Kids, let me tell you a story from when I was younger. I loved how my life was going. I had many friends, was at the top of h class, and was the star of the swim team at my school. I could swim faster than all of the other kids in The state of Hawaii. I was a mermaid; I swam so well (metaphor). I loved to swim, and did so every day, since my house was right next to the ocean. I had a few dolphin friends so I said hi to them, just like I did every other day. I began to swim, then everything changed.
I didn’t recognize the water I was in, and I was going slower than normal. I was confused, so I looked back to the land. It looked similar, so I continued swimming. I saw a dolphin that looked

Many things flew from my fingers, but I couldn’t control when it happened or what came out when I tried. They all confused me, because none of them were regular fish. They looked similar to fish that existed on earth, but they had a twist. Some looked like a mixture of a shrimp and a catfish. Once, when I was eating dinner, a creature came out that looked like a mixture of a whale and a walrus. Creak! (onomatopoeia) The table groaned(personification) under its weight. It landed on my food and I was very upset, because it was my favorite type of soup. I did discover that I could get the bigger ones to disappear after five minutes, so I didn’t have gross fish lying around my house. The tiny ones stayed, but I just ignored them. I kept trying, but I couldn’t get the hang of my powers.
I continued trying until I went to sleep. There was one tiny creature that kept trying to escape, but I just ignored it. When I woke up, I got some breakfast and watched the news. I was quite worried when the news anchor announced that there were rampant fish aliens in the city pool. I decided that I must try my best to save the world. When I got to the city pool, everyone was screaming. I focused as hard as I could to make the fish aliens disappear, but they were too tiny. They were multiplying very quickly, and there was nothing I could do to stop

I spawned so many, they could have covered the globe(hyperbole)! The nice fish aliens ate the evil fish aliens, and I saved the world. Immediately after I saved them, I was featured on international news. I was on cloud nine (idiom). I had always wanted to be famous, but I never expected it to happen in this way. I wanted to be famous for swimming, but being famous for saving the world was good enough. I managed to get control over my powers, and eventually figured out how to get rid of it. I continued to have a long, happy life. And that, kids, is the story of how I had the power to spawn fish

    Being a little nervous for my first lesson, I stood sheepishly by the side of the pool waiting for my instructor and fellow swim mates. Once the lessons commenced I began making a lot of new friends and the instructors were always patience and understanding. As soon as I entered high school my first incentive was to join the high school swim team, taking my now love of being in the water and swimming as exercise into consideration. It wasn’t as fun as I had hoped, the early morning and competitiveness really got to me, as opposing I really did enjoy the team meetings and opportunity to travel to various locations. I had realized that participating, as an athlete on a swim team wasn’t for me, I moved on to another…

When we got to the Coral Gardens, it was very different from the Barrier Reef.…

Wave after wave, day after day, summer after summer, the years passed faster than ever. Every day with the sun I woke up to run on the beach and then after some breakfast, I would paddle out for a day on the water. Spending every waking moment I could in the ocean told me I was like a fish dancing around the waters.…

    Still beset with fear I mocked Maria as she poured her soy sauce into the little dish and then proceeded to place pieces of ginger into it. I am sitting there really playing it cool, inside. However, I was working hard to keep my lunch down. When the rolls arrived, I put a few rolls of the tuna maki on my plate, this time mocking Adam. Despite my encounter with sushi in the past, I was not prepared for this classier rendition.…

    I have an appointment in October. The tone of the doctor’s Healthy Weight, Healthy Lives strategies was an explanation to a child, with little or no intelligence.
