|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.
