I know I haven’t written in a while, but I say that in every blog, right? So we had just arrived in Lagos, Portugal and when we entered port, I wondered if they had any McDonalds. Then I got their song stuck in my head. You know the one that goes like ba ba ba ba baaaa? The one they show after every commercial? Anyway, a few days later we started packing for the next city. Seville. We did a bunch of educational stuff blah blah blah, I had the experience of a life time blah blah blah. I’ll just cut to the chase here. We went to the science museum and almost the entire second floor was dedicated to one exhibit. Can yah guess? I’ll give you three tries. Dang, your a good guesser! It was dedicated to poop. Good job. Back to the subject, the entire second floor showed different types of poop and showed what was wrong and right with the poop. Poop. That’s fun to say! Poop poop poop poop poop. They showed a viking turd that was bigger and longer than my arm. Sorry if you were about to go to lunch. Well, there’s one city. Next paragraph!
So we were back on the road heading to yet another city: Madrid. This is where we would meet and team up with the super shopper, Aunt Doris! (super hero noise) In case none of you know aunt Doris she is my mother’s friend and rival tennis player. In Madrid she spent a lot of money. No, seriously, she spent like, 200 dollars. Dad said there was a pool at the hotel. There was! It’s just that it was closed because it was too cold to go swimming in 85 degrees. Obviously. Anyway, we started off going to another science museum. This wasn’t as fun as the poop museum, but it was cool. It showed what we would look like if we had evolved from dinosaurs. You don’t want me to describe it. Trust me. There was a cool TV that read barcodes and made images pop up. You held out a square shaped piece of plastic with a barcode in front of the TV and Bam! you have a dinosaur in your hand. When you looked down at your real hand you were still holding the piece of plastic, but on the TV it was a dinosaur. Just to make sure no one got confused. We went shopping the next day. It was only me, Mom, and Aunt Doris but we still had fun. Aunt Doris bought a fur coat and I got one of two birthday presents! I got an awesome pair of original Aviator sunglasses. My Mom said that when I wear them I look like Tom Cruise. On the way back we went through the park. Oh man, there was this playground with a climbing wall and a really long fireman’s pole. Before they knew it I was already halfway up the climbing wall and struggling to get my slippery shoes onto the next rock. When I got to the top, I looked down the fireman’s pole and there was a Spanish mother blocking the landing zone. I was stuck up there for five minutes while I debated with myself whether to jump down or wait until she moved. I was getting in position to jump when she finally moved. I reached for the fireman’s pole and looked down. Landing zone clear. I jumped and hugged the fire pole with my feet and hands. As it turns out, the reason no one else was on the fire pole was because it was really sharp and uneven. So, when I jumped and made contact with the pole I immediately let go and fell 6 feet onto the ground. What do yah know. I was fine. I had actually landed on my feet. I must be a cat. I’ve looked around my face for any signs of whiskers and or hair. I haven’t found any yet. So for the next few days we hung out, ordered room service, and watched Dragon Ball Z Kai. We were at the part where Goku and his son were about to battle Sell and decide the fate of the world using the ultimate super saiin combo move when Mom and Dad told us to go to bed. Unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to Aunt Doris because she was flying back to Minnesota.
So we were back in Lagos with my birthday towering before us in three days time. We went Birthday Cereal shopping. In case none of you know what Birthday Cereal is I’m going to tell you. On your birthday you get one box of junky cereal. Examples may include: Lucky Charms, Froot Loops, Cookie Crisp, Reeses Puffs, and so on. This year I picked out Crunch cereal and Gordon picked out Kellogg’s Kraves. On my birthday I received one more gift. A bag of balloons! We ended up filling them with water and freezing them to make an ice sphere. That leads us here today while I’m sitting here typing supposed to be reading my book. Well when we get to Grand Canaria I’ll probably have something really funny but until then, you guys will have to wait. See you in a week!
