Jake and The Flying Carpet

The latest edition

Over the years, I’ve shared stories my son Jake has written for his English class. Some pieces, like this one, I don’t understand why or how they give him a certain grade. This one received an 88 – he was close, oh so close to getting that A.

Have a seat and enjoy Jake’s latest creative writing piece (all spelling and word choice are directly from his paper):

Jake and The Flying Carpet

“Waka, waka, waka, waka, waka, waka, woo” beeped my alarm clock. The annoying sound of my alarm clock woke me up in a flash. The smell of golden pankakes wafted into my messy room. The baby blue sky looked gorgeous as I gazed out the window sill. As I looked over, I felt my Golden Retriever, Winston, kissing me. I could tell this would be an amazing, extraordinary, and fantastic day.

Immediately, I rushed down stairs and into the kitchen to devour my delectable pankakes. When I finished eating, I rushed back to my room to play video games. When I was finally upstairs, I noticed a midnight black and fire orange striped carpet laying on the floor. Then, when I sat down on it, it started to float! After I played 2K II Baseball for an hour, I told my mom about the carpet.

Soon, I decided to go outside and test out my flying carpet. As soon as I was outside, I sat on the carpet and it wouldn’t fly. I sat on it for two hours and it still wouldn’t move. I asked my mom to help. It wouldn’t budge. I called some mechanics and they wouldn’t come.

Later, it still wouldn’t fly. I had been trying and trying and trying and trying but it still wouldn’t work. Then I had an idea. It was to throw a pie at it. So, I grabbed some pies out of the fridgid fridge and tossed them at the orange and black carpet.

“It worked.” I shouted to myself. So I flew on my pie stained carpet for about an hour.

In a nutshell, today was a great day. I had a great breakfast. I played video games. I threw pies. I was even able to ride a flying carpet. All in all, today was a magnificent day.

    • Yes, he’s developing his own style of writing and I love that he’s using his imagination. And of course, it wouldn’t be a story without mentioning sweet boy Winston. 🙂

    • I like to think that cupcakes are on the list to fix anything too. Yeah, it’s a shame the mechanic wouldn’t come out but at least he figured out how to make it work.
