"What's your plan for the day?" His mother asked.
"I'm going to build a time machine," Colton blurted out.
"You're going to build a what?" His mother said.
"Oh...I'm reading a book on how to build a time machine," Colton replied.
He tried to think of a good spot to build his machine.
That's it, my old tree house, he said.
In his backyard, Colton walked over to the tree house and set the box down on the ground then he climbed up the ladder into the tree house. Wow, this will make the perfect command center, he thought. Colton then tossed out a rope then climbed down to the ground. He tied the rope around his box then climbed back up into the tree house and pulled up the box. He dumped the contents of the box out on the floor then he took the sack lunch out of his backpack and took a bite of his sandwich while thinking of what else he would need. Batteries, I need batteries, and plenty of them, he said through a mouthful.
