The following story was written by Carole Bennett, from Dominion, Nova Scotia. Carole attends class with the Adult Learning Association of Cape Breton County, Sydney Reading Circle. Carole lives in Dominion, Nova Scotia and gets along well with everyone. Carole likes to spend time with her family, especially in the summer. She enjoys attending Clubhouse and shopping. Carole's favourite subject in school is spelling, but she also likes math sometimes.
If I won millions of dollars I would go to Hollywood and get a new home. I would get a job and learn how to work. I would meet people and have friends. I could leave Hollywood and go to Florida. I would and go on rides in Disneyland. I would see Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. I would learn to speak French and go to French restaurants and eat fancy food. I would go to movies and meet new friends. I would shopping with my friends. I would travel back to Hollywood and spend some time in my new house. I would buy a small plane so that I could travel. I would learn to fly it myself; I’d take lessons. I’d have a driver for the times I just wanted to sit back and relax. I’d also buy a new car, a big shiny red one, a sports car. I’d learn to drive that too. I’d have a driver for the car as well.
I’d give my parents, my sisters and their families money. I would take them all to Disneyland with me. Wouldn’t that be great? I’d take my family to those fancy restaurants with me. We’d all be very happy.
