Interview With Oupa

I'm going to interview my oupa about the types of food they had when  he was my age so here we go.


Me:"So Oupa what types of food did you have when you were younger?"

Just by the way most of my family lives on a farm or used to live on a farm.

Oupa:"Oh, we had lots of fruit on the farm when we visited our Ouma and Oupa.  We picked grapes and peaches and all sorts of fruits.  For breakfast we used to love to eat Mealie-meal porridge with milk and sugar sometimes also bacon and eggs. Sweets.... let's see we had Chocolate, Smarties, Toffees, Liquorice of all sorts, Ice cream, Suckers (Ice Lollies) and candy but that's all I can think of right now."

Me:"Oh, the sweets must have been delicious and the fruits! oh I remember back in South-Africa how sweet and sour the fruits were!Those were the good days in South-Africa, anyway I'm sure Oupa needs to get back to work so we'll just wrap this up"

Oupa:"Okay I'll chat with you later"

Me:"Okay see ya later Oupa"

And I guess you guys are just gonna have to wait later this week for my next Blog post.

Green Day

   I know some of you guys and girls aren't Green Day lovers but I am, so I'm going to write about them.Green Day is actually pretty cool if listen to the good songs like American idiot,Boulevard of Broken Dreams,Shes a Rebel and Good Riddance etc etc those are good songs at least that's what I think.

The first time I started listening to Green Day was when my older brother introduced it to me in 2011 that's when I got my Ipod I know that most of you got in 2010 or early 2011 where I got mine in the middle 2011 I think.The first song I heard from them was American Idiot and I thought it was okay then I started looking at other songs that was created by them and I found Boulevard of Broken Dreams and that has become my  favourite song ever.

I like other bands too like Skillet,Coldplay,We Were Promised Jetpacks and Yellowcard and I would love it if you guys and girls would tell me what bands you like and what section it's from,and if you want to know why I would like to know what bands you like is I'm doing an little experiment about which is the most popular band in each type of music like rock,pop etc so please do that and thank you for reading this

The Tale Trail of :The Elephant and the Butterfly

Recall of The Elephant and the Butterfly:

Once upon the time there was an Elephant called Horton.
He came across a Butterfly called Miss.Fitty.
He tried to catch it but Miss.Fitty turned around and said

"What do you think your doing fatty"

"Oh no you didn't!"

"Yes I did"

"You better shush or else you'll grow up without one!"

My Tale Trail:

"I don't think so buddy!"shouted Miss.Fitty

"Oh I think so!"replied Horton

"Your bluffing"murmured Miss.Fitty

"Yeah well I'm not"snapped Horton

"Well if you do that I'm going to get the mice out!"shouted Miss.Fitty

"You wouldn't! would you?"asked Horton

"Yes I would"said Miss.Fitty

"Okay okay I'm sorry,will you forgive me Miss.Fitty"asked Horton

"Only if you forgive me Horton"said Miss.Fitty

"Okay I'll forgive you"said Horton happily.

And they lived happily ever after.

Annoying Best Friend

It happened in the afternoon after school,the fight I had with my Best Friend,the biggest fight I ever had with her,and I'm going to explain what  had happened.

"HEY CHELSEA WAIT UP!"shouted my Best Friend Ashley I call her Ash for short.

"Oh hey Ash"I said

"What's wrong?"she asked,

"It's none of your business"I snapped

"Wow calm down I was just trying to help"she snapped back

"Your telling me to calm down fatty!"I shouted,

"Now you've gone to far twinkle toes"she shouted back.

She knows how much I hate that name.

People started crowding round us and started chanting, "FIGHT FIGHT"

 "Bring it!" I shouted

"Alright"she snapped ,

everyone stopped shouting when they heard Mrs. Bridge shouting "What's going on here?!" she saw Ashes hands up then saw mine and said with her head shaking "I'm so ashamed of you two girls"

"But Mrs!" I shouted

"No buts!"she snapped

"Yes Mrs.Bridge" I murmured just loud enough so she could hear

"Now you two girls come to my office"She said.

Did I mention that she is our school Principal, huh guess not but anyway later that day we made up  and we actually fought over nothing.
