Ghost Story

Have you ever noticed that at OHS nobody gets trash-canned, swirlied, or their money to buy cookies stolen? Well, no one in OHS has the guts to do that because they know what the consequences are. Most people notice it but never think anything of it. There is a story behind it and whether you believe it or not, it is true.
            Tiny Tim is his name and no one knows his real age but he has been protecting the seventh graders for as long as any OHS student can remember. He has big, blue eyes, and he doesn’t wear any clothes but he is white, cloudy, and transparent. His voice is squeaky and he smells like cologne. He is always making jokes and though he is kind to the seventh graders he can still be very mischievous. At night you can find him in a different locker every night sleeping soundly and in the daytime he ambles around in the halls looking for high school kids that are bullying the new seventh graders. Tiny Tim is very cute, and only about 3 feet tall. “But how can he scare anyone if he is only 3 feet tall?” you ask. Well he has his ways!
Tiny Tim is always making up new tricks to get back at the older kids for picking on the seventh graders. Sometimes you will be sitting in class and out of the blue you’ll hear a shriek or scream followed by giggles and laughs. Then you start to smile because you know that some high school bully has learned their lesson. Or other times you will see someone spontaneously fall in the hallway and you know Tiny Tim was feeling a little rascally today. One of his annual tricks he does is hiding in the bathroom stalls, and when a high school student opens the door he jumps up and shrieks! If you happen to be in Mr. Hostert’s class at the time he does this in the boys bathroom you know that Tiny Tim is at it again.  Another great trick he does is if someone has been picking on a seventh grader again, he will hide in the vending machine.  When they bend over to grab the food they have bought, he will slide out of the slot and scare them so bad that they fall over!

Tiny Tim has always given seventh graders great relief and will continue to do so for a long time to come. Like I said, Tiny Tim is most certainly not just a legend, he is a protector of the OHS sevies, and whether you believe it or not he is definitely real.

Halloween in Hogwarts

As we enter the Grand Hall our eyes widen and we stop and stare at the astounding Halloween decorations. There are incredible decorations and lights. The glowing jack ‘o’ lanterns floating in the air are alive! And when you amble past them they talk to you! There are sparkling lights strung throughout around the room. Everyone is laughing and giggling. The air smells sweet like pie and strong like fresh baked bread.
         When we get to our seats and everyone has quieted down and delicious food appears on our plates. Every thing looks so yummy! There are tangy fruits of all kinds like mangoes, berries, apples, oranges, sweet kiwi, and any other kind of fruit you can ever imagine. There are also many kinds of meats such as chicken, steak, hamburger, and even juicy prime rib. There are also pastas like spaghetti and macaroni and cheese. Even nutritious vegetables are scattered around like carrots, peas, and golden corn. Everyone also receives their favorite drink. There are so many various kinds, ranging from just milk and water to Shirley Temples and pop.  I’m not even sure what some of them are! Lastly come the desserts. There are so many different kinds including puddings, warm pies, ice cream, brownies, cookies of all kinds, and many many more.
         The atmosphere is almost as great as the food. It’s very exciting and energetic. Everyone is having a blast and there are witches flying around and playing tag. There are also ghosts chatting and messing around with all the children. Many kids are saying how glad they are the feast is finally here. Others are exaggerating how full they are of all the amazing food.

         Over all, this feast was probably the greatest Hogwarts has held yet. Everyone is happy, even the teachers. When the feast is over all the children proceed to their rooms for a good night's sleep with full bellies. Most of all, everyone is thinking of how much they can’t wait for the Thanksgiving feast.

Nursery Rhyme

Baa, baa, generous sheep,
   Have you any
soft wool?
kind sir, yes kind sir,
enormous bags full;

One for my loyal master,
   One for my
strong dame,
And one for the
infant boy
   That lives in our
long lane.
