About 2 months ago, when I learned that Google Reader was shutting down, I became a bit concerned when I thought (mistakenly) that I would no longer be able to access my old blog site, My Baking Adventures.
My grand plan was to transfer many of my posts from the old site onto this site – a slow, painstaking process, considering there are 3.5 years of entries languishing in cyberspace.
However, now that I have mastered Feedly and Bloglovin’ (but I still can’t get that dang Mac TimeMachine to work – grrrrrrrr), I am able to easily and smoothly start moving things over. And it’s not just recipes that will be resurrected, there are a few literary gems buried deep in the archives that will once again see the light of day.
So, without further adieu, here is a classic example of Alexander’s creativity and thought process – from October 21, 2010 – when he was in 6th grade:
Before you read this post, I feel an overwhelming desire to issue a disclaimer. Better yet, a warning: Alexander wrote this yesterday during English class ~he had completed his assignment and was trying to think of something to do. His teacher told him to be creative and write a short story.
So he did.
Don’t say you weren’t warned..……
Alexander’s Story – by Alexander
This is a story about a story that has to do with this story. The story doesn’t really make sense but this story is weird. I really don’t understand this story but it’s about this story. The story is interesting but nice. I didn’t know why to write this story but I did because you know it’s story-ish. I only wrote this story because I felt like it. Don’t ask me why I wrote this story.
