[Brady]: Well, only a couple more weeks left in the Reading Regatta, then I start Middle School! ::groans::
[Auntie Obvious]: Dude! Middle School is going to be awesome! Don’t you get special privileges like free coffee?
[Brady]: The only special privilege I’ve heard of from Middle School is boredom.
[Auntie Obvious]: I think you will be pleasantly surprised. So…I hear you had a book to read for your school. Did you finish it? And did you read anything else?
[Brady]: OK, I finished C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, which was my school summer reading book and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, which scored me 1,000 points! OotP is one of the best books ever!
[Auntie Obivous]: Dude, I was sad for like a week after I read that one! It was sadder than Old Yeller!
[Brady]: To continue my point from last week, Old Yeller was not sad. It was because the owners didn’t care enough about him to give him a stupid rabies shot. Well, that ends my temper tantrum of the week. Sooooo…I have a total of 4,460 points. Plus an extra 200 point for the Point Break selections, for a total of 4,660 points.
[Auntie Obvious]: Agree to disagree on Old Yeller. I also read The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, plus I read my Book Club book, which was Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Whew, I definitely need some happy reading after that one. Maybe some Captain Underpants.
[Brady]: We’re too mature for Captain Underpants.
[Auntie Obvious]: Speak for yourself. Uranus jokes are ALWAYS funny. So my point total is 2,700. What’s your Point Break selection for the week?
[Brady]: My selection is The Kind Little Truck: The Right Thing. What’s yours?
[Auntie Obvious]: Mine is the first Brady Washington, Kid Historian: A Story About America. I was going to do that one for Fourth of July, but I forgot! Sometimes you forget stuff when you get old.
[Brady]: Oh, like that time when we played tennis, and you forgot your phone, and we didn’t know what time it was and when I was supposed to be home. Anyway, Book Sailors, I sure hope you enjoyed this Reading Regatta Update from the first sentence to the last sentence.
[Auntie Obvious]: SAY THE LAST SENTENCE.
[Brady]: The last sentence.
[Auntie Obvious]: ::sighs:: Keep Reading…Sail On! ::slowly bangs head on desk::
