“Trix for breakfast… again?” But when I snuck on everyone was calling me “Rookie” and “new mascot” I went along with it. But… the blast was bigger than I expected and… well… those kids are no longer with us. But he must’ve known what I was going to ask and before I could open my mouth to ask he quickly said there were rocket blasters and launchers if anything went wrong. She told me to walk ALL the way to the cereal factory and find out how hard working cereal factory workers are! “Do you know how hard people worked to make that?!?” He said that this was the “Trix V1” and since it was only the version one there were bound to be LOTS of bugs. Oh I hope nothing goes wrong… but then he pressed a button on his panel and the man disappeared and I was blasted off. I’m Audie Ace and my mom is coo coo for cocoa puffs. My mom was coo-coo for cocoa puffs.

I tried to explain to them I wasn’t the guy they were talking about, but there was no hope! The factory was- like- ten miles away, but luckily there was a boat to the factory for employees only. Some kids were putting these colored and shaped foam pellets in their mouths and talking about how good it was. My mom looked like she had just seen a GHOST! The guy said that it was made of titanium alloy to protect me from the fans. Apparently there was a commercial going to be shot like the ones that used to be on TV where I would try to get the Trix with disguises, but I was not having it. Now all I needed to do was figure out how to explain the hole in the roof to my mom... My mom was SERIOUS on not wasting food. “I’ve been having this stuff for DAYS! I said while I threw away my cereal. So I used my game controller-like controls to use the megaphone feature. I want something else.” This looked like something straight out of Iron Man.

The day I Became a CEREAL MASCOT

 

By Samaadi Scott

 

“Trix for breakfast… again?” “I’ve been having this stuff for DAYS! I want something else.” I said while I threw away my cereal. Hi. I’m Audie Ace and my mom is coo coo for cocoa puffs.  My mom looked like she had just seen a GHOST! My mom was SERIOUS on not wasting food. Just then I realized my mistake. My mom started SCREAMING. “Do you know how hard people worked to make that?!?” Her face looked as red as a tomato. She INSTANTLY kicked me out the house! She told me to walk ALL the way to the cereal factory and find out how hard working cereal factory workers are!

 

I couldn’t believe it! My mom was coo-coo for cocoa puffs. But was there anywhere else I could go? Besides, what could possibly go wrong?

 

The factory was- like- ten miles away, but luckily there was a boat to the factory for employees only. But when I snuck on everyone was calling me “Rookie” and “new mascot” I went along with it. But when I got there they told me to get in a costume! I guess I hadn’t thought this through.

 

I tried to explain to them I wasn’t the guy they were talking about, but there was no hope! It was all because of my big mouth. I tried to escape them but they grabbed me and shoved me into the suit!

 

Wait- suit? That’s right, the costume was actually a SUIT! Then a guy showed up on the screen! This looked like something straight out of Iron Man. He said that this was the “Trix V1” and since it was only the version one there were bound to be LOTS of bugs. The guy said that it was made of titanium alloy to protect me from the fans. Wait- fans? What fans? But he must’ve known what I was going to ask and before I could open my mouth to ask he quickly said there were rocket blasters and launchers if anything went wrong.

 

Oh I hope nothing goes wrong… but then he pressed a button on his panel and the man disappeared and I was blasted off. Oh no. I went to Six Flags yesterday! Suddenly I was flown to a fan site where there were news and camera people EVERYWHERE! Apparently there was a commercial going to be shot like the ones that used to be on TV where I would try to get the Trix with disguises, but I was not having it.


Some kids were putting these colored and shaped foam pellets in their mouths and talking about how good it was. But I was mad. I didn’t want to see Trix again. So I used my game controller-like controls to use the megaphone feature. “Attention, all viewers. These foam pellets are not food at all these Trix are foam pellets and this isn’t just milk… it’s covered in a layer of glue so the food dye doesn’t make the milk look all fruity.” and with that I took my blaster and EXPLODED the Trix! But… the blast was bigger than I expected and… well… those kids are no longer with us. But you know why it’s okay? BECAUSE THEY WEREN'T EVEN KIDS! THEY WERE ROBOTS!!! THEN I EXPLODED THE ENTIRE SET WHICH WAS JUST… A GREEN SCREEN!!! NOTHING WAS REAL!!! THEY WERE ALL ROBOTS!!! Then I blasted back home and hid the suit. Now all I needed to do was figure out how to explain the hole in the roof to my mom...
