Lesson 89 – Pretending

I like to pretend. 
I like to make up things that aren’t real. 
I use my imagination. 
I was pretending that I was in a time machine. 
I set the date for a prehistoric time. 
I turned on the time machine, and it buzzed and whirred and spun madly. 
When it stopped spinning, I opened the door and stepped out into a very thick jungle. 
I listened carefully to the sounds of the jungle. 
I could hear strange animal noises, and the leaves were rustling. 
I wasn’t sure if I had gone back in time or had just landed in a jungle somewhere in the twenty first century. 
It didn’t take me long to realize that I had indeed gone back in time. 
A very strange bird-like creature with a large beak flew overhead. 
I had never seen anything like it in my life. 
I took a few steps out into the long grass and ferns. 
I didn’t want to go too far away from my time machine. 
I heard a noise over on my right side. 
There was a man who looked quite different from me. 
He was dressed in an animal skin, and he carried a big stick. 
I didn’t want him to see me, so I hid behind a tree. 
He didn’t speak any language that I could understand. 
He grunted at someone who must have been in the distance. 
Then, I felt the earth shake beneath my feet. 
I heard giant thumps on the ground as the floor of the jungle shook. 
The man in the animal skin began to run. 
I saw why he was running. 
A giant dinosaur appeared above the tops of the trees. 
It was bigger than anything I had ever seen. 
My heart began to pound in my chest. 
It was coming toward me. 
I ran toward my time machine and jumped in. 
I set the dial for the twenty-first century. 
The machine whirred and buzzed. 
My time machine landed in the twenty-first century. 
I got away just in time.
