When I think of all that’s out there, and the goodness of the
people we know, all risking their lives for us every day, when I think of these good things, I’m
not afraid anymore.
I know it’s terrible, trying to have any faith, when people are doing such horrible things… But
I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are really good at heart.
Listen to us, going at each other like a couple of stupid grown-ups. Look at the sky now, isn’t
it lovely?

Danger

Hello… I would like to take a moment to talk to all of you about the dangers of taking your parents to Disneyland. First off, we are all here with a big group, and who wants to be discovered by a classmate when your mom is wearing Mickey Ears, and asking your little brother how to write a text message… then of course, there is your dad’s fascination with roller coasters. This could go one of two ways, either really fun if he likes all the same rides you do… or if your dad is like mine, then you should avoid them altogether. My dad made me wait in line for the highest… the fastest, and most exciting ride at Disney… Space Mountain… the line was forever, then we climb into a car that zips off… I started to question my dad about the 4 corndogs he had wolfed down while waiting in line… then it happened… As soon as we hit the first dip in the track …(WWWWaaaaarrrffff!!!! ) my dad HURLS!!! I think it must have hit some people in the cars behind us, because for being at Disney…. I sure heard a lot of BAD language… thank god Space Mountain is in the dark so no one knew who did it. If you go… I suggest sitting in the front!

 

Who I Truly Am

I’m just being me. I want to be more real in my life. I’ve gotten tired of trying to fit in and be accepted by everyone else. I’ve always felt like I’m lying to myself. If people don’t accept me for me, for who I truly am, then I don’t want to be friends with those people.

 ​

Forgiveness 

 

I didn’t mean to make you feel insignificant.   I didn’t mean to make you cry and get you upset.  I love you and think the world of you and I would be nothing without you by my side.  You give me the strength and the courage to do the things I do because you believe in me so much

I’m sorry babe, please forgive me…

Chess Game

 

You keep distracting me, Elenie.  You see me playing chess and you have to keep stomping around.  It’s bad enough you always seem to roam around while I’m practicing! Let alone stomp your feet like a Neanderthal.  You’re so annoying.

You know, I have to practice, so why do you keep distracting me?
