Ahoy, mateys! We thought we’d pop in to give you an update on the Summer Smackdown Reading Regatta!
Brady: So far, I’ve read Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and I’ve started Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Oh, and so far my kickstarter, I got to count Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Auntie Obvious: Well, I just finished reading The Hobbit, and I’ve started on The Fellowship of the Ring. BOOM! 250 Points! WOOOHOOOO! How many points have YOU earned so far, Brady?
Brady: About 3,500.
Auntie Obvious: Ok. Well done, then.
Brady: How about if we change the rules?
Auntie Obvious: Why would we change the rules?
Brady: Because I’m totally eating your lunch. We should make it competitve.
Auntie Obvious: OK, I’m listening. What do you have in mind?
Brady: I’ll give you 3,250 bonus points, which makes us tied.
Auntie Obvious: What’s the catch?
Brady: Two Twinkies.
Auntie Obvious: Nope. How about half a Twinkie?
Brady: One Twinkie.
Auntie Obvious: OK. Pleasure doing business with you, Sir.
