I just bounced off of one of the “big, red balls.” Paul made at scrunched up face at me after I made this big and glorious entrance in the water and I looked up from the pool. Paul and I were on one team and Sean and Bryce on another on the friends’ edition of the show “Wipeout.” The team who wins will get $50,000 and we need it. Since we’re still in college, we need the money for a college fund. We both have to finish the obstacle course and get a good time to move on. Paul is waiting for me at the other side of the “big balls”. Sean and Bryce are just ahead at the “Trippity, Skippity, Flippity, Do”. Most of the other teams are behind us. We catch up to Sean and Bryce. We make an attempt at the “Trippity” thing and we get wet. Paul and I make it to the finish pad with a time of 9 minutes 13 seconds. We move on. Sean and Bryce score a minute higher, but they move on too. At the end of the competition, they shall announce who wins $50,000. After all that pain from the obstacles and belly flops and after all that water, Paul and I win the 50 grand.
I want to be a LEGO designer. I study engineering at Tufts University. Paul, my best friend since first grade is studying robotics at Tufts. We live together in a dorm room right now, because we can’t afford a house. Sean and Bryce are at a college in Boston. Sean has a job to pay for college as a drive-through manager at MacDonald’s. Bryce and Sean both live at home right now and they take the train to school. I think we’re all going to graduate on time next year.
I am 30 years and I live in Encino, California. California has weird cities. I work on a LEGO design team. One of my designs includes a LEGO Star Wars Republic Tank. I have wife and a golden retriever and two kids. Paul also works for the LEGO company and sometimes we play around with some of the bricks. We build random stuff and show it to the boss and see if they can become products. Another one of my creations is for the LEGO minecraft series called the Desert Temple. Paul has a dog too. Sean lives in Hollywood. He is a lights manager on movie sets for live action movies. Sean has a wife and two kids. Bryce still lives in Massachusetts, but has moved to Lowell. Bryce does animation for TV shows. He works for Nickelodeon but can work from home on his computer. We each have a nice job, a happy life and a nice pay amount for our work. I think it all came out well.
