Funny Answers Pt. 7

Question Hey, Average Boy!

Have you ever played baseball? It's lots of fun. My mom's cousins' kids taught it to me. But it might chop your head off, so I don't really recommend it. I REALLY like your stories in the Clubhouse magazine. Are you going to write more? I hope so.

P.S. Can you please write a story about time traveling into the past? That is my most favorite subject in the whole world!

AnswerHey Rachel,

Baseball might chop off your head? Are you playing with a bat or an axe? I am going to write more stories as long as you keep reading them. And I’ll know when you stop because I just finished my new time machine . . . but that’s another story.

Question Dear Average Boy,

Try reading a book! I always have my head in a good book. I am only in third grade, and I’ve read practically all the books in the school library and it’s huge — and I mean huge! You could have great adventures in books, so try reading to solve boredom.

AnswerHey, Shelby.

Great advice! You inspired me so much that I went to my library and grabbed a book off the shelf. Unfortunately, it was a pop-up book so when I opened it, a big lion came rushing toward me.

Did you know they won’t let you scream in the library? You are also not allowed to run. That’s a good thing to know before going there. I have, however, read a few less scary books since I got your e-mail, and reading is awesome! In fact, I’m going to make this e-mail short so I can get back to the adventure I’m having in my book.

Question Dear Average Boy,

Today was sad for me because I got dumped by my sixth girlfriend! Whenever I get sad or mad or any other feeling, I ride on my bright yellow unicycle. It's fun when I ride it, because people pass by in their cars, smile, roll down their windows and say, “Good job on your unicycle.” I always say thank you, because it's good manners. Average Boy, do you do anything more interesting than riding a unicycle?

AnswerHey, Parker!

You've had six girlfriends and still find time to learn how to ride a unicycle? Wow! I've never had one girlfriend, and I can barely bounce on my pogo stick!

My first advice is to slow down on the girlfriends. If you're going through that many girlfriends, maybe God is telling you to take a break. He will provide someone for you when it's the right time (like when you're 30). She will probably roll up on a pink unicycle and say . . . uh . . . actually, I don't know what she'll say. I never know what girls are going to say, which is probably why I have plenty of time to practice bouncing on my pogo stick.

My advice is to keep making people happy by riding your unicycle! God's given you a talent to make people smile.

Your friend and mine,

Average Boy
