Attack of the killer boredom
Pete loved being busy. In fact, his mother would always say he’d never been fat because he never stops moving. He would always invent new games to keep him entertained. On his way home from school he would see if he could get home in less than two hundred points. This is how the points break down:
Each step is 1 point.
Every dog spotted is 5 points.
A red car is 3 points.
A white car subtracts 1 point.
If you see a mailman you add ten points.
If you step on a bug you subtract 2 points.
If you step on a crack you add 2 points.
If you forget to look both ways before crossing the street you add 50 points (his mom made him add this one)
So needless to say, sitting still was not on his list of things to do. Then Pete got mono. The next fews weeks would prove to be the most lame and yet creativity satisfying of Pete’s young life. Join Pete as he writes the best choose your own adventure book anyone will ever read! To see Pete chase his dreams go to page 41. To see Pete whine about being sick and stuck inside go to page 2. To see Pete befriend a dragon go to your local video store and rent Pete’s Dragon (you won’t regret it).
