Traveling to My Future!

What do you want to be when you grow up? Don’t you wish you could grow up quicker? Well, welcome to my time machine that can bring you to the past or to the future! Now’s the time for all your big dreams to come true . . . zzzzzzzzzzzz!

The next thing I knew, I was in the future. . . . I woke up, staring unbelievably at the crystal chandelier hanging on top of my bed. I was in a radiant bedroom with a large gold-trimmed bed and a big furry husky on top of me licking my face. I giggled and patted the gigantic dog, who wagged his tail and left the room.

I opened the closet and looked through the elegant clothing. Finally after a long time I picked an outfit. Then I ate breakfast and went to work.

I was surprised when I parked right in front of a muddy, windowless brick house. I opened the door a crack and peeked in. Inside there was a set of stairs and some lockers. I slowly opened the door and walked in. I went to a locker and fiddled with the lock and then . . . it opened! I looked inside and it was empty, but a brown uniform was hanging on the very back. I pulled the uniform up on top of my clothes and walked up the stairs.

The day of work was very fun and confusing. We went to all kinds of zoos and animal shelters, we stomped through caves and forests studying and taking notes on all the animals we saw, and I finally realized my job was being a zoologist.

That night when I arrived home I was greeted by the same husky. It was really late, so I grabbed some food and got ready for bed.

The next morning, when I woke up, I was in the time machine again! I really enjoyed my visit to the future!
