Saturday Rocks! (Friday School Day 2)

(Written January 24,2015) 

Pierre woke up Saturday morning to a very sunny day and to Larry playing music. He went in the kitchen to make himself some cereal. The cereal he ate was Honey Nut Chex. He thought the cereal was just too irresistible to eat. After he ate, his mom told him to clean his room.

While Pierre was cleaning his room, he decided to sing another remix to the song “Tuesday” by Makonnen that went like this: In my room cleaning up, on a Saturday; Bring the dust pan and the broom cause it’s Saturday.” Then, Larry walked in and said “you are one irregular bro, but at least that’s not inappropriate like the real song.” Pierre laughed at his brother’s silly comment.

After Pierre was done cleaning the room, he followed Larry to see what their dad was watching. He was watching the news. They looked on and saw that someone killed an innocent person. Nothing new. Pierre said, “What?! Killing is illegal.” Larry said “No duh. People do it anyway.” The twosome brothers came up with an idea since their dad was so plugged into the TV. They played a prank on their father and muted the TV. Then they ran upstairs. Their dad said, “What? Who did that? Now the TV is inaudible.” The boys laughed from the top of the steps.

Before their father caught on, they went to their room and talked about the killing. Pierre said, “It’s impolite to kill people. That is why killing is one of my inabilities. Killing is just illogical and improper. It shows that some people are insecure. I think that the killer should be impartial.” Larry said, “Wow, that’s not irrational at all.”

Pierre and Larry then decided to start their homework together. Pierre looked in his folder to show mom a paper for a trip to the zoo. He ran downstairs  to give it to her. She said, “It’s a bit illegible, but I think I can read it so I’ll sign it.” Pierre was getting impatient waiting for her to give it back. He checked for her signature and saw a hard indent on the paper. He said, “Thank you!” Afterwards, Pierre went to finish doing his homework with Larry.

Once the boys wrapped up their homework, they went to the skate park. They saw their friends Adriana, Jack, Jah’leah, Karen, Mike and Lisa. When they walked up to their friends, Adriana challenged Larry to a skate battle. All the friends agreed and cheered them on. Larry fell on his face trying to impress Adriana, forgetting that he sucked at skate boarding. He instantly became embarrassed. His trick was so ineffective and imperfect that he became immobile and immovable. He laughed it off because he figured he was just an individual.

About Project 10 (Friday School Day Stories)

*A collaboration on short stories with the lovely 10 year old that I babysit! She calls herself A-Rock! What started out as homework spelling stories consisting of 20 words to place, turned into “Hey these can be interesting stories for the world to read!” She created the titles, I helped her form sentences while brainstorming on the plot as we go along.

A long writing process once a week becomes the awesome work you can now view anytime! 🙂 Just click on Project 10 (here or on my menu bar) to read them! I hope you enjoy her imagination with my added editorial ways to make it flow :)*

Friday School Day!

(Written January 16, 2015)

Pierre goes to P.S. 161. He loves his school. He loves science the most. Pierre also loves his mom, dad, and his older brother Larry. Larry and Pierre do almost everything together. This is how his first month of school went…..

It was the third Friday in the month of September. Pierre was getting ready for school. He made sure that he ate cereal with whole grain fiber because he was very particular about what he ate. He walked to school with Larry and they told funny jokes to each other. When they arrived at the school, the first bell rang. Pierre went to his first class which was Art.

Pierre’s art teacher taught the class how to make a barrier out of clay. When the class did it properly and neatly, the art teacher said, “Since you guys are doing such a good job, I see all of you as scholars in the future.” That was all the class had time for as it was time for the next period. Pierre headed to his next favorite subject….Science. His teacher, Mr. Revette, taught them about the solar system which was Pierre’s favorite topic.

After Science class came ELA. In ELA, his teacher started the session with grammar. Then he instructed a play. Everyone had to participate. The teacher was the director and the kids were the characters. Pierre loves to stand out and be the most upbeat character. His teacher got a kick out of his class clown ways.

Soon, it was lunch time. All of his classmates were surrounding him. They all were shouting “You’re so cool Pierre,” “Whoa, how do you keep your swag bro?” as they crowded around the lunch table. He said, “Well there is a rumor that I am and I would consider myself superior because of my razor haircut that’s straight in the back and curled in the front.” The crowd cheered. A girl approached him. She said, “You look familiar. Hmph. You’re not a regular kid either. You know what? You are similar to my cousin.” Pierre liked her attitude. They went to recess together. The school yard had so many acres of land to play on.

Pierre was walking down the hall to get to his next class. He started to sing a remix to “Tuesday” by Makonnen. Pierre’s remix is issued like this: “In the school learning less, on a Friday. Ignore the teachers and the books cause it’s Friday.” He was feeling quite triumphant as he is a junior and next year he will be a senior. At the end of the day, he went to play laser tag with his friends. He was the last one on his team so he pretended to surrender. Pierre was tricky! He shot all of the other members on the other team really quickly and won!
