“Oh my gosh! Mrs. Bair is juggling eggs!” I thought to myself.
Before Mrs. Bair juggled three eggs, she juggled two erasers. That did not go so well. One eraser went over Mrs. Bair’s head and the other one went to her shoulder. Quickly, the class was going wild hearing the news that Mrs. Bair was juggling eggs.
I said in a scared voice, “Yikes!” out loud. My face looked really scared! Before Mrs. Bair juggled three eggs, she juggled two eggs, and that went really good.
Then, Mrs. Bair added the third egg. Most of the class scooted back so we would not get covered in yolk. I also just got the outfit I was wearing, and I did not want yellow yolk all over it. So, Mrs. Bair started.
At first it was going really good until two eggs were in the air at once, and Jayden caught the first egg and the other egg went “SMACK!!” on the ground. I said, “Oh no!” but then the egg did not splatter on the ground.
Then, I got the joke … the eggs were hard boiled eggs. Mrs. Bair was juggling eggs because she was practicing for the talent show. “I am ready to see Mrs. Bair juggle eggs for the talent show!” I thought to myself. We all laughed after that.
I think Mrs. Bair needs some work on juggling eggs!
