Chapter 1 – Story 1
Ouch, you are hurting my back, move to the right, stop standing on my left side … move over ..Puleeze (please)! Some of you people just don’t know how to walk… you move like a sack of potatoes, all (1)wonky and lumpy… come on move to the right!
I feel so old, I know to you, I am nothing but a piece of steel and you feel as if you just have to stand there, worse some of you run and stomp and jump up and down on me… oh my back… my aching back. Oh! Oh! here comes trouble! Every day this lady, I know her name, but I can’t tell you … but maybe I will, Mrs Kimble.. she brings her baby and feeds her Ice Cream .. She is doing it again, and oops.. I could cry.. Every day the kid drops the ice cream into my grooves.
Shudder, shudder, yuck, it sticks in my grooves and mixes with your very, very dirty feet…… there it goes around and around. I have a good mind to … yes I am going to do it. GRRRRRRRRRRIND! (grind)SCREETTCH! (Screech) Bam! STOP!
I’ve got the power! POWER ! Now you just have to walk, no more riding on my back.. get off, of my back and stand to the right ………..I am getting old. They should recycle me.
Do you know what I am? Some people confuse me with the other E- Word, but I am much longer … Ha-ha-ha-ha! and stronger and I am everywhere.
