One day two little boys named Jake and Jack were playing together. They were playing with some trucks that had been left around and having a great time!
Jake said, ” My Mom’s car is really big. You should see it!”
“Really!” Said Jack. “How big is it?”
“This big!” Said Jake holding out his hands.
“No!” Said Jack. “You’ve got to be joking! That is HUGE!”
“I am not joking.”Jake insisted “It really is that big!”
“Ohhhhh!” Breathed Jack out loud before he realized it. He could not comprehend a car of that incredible size!

One day a little boy named Evan was sitting outside looking at the cloud filled sky.
Slam! The house door opened and Evan’s father came out of the house.
“Son. There is a big world out there. Filled with many beauties and dangers. I just want you to have this,” he said, handing him a map.
And that is where the adventure began!

Kallie thought that this was the moment. The moment when Zak would ask her THE question. She crossed her fingers, muttered to herself, “Oh, please, let it be TRUE, please, please, please!”
Zak reached behind his back. “Kallie? You know what I’ve been telling you about for a while now?”
“Well, you see, I have this ring-”
“And I was wondering-”
“You were wondering what?”
“I was wondering if you could read this small print. You have better eyes than I do.”
Kallie fainted.
