The War Has Begun Essay

1582 words - 6 pages

Hello my name is Daniel, and one day we decided to ask our parents if we could all climb Mountain Perry. We all wanted to go skiing. My dad asked who was going and I told him that all of my friends were going. He said it was alright as long as James Green wasn't allowed to go. I also had to ask my dad if we could borrow the car to drive to the Mountain, he replied with "as long as you are the only one that drives it. I then answered with a sarcastic "OK". We took the Toyota Prado to Mountain Perry. We loaded it up with a Bar fridge filled with beer, healthy things like Carrots, apples and the most important thing lots and lots of Chocolate. We loaded all our Sleeping Bags, Swags, Tents and everything else that would not fit in the Prado into the Paddock Bomb.When we got to the top of the Mountain we set up camp, it was near the peak of the mountain, we went to sleep after that we forgot a torch, so we had to do to sleep as soon as it turned dark. The next morning Jess Peret, Tim Drew and Fred Smith went skiing while Jen Mellow, Greg Buzz, Tony Zammill, and I, Cleatis Sapa went snowboarding. All the people that could snowboard tried to teach all the people that couldn't snowboard, it didn't work to well, Jess hit her head on a rock when she fell and got a black eye, Tim drew was going all right until he tried to show off by trying to Ski uphill yes that's right uphill, he rolled back down the hill, he created a small snowball that he was in, it didn't stop until it hit Greg and I. Fred is a real sportsman but found this really hard and cracked it, he had a temper tantrum and headed back to camp crying. Fred said that he was not trying and did not want to embarrass anyone by how good he was, no one believed him.That night we roasted Marsh Mallows and a few bits of pig that we named James Green because it reminded us of him. That night we all went to sleep when the moon was in the middle of the sky. The moon kept the sky lit up. During the night I went sleep walking and walked to the fridge, I got a block of chocolate out and a knife to cut it into small bits, I started walking over to the flat rock that we cut all our stuff on, I tripped on it with the knife pointing towards my chest, if Fredrick wasn't having a mid night snack all my friends would have woken up to the smell of bad chocolate and a dead person (me).The Next morning we all got up and had a meeting to decide what to do today. Jen Stood up, but before she could say anything she was hit in the face by a snowball thrown by Greg. That is what happened for that day, a massive snowball fight. It soon turned into the snowboarders onto the Skiers. I am not sure who won because we all had casualties like Jen got a black eye from the first snowball thrown by Greg, I got and instant bruise from when Greg and Fred hit me one after another in the same spot and Greg and Fred both had sore arms from throwing so may snowballs. That night we all went to bed exhausted. We were all in bed asleep before...
