Chapter 4

this morning the girls woke up with syrup in our hair thanks to a prank Joseph made up to get us back for taking too long in the morning. Good job. Now we have to take longer because we have 2 shower. First wae have to go to the taj mahal to meet the presiidentish person. we decided on my idea, since it was the only one that wouldnt get us in trouble with the government.
once we got there, the prime minister was doing an awkward pose that looked similar to a pretzel. we asked the attndant what hee was doing (the prime minister), adn the attndant said he was prayign to Buddha.
"i pray to Buddha," alex commented, "but i never wound up looking like osmething u buy at walmart."
"He's very.... into it," the attndant defended. while we were waiting, we noticed this short lady painting. (the lady is not painting, but there is a lady in the painting)
"who's that?" Gary wondered, "She's about as short as me"
"That's Indira Ghandi," James explained, "Wife of Mohandas Ghandi."
"That's correct, little boy," the Prime minister said, "You are very smart!"
"Why thank-" James started, "Hey! who are you calling little? I'm the tallest one out of all the boys!"
"HEY!" Alex screamed.
"Whatever," I said, "Stop fighting shorties"
But as usual, no one was listenign to me. James was too busy looking at a map of India.
"Did you guys know-" everyone groaned as he started "India is a subcontinent?"
"Uh... right." Jenny mumbled," You said that already!"
"India also has a bunch of deltas!" GAry mentioned.
"Wow.... I'm impressed!" Jenny said.
"D-E-L-T-A! what does that spell? Delta!" Helen cheered.
"um.. Helen?" Joseph asked.
"Yeah?" Helen answered
"Don't do that." He responded.
"oh.. okay." Helne blushed.
"Okay, i'm confused," I said, "what's a subcontinent and what's a delta?"
"A subcontinent is a country that has different geographic featrues than other parts of the continent," Jenny explained, "And a delta is sediment deposited at the mouth of the river"
"whoa," I laughed. "You have good vocabulary too!"
"what's your point?" Jenny asked.
"nothing... it's just if you and james werent family..." I formed a heart with my hands.
Everyone burst out laughing. Well, except for James and Jenny of course. James gave me an icy glare that made me go, "heh... just kidding!"
After taht moment, we were all sort of flushed adn quickly told the Prime minister our idea and left. After all our arguing adn joking around, it was almost 7. We ordered room service, chatted a bit, and went to bed.


in my dreams, it's as if the skies are painted,
it seems like such an easy job to do,
in reality, the skies are smoky gray
as apposed to that wonderful blue

in my dreams, the trees are emerald,,
with blossoming flowers, and green leaves everywhere
in reality, the treees are cut down to make
supermarkets taht sell products: food and hair

In my dreams, the grass is green
on EVERYONE'S side
In reality, where grass should be, there is dirt
no place for easter eggs to hide

in my dreams, everyone is polite,
no teasing, no hitting, everyone's just nice
in reality, lots of people are cruuel,
bullying, and insulting, not sugar, but spice.

why can't we follow the ways of my dreams?
(you're probably not listening, since we ignore each other quite a lot)
because of cruelty, pollution, and carelessness
the world is going to end a lot faster than we thought


I glan e at him a couple times
he looks at me
i quickly trun away,
scared that he'll see

in the hallway i just smile
as i pass him when i walk by
hee doesnt see me sometimes
if i said i didnt notice, it would bee a lie

when i'm near him i dont' breathe,
just trying to hold it inn.
im just casually talking to my frind
but inside i'm wondering where he's been.

when i'm with him and a couple of friends,
i act like he's just one of the others,
but deep inside he means much more,
than all of teh other brothers.

i think about him everyday,
riight before i go to bed,
but thinking I have a chance with him
is screwing with my head...

chapter 3:


after we got off the plane, we had a nive dinner and were laughing adn jking until helne and jenny strarted singign adn dancing and all eyes were on us. afterwards, we hasd dessert adn discussed ideas on what to do.

"we should let them deal with it themselves,"gary said,"and if they sy no, we shall make the hindu peopel eat cows!" gary obviously thought this was a great idea while the res tof us just stared at him.
"obviously we should let them make a salt factory, dn then they'll tke caare of it," joseph mentioned.
"yeah that could work. that was my second choice..." gary said
everyone just rolled their eyes.
"oh.. that could work... if there was SUCH THING AS A SALT FACTORY!"jenny screamed. eyes were on us again.
"um.. maybe we can evaporate seawater and teach thenm how to do it for their supply of salt!" i wondered aloud.
"but-"the boys all started.
"did you know that India is a subcontinent?" James asked.
"um... right..." everyone mumbled.
It's one am in the mornign. i van't sleep because the boys insisted on coming to our suite and telling scary stories.i got freaked out by oen story gary told about bunnies. to make a long story short, bunnies can be evil, even fluffy white ones... 0.0
