We’re Finally Here

At around midnight last night when we finally turned off the lights and went to bed, the whirring AC clicked off and the room went stone silent.

Then there was a scraping sound. It got louder, and my eyes shot open, listening. I wasn’t sure what it was but it was coming from the window. It wasn’t until I heard the truck whir past that I closed my eyes again and snuggled back under the covers, knowing it was nothing but traffic.

“It’s the loompa loompas,” my mom hissed in the darkness.

Loompa loompas?

I had no idea what she was talking about. But no matter, I almost jumped out of bed and rushed to the window to see the “loompa loompas.”

Albuquerque!

Here’s a test: can you spell Albuquerque?? Look at your neighbor and challenge them now. . . Challenge yourself.

Makes you think. Yeah.

I found this out when I texted my dad: “We’re in Albuquircue.”

He replied: “Seems like I’m not the only one who can’t spell Albuqurqeu.”

So I thought I’d share this intelligence test with the world. How intelligent are you?

I give myself a B+ for creativity.
