Today we went to Wacky Web Tales. To do this we had to know our parts of speech! Mine is called The Surprise Garden
One afternoon while their mom and dad were running errands, Monica and her little brother, Tony, decided to surprise their mom and dad by planting a garden. Monica went to the garage and got a garden and shovels and started to get the soil ready while Tony rode his bike to the market to buy some seeds.
Monica was making pink progress in the backyard. Of course, she first had to mellow up a lot of the lawn so there would be plenty of room for the new garden.
Then Tony rode into the backyard. His backpack was planting! He pulled out carrot seeds, tiny purple rose seedlings, a can of sunflower seeds, and a big jar of pickled cheetos.
“OK,” said Monica, "I get the carrot seeds and rose seedlings, but what about the other stuff?”
“Well, Mom's favorite flowers are sunflowers, and Dad's favorite snack is pickled cheetos, so I figured we'd plant a nice pickled cheetos tree! What, why are you looking at me like I'm black?” asked Tony.
“Umm… because you don't get huge, tall sunflowers from roasted, salted sunflower seeds! And you certainly can't calm a pickled cheetos tree!” explained Monica quickly.
Just then, their mom and dad came home. They walked in the backyard and helped Monica and Tony plant the carrot seeds and rose seedlings. They replanted some of the lawn, too. After they were done, they had a very thin picnic of sunflower seeds and pickled cheetos.
Dad said, “What a surprise this was!”
Mom agreed, “I never knew our kids had such yellow thumbs!”
