I found out that manster is writing short stories for fun. I thought they were homework assignments but he's doing them to pass the time. Here's a snippet from a story about adentures he describes. I am probably biased but for 11, not bad. _____ Over a far arctic tipped mountain I traveled through a mile wide river of rushing water around a searing volcano of molten rock and fire. I traveled arouned the world, climbed the mattahorn I did. Dived off nagra falls and mount everst was a piece of cake. But yet nothing prepared me for my biggest advenute yet - dinner on a mashed potato mountain, a river of gravy, a deep ocean of pop, peas, an avalanche of peas, an appocalypse of steamed brocoli. My biggest adeventures the snow tipped pile of dirt, a stream of water an inch wide, a spot of dirt where the sun made it hot, a rock resembled the matterhorn and tree dripping water like niagra falls. Mount everest was a big tree stump. Yes, imaginations can be wild but my back yard gives me the greatest adventures yet.
