“SNIFF”The smell of ice-cream hit my nose. I heard a loud “DING.” A glimpse of joy approached me. The ice-cream truck had arrived. All the flavours, toppings and ice-creams. YUM. I’m guessing it’s so hard to choose as the line is not moving. Finally, I get there. The man says he had run out of ice-cream and to come back tomorrow. SERIOUSLY!

What am I looking for?

The most interesting paragraph about Ice Cream.

Word Limit: 60  Due: 24th March

An Example:

Before is boring

I got up that morning and got dressed quickly, ate my breakfast and ran to school. The bus for camp was leaving at 8am. Myra and I sat together and we ate lots of chips and lollies in the back seat. It was a really boring trip. We stopped at a place for lunch, and everyone ordered hamburgers which were yuck. We finally got to the camp and everyone was really tired and went to bed. The next day we went on a bush-walk and Myra fell in a hole and it took two hours to get her out. Camp was really good.

 After is Amazing!

Camp was really boring until Myra fell into a hole. We were walking along this dusty track, pretending to look for birds, when suddenly her foot slipped. She gave a sort of grunt and the bottom half of her body slid right down a hole while the top half stuck out on the track!

‘Help,’ she cried. ‘My foot’s caught!’
