"Mr. Cheeto" by Clarice

This weekend, Clarice (14) cleaned up her room and came across this story that she wrote with her friends when she was in sixth grade.  I have transcribed Clarice's spelling and punctuation exactly as Clarice wrote it.

Mr. Cheeto:  Rough Draft
by Ellie, Ayla, Bekah and Clarice

Page 1
This story is about Mr. Cheeto and his life lesson.

One day Mr. Cheeto was hungry and wanted McDonalds.  He bought a big mac and brought it to work with him!

When he walked through the door he saw his girlfriend, Ms. Chubbington Muffin.

Page 3:  Hi, you have McD.

After saying good morning to Ms. Chubbington Muffin, Mr. Cheeto gave her a hug.  That's when Ms. Chubbington Muffin realized Mr. Cheeto had McDonalds.

Page 4:  Can I have a fri?

"Oh, Darling, may I have a french fry?" said Ms. Chubbington Muffin.
"No," yelled Mr. Cheeto.

Page 5:  You can't have a fri

"I paid for the McDonalds my self and I'm not sharing with any one," said Mr. Cheeto.  Ms. Chubbington Muffin started getting very angry.

Page 6:  You never share

"You never share anything, Mr. Cheeto," cried Chubbington Muffin.  "Don't you know sharing is caring?" asked Chubbington Muffin.

Page 7:  Break up

Mr. Cheeto said, "I can't stand you."
"Then we're over," yelled Chubbington as she hit Mr. Cheeto with took her purse and walked out of the door.

Page 8:  Lesson

It was at this moment Mr. Cheeto realized sharing is caring, as he went to apologize to everyone he hurt.


Name:  Mr. Cheeto
Never shared:  his McDonalds
Outcome:  Chubbington Muffin broke up with him
Lesson:  Sharing is caring

December Happenings

December is a very full month for everyone.  Just a few glimpses of what's been going on in our little corner of the world.

Happy birthday to me.
