My Roller Coaster

. . . I think I’m going to design my own roller coaster. It will be the fastest roller coaster in the world. It will go higher and fall at a steeper angle than any other coaster. My roller coaster will be so scary, that most people won’t dare to ride on it! But I don’t care. Those who are brave enough to take a ride will have to pay $ 100.00 for a ticket.
. . . My roller coaster will have a very frightening name. I’m not sure what it will be yet, but just hearing it spoken will scare you. Maybe it should be called Too Bad For You. I’ll have to think about it.
. . . It will be famous all over the world. People will visit my amusement park just to see it. Newspapers and magazines will write articles about it. All the television networks will feature it in their news reports. Authors will write books about my roller coaster. It’ll be great!
. . . I’m sure this is a wonderful idea. I’m sure I can really do this. I’m not so sure that I’ll ever ride on my own roller coaster!
