Sprite was very pleased with herself. “I have done my Easter holiday homework already!” she said. “Now I can enjoy the holidays.”
“That’s very creative…” I said.
“I know” said Sprite. “Imaginational Dabrowski helped me.”
“You might need to write a bit more to explain it” I said.
“Isn’t it obvious?” asked Sprite. “In The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy 42 is the answer to everything and in the Hokey Pokey song it says ‘You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn around and that’s what it’s all about’. See, I even put the references in the footnotes.”
“I’m SO sorry!” said Intellectual Dabrowski. “I tried to help her! I really did!” “She was supposed to write an Easter essay titled ‘That’s what it’s all about’. I told her about what all the great thinkers, the philosophers and poets and scientists had said about the meaning of life and supplied all the references. And she said “Oh blah, blah, blah” and asked Imaginational to help her!”
