OFF THE BEATEN PATH
Past adventures and other fun stuff
Last month my friend Maxwell and I went
zip-lining in the jungle. The sky was blue and the
air was sweet. When it was our turn to go, Maxwell stuffed me into her knapsack and away we went. Everything was perfect until we turned the corner and saw an alligator waiting with knife and fork in hand. What do you think happened next?
Luckily, as we got closer to the alligator, he sneezed. Everybody knows that you close your eyes when you sneeze, and that’s exactly what he did. We zipped right by him at the exact moment he closed his eyes, and escaped being his
lunch. Phew! That was close. We made it to the other side, safe and sound.
