I think my dad is Dracula.
I know that sounds insane,
but listen for a moment and
allow me to explain.
We don’t live in a castle,
and we never sleep in caves.
But, still, there’s something weird
about the way my dad behaves.
I never see him go out
in the daytime when it’s light.
He sleeps all day till evening,
then he leaves the house at night.

Black Sticks beat India to take series
The Black Sticks have beaten India in their latest International 6-2 to completed a clean sweep in their five match series. Striker Olivia Merry scored a double in the first quarter, Pippa Hayward, Natasha FitzSimons, Sam Harrison and Kirsten Pearce all added to card for the Black Sticks. Head coach Sean Dancer said despite the win there are areas the side needs to work on. “There are certainly areas we need to get better at, but I thought the performance today highlighted some positive things we’ve been working on,” he said. “To their credit India were tough, but a couple of our goals scored were scored through strong striker actions and that’s very pleasing.”
Goldilocks - a thief?
We all heard the story when we were little kids about a sweet blond who was hungry, so she got into the home of some bears to eat.
She was a good kid. Right? We all liked her and heard about her again and again.
Now think about it. If you are hungry. Would you get into someone's house?
Not only that she got into their home and ate the bears dinner, but she also BROKE THEIR CHAIRS!
That's already private property violation, theft, and vandalism! Enough to put you behind the bars for some time.
But that's not enough. She also went to sleep in their beds!
So that also adds an illegal house occupation attempt!
I think that it's all a big conspiracy trying to teach the young kids that stealing is fine and recommendable.
So were we fed with tales about a sweet girl, or about a thief and vandal?
Because it telling me info about the black sticks.
It entertaining because most stories are entertaining .
