A young woman named Martha loved making art, and practiced painting all day long to become the very best in all her town. But one day, she was completely stumped. She looked around her room, full of art pieces featuring mystical cats, sci-fi landscapes of a futuristic Denver, and a portrait of Bill Gates that looked so real, you could start a conversation with it. But nothing inspired her. Had she really created everything there was to create? Depressed, she looked out her window, and made a wish on a nearby painting for inspiration to return to her. The next morning, she sprung out of bed, and used her skill in painting to create the most beautiful deviation depicting foxes hunting anyone had ever seen. That night, she shouted out the window, "Thanks, painting!"
Don't Chase Bees!
My great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after bees because you'll only end up with a pie in your arm." I never quite understood his advice until one July 4th, I was gardening with my best friend Suzy. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was scary and spooky sounds came from deep within. Suzy saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again. Great-granddaddy was right!
Once upon a time, there was a young boy named Benjamin who always dreamed of becoming the world's best cook. He trained every day for 14 hours in order to beat his rival, The Excellent Menace. The day of the big competition arrived, and Benjamin came armed with a pie and his unstoppable determination. They were pitted against each other in a battle of wits, and Benjamin emerged as the esteemed victor! His achievement is celebrated every Christmas.
