Goldstein House
4th Grade Goldstein House (Class of 2028) created this nonsensical tale as our first step in exploring how Search Engines, such as Google and Bing, work.  
My mother always warned me to not open the closet door outside of my bedroom.  But one day, I was anxious to know what was inside so I opened it. As I opened the door, I was sweating and my foot got stuck in goo.  There was a monster inside that had a tattoo saying STUFF on its head. I didn’t know why it has the word STUFF on its head so I asked, “Why does it say STUFF on your head?”  

Then the monster threw up goo. That’s when I realized that the goo I stepped in was from the monster and then I started to get a little scared.  The monster reached inside of its pocket and gave me a toy unicorn. I went downstairs to ask my mother why I couldn’t go into the closet. She said, “Because there’s something inside that’s very precious to me.”  The monster walked downstairs and blew up.

Then I woke up and I realized it was just a dream.

But I was still holding the toy unicorn and it started farting rainbow sprinkles.  I went to the closet door again and opened it again. The monster handed me another toy unicorn. Suddenly, the toy unicorns grew and grabbed me by the shirt and went floating off with me dangling below. 

I heard my mom crying and realized that I had gotten impaled by the monsters’ little buddies’ horns.  Then the unicorn took me in its mouth and I got farted out, with a rainbow trailing behind me.
