One day, Mo was home alone and reaaally bored. He knew the girls weren’t coming home for awhile so he decided to make a list of things he could do to past the time
- Finger painting
- Draw with sidewalk chalk
- Play with legos
- Make a fort
- Write notes to the girls
Writing the list took a lot of brain power out of Mo so he ended up falling asleep after number 5. When he woke up he looked at his list with new eyes.
Hmmm I don’t have fingers.
I ate all the chalk yesterday.
Legos sounds fun!
So does a fort!
And I would like to make something for my favorite people!
I KNOW. I’LL BUILD A FORT OUT OF LEGOS FOR THE GIRLS TO PLAY IN WHEN THEY GET HOME.
Smiling smugly to himself for being such a super genius, Mo pulled out the legos and started building. He built and built, sometimes pausing to reevaluate, sometimes drawing architectural sketches, tearing down, starting over, until FINALLY 3 hours later, he was DONE.
THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING FORT. MY FRIENDS WILL BE SO HAPPY.
Mo gave a contented sigh and settled down in excitement waiting for the door to open and the shouts of glee to commence when his fort was discovered in the living room.
A few minutes later he heard a jingle of keys.
OH BOY OH BOY
The knob turned and Alia walked into the room.
Mo held his breath.
He watched as Alia hung up her keys, glanced over at Mo
Oh hey Mo!
And walked back into her room, closing the door behind her.
Mo was devastated. Alia didn’t say anything about the fort he had labored over for so many hours for her and the roomies?!
He cried and cried and cried
Soaking the floor with his tears.
Sami came home to a balling caterpillar and wet floor.
Mo! What’s wrong?? ALIA! MO IS CRYING!
Alia came running out
What is the matter Mo??
Y-y-you didn’t say anythiiingg
About the HUGE AMAZING f-f-fort I made for you guuyss!
Alia and Sami looked at each other.
Aw Mo, I’m sorry!
Mo rolled over and there it was
A pile of 5 legos.
It took me hours and hours and I made it for you because I love you so much and I wanted to surprise you and I was hoping we could sleep in it tonight!
Alia and Sami couldn’t hold it in any longer
They laughed and laughed and laughed
And tackled Mo for a big hug
