Editors note: The Citizen Telegram is teaming with Highland Elementary School to publish and recognize a selected writing sample from one student each month of the 2015-16 school year.

Between the time of 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. I got stuck in a hot glass snow globe. I started to spaz out, but I said, “do not spaz out, Brooklyn.” I could not get out. I said, “ah man.” I had planned to go to an old movie with my friend. Her name was Emelyn.

Later, I tried every thing. I used a red blow torch to make a big hole in the glass. It did not work. It made smoke and snow go everywhere.

Next, I asked Hulk if he would smash the snow globe, but he said he had to save the world. I felt so sad. Waaaa! Waaaa! But then Hulk said, “don’t cry, it’s my job.” I stopped crying.

A while later, I started to dance like a pretty ballerina. I hit the sparkly hot glass with my foot on purpose. I said, “ow! Oh no! My sparkly hot snow globe.” Whew, It did not break.

At last, the snow globe fell off the shelf and broke. I got out. Hip-hip-horray.
