An improvement I hope
Bob, this sounds like it could be fun if done right.
It would create a great visual image. I will attempt one =
of the eight. I really would love to tackle 5 6 and 7 =
but would probably get carried away.
Each boy is an Octopus that lives and is supported by
all of his eight members or not supported by each.
He relates to other otopuses that either have eight
or don't have eight.
Unused: The adult octopodes do everything and I hang around.
Unused: If they're not here, I have nothing to do and I
Unused: don't know how to take care of myself anyway which
Unused: is OK because I watch the fishes play inside of
Unused: the electronic aquarium with my remote.
Unused: The older octopuses get to do everything, I wish I was older
Unused: The more agressive octopuses get to do everything,
Unused: Oh Well they are fun to watch.
Unused: Gee I wish I could do that or do this. I guess its fun =
Unused: hanging around, but I sure wonder what I would be like
Unused: with an eight leg like some of those other octopuses
Unused: I read about.
Used: I myself am learning and know how to catch and prepare my food
Used: and others in my small group enjoy eating what I Do
Used I am playing with the other octopodes my own age and we
Used: are playing, organizing, teaching, and roughing it.
Used: Hey I want to be the next Patrol Octopus Leader
Used: With only 3 to 8 of us we get to do everything.
Used: It's fun leading the other guys, and wanting to do =
Used: good for them.
Used: Hey I want to be the Patrol Grubmaster, and Patrol Squirter
Used: If I don't do my job the Patrol doesn't do as well.
Used: "Due to my Patrol Leader Experience and having helped
Used: " my fellow patrol octopodes advance I would be a great O-SPL"
Used: I can do almost anything cause I am doing it
Used: "No one waits on me, I am a doer octopus"
Used: "Hey Tommy Octopus you have to go trench camping with us
Used: "you are our Patrol Entertainment Octopus, what games
Used: "are we going to play in our Patrol. Besides you are
Used: "scheduled to catch lunch on Saturday.
Used: "Tell mommy and daddy You Want to be with us you got
Used: a Job to Do and we need you"
Used: "Parents and Adults, are nice to have around to talk TO"
Used: " but I don't seem to need them so much anymore"
Used: accept for our Patrol Adult Leader Octopus who somehow
Used: does something.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
