Some Writing by Room 13 about Living and Giving

Tonight I am making hamburgers with crunchy lettuce, tasty tomatoes, juicy pineapple and meat with rib sauce.
I made them for my Aunt Kerry and cousin Keegan. It was on Thursday. I had to set it up for Thursday evening for my parents and my aunt Kerry and cousin Keegan. I had to get a watermelon, to cut up with a sharp knife, but before that I had to set up tables to cut up the watermelon.
When I finished cutting up the watermelon I had to put it on a plate and cover it with glad wrap.

Everyone had a job and mine was finished. By Duncan New
