Guest Blogger: “I don’t see the point in the Olympics; It just makes famous people tired…”
Guest Blogger: Son of Sanstorm. My son (8) was a bit short of cash, so we did a deal. He has agreed to blog for me today.
Olympics. I don’t see the point. It just makes famous people tired. And why give away all that gold, silver and bronze? Why don’t they just keep it?
And the Olympics happens every FOUR YEARS. Next time the Olympics happen I’ll be in S1 and my sisters will be in Primary 4 and Primary 6.
Everyone else is really excited about the Olympics and I just don’t get the point. The point is to glue everyone’s eyes to the TV and I am just left playing by myself. Well, I don’t really play, I am just very bored so I normally ask my mum and dad what to do but they don’t answer – and tell me to be quiet because of the Olympics.
I saw the opening ceremony of the Olympics and I don’t see why they use so much effect ’cause it would cost loads of money and all it does is the two points I’ve already said. The only part I liked about it is the bit about children’s fantasy because you saw Voldemort, the Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Peter Pan.
I have watched a little bit of swimming and tennis. Today at a meal I heard that one guy yesterday fell off the diving board. I think it would be quite funny but it might also hurt a little bit.
I think I would be good at gymnastics, hurdles and basketball.
I only know one competitor’s name. He is called Usain Bolt. He is the fastest man in the world and is competing in the Olympics.
The Olympics has affected my life a lot this week because almost all my friends, my parents and almost everyone else in the whole world is watching the Olympics, but me. And also my mum, because she is glued to the TV, can’t do any shopping, so we always have a really, really, really, crap lunch. Some salmon, and pepper and a sandwich – I’d rather have a toastie or pizza.
I think we have got sixteen gold medals, thirty-six bronze and fifteen silver and we are third, USA second and China is first. Sometimes I call myself British and sometimes I call myself Scottish, but I don’t mind. I don’t really mind who wins because I don’t really see the point in it.
My mum is totally fat but she wants to get thin over the autumn by doing a marathon every day, practically. I just think she is going to stay fat because I’ve never seen her thin in my whole life that I can remember. I think my mum would not be good at hurdles, boxing, netball or gymnastics.
Imagine her doing gymnastics: helplessly hanging from the high bar, looking like a fat blob…
After the Olympics I am looking forward to using my new schoolbag and pencil case in P5.
