Feb 2, 2007— Another short story from my son, eight-year-old Zachary Castor:
One day, Me, Tyler, Nicholas, Ben and Elly were playing on the trampoline. We were having fun when some pirates took it away. We ran to the house. “Mom, Dad! Mom, Dad!” I said. “Pirates took the trampoline!” said Nick. My Dad (who’s name is Ken, very smart) said, “those are the neighborhood pirates… You guys and me are going to find them.” And we set off on our adventure.
We heard “Ho ho ho ho it’s a pirates life for me!” “Pirates!” said Ty out loud! “Arg. Who said that!?” said the captain. “Uh-oh,” said Elly (who is cute). “I see you!” said a pirate. “After them!” We ran away as fast as we could. The end.
