Hey everyone! I’ve been busy in college so I have more important things to do than blog, however my son has tons of time on his hands to fool around! He would like to share with you his crazy experience concerning a museum far, far away…
How My Civil War Museum Trip Turned Out to Be
Alright, so I went onto the bus preparing to leave for my field trip and I came across the driver, which, from my point of view, looked like my 6th grade teacher. Then I took a seat and I looked around and I saw these off-topic and off-season mini cut-out posters scattered about the walls of the bus and a picture of a U.S. army guy (who was probably her brother or something). Then after maybe an hour and a half of driving and waiting (because we were going to Kenosha to go to this place), our bus group was finally at the Civil War Museum.
Now when I got there, I had to hang my coat and “any other things we had along with us.” Now, I’m thinking about that statement thinking, “Like what else are we going to have with us? An iPod? A stereo system? A portable mini television [I wish!]?” After that, we had to take a seat in a room that looked like I just walked into Majestic Cinema (a fancy movie theater in Waukesha). Then we sit down through what seems to be a three and a half hour presentation of some-guy-I-forgot-the-name-to. Now, there’s a table in the corner of the stage, right? Well, he (fortunately) had the annoying tendency to lay his hand flat on the table every 25 seconds at least 30 times. Now, at least he’s not the most paranoid human being in all of the universe and he goes like this every 5 seconds counting, “Uhhh………ummmm……”
Another thing that he would do is, well, there’s a chair in the middle of the stage, right? Well, he will have the annoying tendency to sit on that every 5 seconds. After two hours of that nonsense, we had to go to another museum (for some reason) just to go and eat lunch. After that was finished, we started to head back to our original location. Now it was time to see the mannequins and exhibits that were awaiting our arrival. But, I got this 85 year-old tour guide (his name was Jack by the way) who tended to shake a lot whenever holding something and he seemed a little paranoid. I turn over to my language arts teacher, Mr. Jorgensen, and told him what I noticed about him and he said to me, “It must be his age. Probably Parkinson’s Disease.” After the exhibits, we had to ride all around a certain area of Kenosha (because I can’t remember what specific city in Kenosha we were in at the time) inside a streetcar. It pretty much depended on electricity and gas, but that’s probably about it. Then, I don’t remember what happened other than the two-hour bus ride back to school. Despite that, the trip went very well for me. By Scott Jr. (13yrs.)
I wonder if my son learned anything–probably that old people are kind of creepy. Those are the jokes folks, see ya’!!!
