The Toaster


I decided to go with a guest post today.  He doesn't know I am posting this and he probably would slam his door and stomp his feet if he knew.  I found his writing when I was going through his school papers.  He wrote this little missive in between assignments when he was bored.  It scares me a bit, because I can totally see him acting out his story. 

I think I am seeing a connection between the toaster and a ceiling fan incident years ago. 

So, with out further delay-  Here's my second grade son's story about the toaster.

The Toaster

  One summer day Bob and Mom were in their house eating toast.  Bob thought about what else you could put in a toaster beside bread.  You can put waffles, poptarts, and bagles.  He looked at the plastic bread from his play kitchen and thought what about plastic bread?
  He took a piece and put it in the toaster.  The toaster began to smoke and then it broke and made a loud BAM! 
  Mom rushed in the room.  Mom yelled at Bob!
  "Bob, only food goes in the toaster."  Mom sighed and said, "Let's go buy a new toaster."
  "Come Bob," said Mom, "Get in the van."
  Bob got his coat and got in the van.
  Bob loves shopping.

I didn't edit this.  It's truly his story and I doubt the teacher read this.  It brings back memories of a ceiling fan...This post is from the very beginning of my blog! 


I hope everyone is enjoying their summer breaks.  I am sure ours will be unforgettable...

Children come up with some of the greatest things. I find this amusing, because it is exactly the way he thinks. I am lucky he wrote it instead of trying it. I should be thankful for all the hours of Myth Busters they watch. He might have learned a lesson or two...
