My friend is a retardA young woman named YaÃ«l loved making art, and practiced colloring all day long to become the very best in all her town. But one day, she was completely stumped. She looked around her room, full of art pieces featuring mystical children, sci-fi landscapes of a futuristic Amsterdam, and a portrait of Joe Jonas that looked so real, you could start a conversation with it. But nothing inspired her. Had she really created everything there was to create? Depressed, she looked out her window, and made a wish on a nearby marker for inspiration to return to her. The next morning, she sprung out of bed, and used her skill in colloring to create the most beautiful deviation depicting mobiles flying anyone had ever seen. That night, she shouted out the window, "Thanks, marker!"
Wise AdviceMy great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after books because you'll only end up with a pen in your arm." I never quite understood his advice until one Pancake day, I was gardening with my best friend Elizabeth. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was darkish and spooky sounds came from deep within. Elizabeth saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again. Great-granddaddy was right!
