Today’s things are: mirror, submarine, octopus
Our teacher Miss Teresa decided we would go on an excursion to the naval base down in the city.
We were all super excited and looked our best on the appointed day.
Before we embarked on the bus, we all checked our hair in the mirrors in the changerooms.
At the naval base, we were taken on board the submarine and showed around inside. It was small and cramped, and we could see Miss Teresa wasn’t happy in the tight confines.
After that, we walked along the harbour front and found an octopus in the shallows. We picked it up and showed Miss Teresa. Suddenly the octopus reached out a tentacle and wrapped itself around her throat. Within seconds the entire sea beast was curled around her neck, and she was frantically trying to remove it.
We all thought it was great fun seeing her wrestle with the octopus. Eventually, a passerby spoilt our fun by helping to extricate the octopus. Once free Miss Teresa ordered us back onto the bus and headed home. This was back in the days when I wish we’d had cameras to take a few photos of her struggle.
