Ugggh! Why does my head hurt? Why am I behind bars? Where am I? I start banging on the cell door and I hear loud footsteps. They are getting closer and I am starting to regret yelling.
So this big man comes up to my cell and yells, "Why are you banging on the cell?"
I say, terrified, "Where am I?"
The guy laughs. "You are here because last night you had a gun fight with some very bad people. So then I showed up and knocked you out. Then I put you in my van and we came here."
So I say, "Where am I?"...no answer. I say, "Why won't you tell me?"
"Because I can't," he says.
So he leaves. Now all I know is how I got here. I don't know where we are or when I can leave. So I lay down and fall asleep. I wake up to a guy yelling. I look and this guy is fighting that big man. All of a sudden the big guy swings and hits the prisoner in the head. Then complete silence. Read more »

My worst habit is I read really, really late! Once I read 'til 12:00 am! I've tried to keep track of the time but one minute it's 8:00 and the next it's 11:00! Another time I set an alarm but the clock ran out of batteries! Arggg! I was sooo mad! But then again, even if it did go off it probably would wake my sister so I'd get in trouble. A third time I tried to go to bed earlier so I could read until 8:45 but I just got more reading time in because I stayed up 'til 9:00 every night. I was disappointed and so now I only sometime sread a book before I go to bed. But then I just still can't go to bed until 10:30! So for now, I'm stumped.

I was going up to my floor in a big old rickety elevator. About halfway up it stopped! I thought I was done for but then I saw a guy sleeping in the corner.
“Hey! Get up! We're stuck. And you need to get me out!” I yelled.
The guy opened one eye and said, “Get yourself out. I'm sleeping but if you really want to get out my fee is $180.00.”
Then he shut his eye and I started freaking out.
“What do you mean get yourself out? Once we get out of here I demand a lawyer. I will have you locked up. This is not a funny matter. This is life and death and if you do not wake up right now...I will um, um I will, um, um I will not share my um, um...candy bar with you!”
Once I said that the man jumped up and said, “Help! Help! Help! at the top of his lungs and I yelled, “Stop yelling. Someone's going to hear you and they will think you're dying or something.”
The man looked at me like I was stupid, then said, “That's the whole point – to have someone come and help us.” Read more »
