What is your dream young man?

Would it be the art of soccer?

A famous player running on excitement and nerves, audience watching.

Or could it be the art of guitar playing?

On a big stage, music vibrating, audience having fun?

Drummer, singer, bass, you’d make a great band.

Oh, I know what it is….

A fabulous car racer?

                    Let’s go! What car will I have today?

Ahhh, Ferrari?

                    Nah too flashy.

Ahhh Lamborghini?

                    Nah even more flashy,

How about an Aston Martin?

                     I’ll take that.

And after this?

                    I will drive in my new Aston Martin.

Veganism is a growing movement around the world and in Australia but lots of people argue against veganism. A vegan is someone who doesn’t eat dairy meat eggs fish or honey and whose diet consists of plant-based foods. There are arguments for both sides. Factors include animal welfare, environmental concerns, wildlife, and health. Some people think that killing and eating animals is natural but other people say that we don’t have to eat meat to live. What is your opinion should humans go vegan?

Alex: Hey Nelson! Do you know what you have to do?

Nelson: Yeah. I know what I have to do. I know my lines.

Fast forward:

Nelson: I know I know it looks pretty bad but it’s not my fault for burning down the school you see Mr Carffathatholis gave me a detention for playing with the Bunsen burner in class. (9th one this year) so I thought I would teach him a lesson for a change. So, you see it wasn’t my fault it was Mr Carffathatholis’ fault. You know he had it coming?….right?

Police and Mr Carffathatholis: Continue reading

I got an A on my homework.

Today I got a dog

And today I lied straight to your face.

You see I only tell the truth once a week and only to you.

Oh, and I love your shoes.

And that’s the truth.

I lie once a week

and I always tell the truth

even when I am not supposed to

Did I mention today is opposite day?

Well, I guess I lied.

Oh and I love your dress it looks cute on you.

I am better than Roger Federer at tennis.

It’s not a lie.

I have breakfast with a talking soccer ball,

in a 6 star hotel.

I invented talking and moving.

I invented language,

and I invented gravity.

I saw a pig flying, eating bacon.

Sausages speak Latin.

Flowers speak Mandarin.

Pineapple is the world’s longest word.

I am made of gold

and I own a dog.

I own Microsoft and Sony.

My friend owns Gucci.

Unicorns come from Europe.

Italian food is from Australia.

America is made of Lego.

The capital of America is Walmart.

I play soccer.

It’s all true, except for the last one.

I like soccer.

Messi is my favourite

soccer player

I play under 11’s

    my coach told me 

   to stay longer so 

       I can play under 13’s.

 

I always encourage

my teammates even when

they make a mistake.

  I  like

      to make

                through-balls.

I like doing stepovers.

Stepovers is when you put 

your leg around  the

ball so that the 

opponent thinks you’re

going one way then  

you go the other way.

            I love dribbling.

 Dribbling

            is when you’re 

          running with 

the ball.

I like to body feint.

Body feint is when you 

put your weight on

one side so the opponent thinks

you’re going one side then

you go the other side.         

        Curl  is  when  you

kick  the  ball

       in  a  certain  way

                                 so that it can change directions.

Knuckleball

is  when  you

kick  the  ball

and  while

it’s  in  the  air

it  changes

direction.

Ping is when you

    quickly kick the ball

     but instead of your 

            foot following through,

               it stays where the ball is.

             The ball goes straight up

   and forwards fast,

          people don’t expect it.
