Adventures for Leap Year Day
I wonder what I’ll do tomorrow with my extra Leap Year Day. It will be a Tuesday, so I’ll have to go to school unless I catch the flu tonight and I really don’t feel like throwing up for hours. So I guess school would be more funtastic than the flu. Dad’s on a SEAL mission, so he won’t be here to bug me about doing my math homework. I wish more than anything that he’d be home instead of on a dangerous mission, but I suppose some terrorist or spy would get away if Dad’s not there. Mom wants me to practice an extra hour for the spring ballet recital since I have a lead role this year.
The Day My Way
What adventures would I want on Leap Year Day if no one were telling me what to do?
1. Go to the highest peak in Colorado and ski down it. Playing SkiMagna on tVid with Tommy always gave me an astro thrill. I’ve always wondered what it feels like in real life to go swish-swish-swish down a snow-covered mountain. Suppose I should take skiing lessons first.
2. Play underwater with the dolphins. Real dolphins out in the ocean, not the ones you pet in a big tank. I’d love to look a dolphin in the eyes. Maybe a dolphin would let me ride it. I wonder if I can reach China riding a dolphin. Wouldn’t that be astro!
3. Dance barefoot in a sunny meadow full of flowers. The meadow needs to have soft grass without any sticky thingies to hurt my feet. I feel on top of the world when I dance around with sunlight on my face. There’s not enough sunlight in our ballet studio. I’d dance all afternoon and then pick flowers to bring home for Mom and me. Jackie really isn’t into flowers or dancing. Sometimes I feel like I have an older brother, but she does like to wear Mom’s perfume.
4. Sit on the beach and watch the sunset. Then wait a little longer until the stars appear. That’s the most astro way to end any day.
That’s my blog, and I’m sticking with it.
