Intermediate Language Lessons: Lesson 215


Leisl's English assignment for today was to write a travelers' guide for the place in which you live.

If she had to write this assignment "straight" she would probably slip into unconsciousness before she could finish. Here at the Mishmash school, we definitely live *outside* of the box.

Here is her assignment in it's entirety.

Fasten your seatbelts... it's a bit of a wild ride.

The Visitor’s Guide to CahootsandKunundrum

Welcome to the wonderful region of CahootsandKunundrum, home of the Bifocal Birdies and the Flubberly Flootes, which all dance and play under the polka-dot sun.

At the northernly-southern tip of CahootsandKunundrum, there is a wonderful city called Monkey-in-the-middle. Of course, it’s at the bottom of the Purple-n-green goop-and-jello-sea, which you go through by swimming in the rowboat that is at the end of the three-mile dock on the half-mile shore.

As you walk through the wonderful rubber ducky gate of Monkey-in-the-middle, there is a wonderful view of Mt. Hood, which actually has an umbrella on top.

About five inches to the left of the wonderful Purple Uggboot Street is a wonderful cafe` called Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. They serve the most wonderful Styrofoam panninis on Laundromats.

If you head toward Lutfi Lane, you’ll find a wonderful park called 1.93263827 square inches. Here you can blow bubbles and ride on the merry-go-round that spins at 3,756 miles per hour.

There is also a wonderful viewpoint hill called the Director’s Chair, where you can look upon the planet of Tatooine to the South, and the city of Hobbitton to the North. Wonderful visitors are often known to gather here and take dozens of wonderful pictures.

On your way down from the Director's Chair there is a wonderful shoe shop, where you can buy anything from bunny slippers to Hobbit feet.

Be sure to drop by the Millennium Falcon, a wonderful ride that takes you up out of purple-and-green-goop-and-jello-sea to the constellation Coconut Oil with Oatmeal on my Face, and back down to the upsidedown skyscraper.

To depart, get back into the underwater rowboat which will take you back to the three-mile dock on the half-mile shore.

Come back soon!
