Child #3 Speaks

To celebrate Child #3's first decade, I've allowed him to take over the blog for today. In his words:
This is a story for my cousins - especially Julia and Fuzzy.

A Very Strange Day

One day I was up on my loft bed trying to take a nap when I heard, "Muchacho!" I looked down and saw a ... cabbage? Now wait one darn second, I thought, cabbage isn't supposed to talk!
It only took a second, but that crazy thing jumped right onto my bed and rammed my stomach. I could NOT believe that talking cabbage was beating me up. I tried as hard as I could stop the malevolent cabbage, but it continued to beat me up.
I had no choice. I grabbed the top of it and threw it off the bed. What happened next was very weird. It exploded.
Suddenly, my room got dark. I looked outside and saw tens and thousands of cabbages. All of them were chanting, "Mu - cha - cho! Mu - cha - cho!"
It was horrible. People were tied up with tape around their mouths and bandannas covered their eyes. I wondered, "Am I the only survivor left?" A chill went down my spine. Then I heard a loud crashing noise and looked downstairs only to see cabbages pouring in the door.
"NO! NO! NOOOOOOO!" I screamed.
That was when I woke up, rolled over, and saw ... a cabbage next to me.

LOL! I love to hear about kids dreams - they rival the best fiction out there!

Wow - looks like you have a storyteller in your midst! You'd better get another blog set up....

Great job, especially for the first decade :)

what a cute story! I won't be able to go to the store and look at cabbages again without wondering if they will be ganging up on me! Happy Decade to your son!

What an imagination! When are we going to see this in the form of a children's book!?
