They say all great people can laugh at themselves – I’m about to find out how great our students are – can they laugh at themselves.?
The following bits of creative writing came out of a hilarious conversation with my son a couple of weeks ago that had us rolling around. We actually came up with 20 – 30 story examples, but here I’ve just written down two of them. Whilst my son was part of that conversation, i take full full responsibility for the end product.
Incidentally, I should also say that none of the characters portrayed are based upon any individuals though they might bear a vague similiarity to a few people around.
Of course, if anyone – parent, teacher or student wants to try their hand, you may also like to write something in a similar genre for contribution.
Noddy’s trip to the beach
“Big ears, why don’t we go to the beach in my car today? The weather’s so lovely. “
“Array, yaar Noddy. How can we go in your silly little car? It only has TWO seats. Where will the didi sit and where will she put all the water bottles, packets of Lays crisps in case one of us has gone more than 15 minutes without our essential food additives? You need to get an SUV, my friend.”
“But we won’t be driving on the beach, only on the roads“ replied Noddy.
“You still need an SUV, one with those big chrome shiny bars around the front – in case any peasants step in the road and get in the way. You know, those people who walk from place to place! And it has to have tv screens in it – how would we survive a journey of more than 15 minutes without TV?”
“Oh, those poor people! Fancy walking! Pass me that packet of Zour bombs, yaar.
The Famous Five (plus a couple) Go Camping
Rahul, Sandeep, Pinki and Lovely (and not forgetting Prince the pedigree dalmation), were very excited about going on camp. Didi rachita and didi archana were not so happy about going on camp, (but then it’s not their business to be happy!).
“Pack the Reeboks, you paghal. Not those other cheapo ones!” screamed Lovely at the long suffering rachita. “Sorry, didi,” she responded averting her eyes politely.
“Have you got batteries for my PSP?” queried Rahul. “I’m up to level 9 on Blood Lust 6. I’d just die if I had to go for two days without playing.”
“Uggh, you’re so gay,” laughed Sandeep. “I’m taking papa’s laptop and internet card so I can talk to my cousins in US on Facebook, yaar. Papa didn’t want to give it, but when I told him I would fail all my exams if he made me unhappy, then everything was OK. Olds are so lame.”
Pinki stamped her foot – “Just promise me this camp site has no dirt. Please, please promise me. I can’t stand dirt. And proper mirrors so i can do my make-up, otherwise I shall just die. And I need another suitcase now. These two are full. Where am I supposed to put all my shoes? This is horrible. Will there be A/C in this tent thing?
Lovely went in to a panic – “Where’s my i-phone? I haven’t spoken to Bubbly for half an hour. She’s gone to the mall this afternoon. I wish I’d gone to the mall. I can’t go on this camp. I have nothing to wear!”
Prince lay down in the corner, wondering whether anyone would remember to take him for a walk. Probably not, they all seemed very busy. ………………………..
