I can’t think of anything good to post about, so I guess I’ll just post about life. Yesterday we went to the awesomest store ever (that everyone should go to) called Archie Mcphee. My dad gave me $2.50 to spend on whatever I want. I got this big, awesome, bendable fake mustache!!! On the box, they gave us a bunch of ideas for styles to make. These were the names: The Quick Draw, The Friendly Barber, The Dapper Dandy, The Frowny Bear, and The Stern General. My favorite is The Dapper Dandy (of course!). You know how Mr. Secrest assigned us that project about a skill or life lesson? Well I’ve been thinking I’ll do something about having tin foil balls in my locker. The life lesson could be that “strange things can be wonderful, even a handful of garbage.” Do you think that’s a good idea?Some books I’ve been reading lately (that are good) are: The Frog Princess, I’d Tell You I love you but then I’d have to kill you (reeeeeally good book!!!!), The Red Pyramid, and the Magickeepers series. I know it’s sort of weird and long, I just thought you’d like it if I’d post. Bye!
