Teddy goes face to face with his Grandfather and it does not go well

Teddy was a turtle and his dream was to go and see his grandfather, so that was exactly what he was going to do! The next day Teddy was up super early so that he wouldn’t be caught up in traffic by any fish. He had a long journey in front of him and he was nervous that he wouldn’t make it but on the-other-hand he was very excited. Teddy was now about 10 miles away from his home and he had been travelling for 20 minutes. Suddenly, as he was travelling a huge whale passed him and it was about 100 times the size of him! Luckily, the whale was going the same way as him so Teddy grabbed onto his fin and he was moving a lot quicker and 15 minutes later he reached his grandfather’s house. Quickly, Teddy let go of the fin and he went  to the front door; he tried to see if the door was open and luckily it was. Slowly, he made his way in very quietly because he wanted it to be a surprise. He saw his grandfather and counted himself down:

“5,4,3,2,1 SURPRISE.”

“AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH,” screamed his grandfather. ” Who are you and what in the world are you doing in my house?”

“I’m your grandson,” Teddy said nervously.

“No you’re not and get out of my house or I’ll call the turtle’s authority.” Sadly, Teddy left and he was very sad that his Grandfather didn’t recognise him.

  1. Hi Matthew. Thank you for adding your story to our blog. I wonder why Teddy’s grandfather didn’t recognise him – maybe something related to our dementia training? I enjoyed the bit about ride with the whale – very clever! Next time, make sure you remember to out in your commas as you missed a few. You did use some good phrasing though. keep it up! Well done. 🙂
