So you walk in the shop, and say to the secretary, “I’d like an afro, please!” But she says, “Sorry were all out.” You say “SAY WHAT!?!“ “Sorry,” She says. “ Well I guess you could have the special treatment,” she says suspiciously. “What’s that?” you say. “Ah you’ll find out,” she says. “Ok,” you say nervously. You sit in the chair, waiting for the (busy) hair stylist. Finally, he comes and says, “you’re going to look fabulous!!” He gets started and it seems like he’s taking a long, long, time, but he is finished. …….” I’M BALD!!!!” You yell. “W-what do you mean?” he says. “She said it was the special treatment!!” you yell. “I’m sorry but there’s nothing else I can do,” he says. “NEVER MIND!!” you cried. As you storm out (with your hands over your head ) you pass a wig store. You race in there and yell, “GIVE ME THE BEST AFRO YOU’VE GOT!!” You are looking at the wigs, when you spot a purple sparkly AFRO!!!

You are taking pictures and you see something in the background so you try to zoom in and focus on it. You still can not see what it is. So you ask other people to take a look and they don’t really know what it is but they see something there. So you still see something and it kind of looks like it is coming closer so you back up and try to use your other camera. So you zoom in again and focus it. You finally see something and drop your camera in the water. You are so amazed the only thing you know is it was kind of large. You put your other camera away and by now there is a whole crowd of people but none are sure what it really is. It starts to get clearer, but it is still blurry so you try to zoom in one more time. Everyone is out but you keep on looking. If you see an iceberg click here If you see another boat click here

You pull on the Time Machine door. It sticks. “COME ON!!” you yell. As if on cue, the door pops open, and you quickly jump in, pulling the door shut behind you. The time machine is different than it was before. You choose a knob at random, and twist it clockwise until it clicks. The screen lights up and now shows a GIGANTIC wall. You decide you will come back to that picture. You take three deep breaths to calm yourself, sitting down in the sky blue seat. A cool breeze blows through your hair and across your face. Now you choose a button that looks as if it has water in it. You press it and a bottle of water pops out of a slot in the door. You take a drink. Suddenly, a silver, glittering lever catches your eye. The top shows a wall much like the one on the screen. The bottom shows dark skinned people, working in a field. You sip some more water, thinking… Above and below the lever there are two glowing red buttons. You press both of them. The screen splits and shows the two pictures in a bigger view. The faces of the people in both pictures are wet with sweat and tired looking. You reach out and touch the picture you want, closing your eyes as your finger reaches the button…. Floating, Flying Through Time. Everything is crazy, you see stars. If you choose the picture of the wall, click here If you choose the picture of the people working, click here.

As you sit in the time machine you look out the window. Everything is swirling as if in a tornado. Suddenly, everything stops. As you get out you notice that you are not in a museum, you are at a busy city. Everyone around you is wearing styles you’ve never seen before. One girl is wearing shoes that make her look about 6 in. taller. Another person is wearing pants that get wider towards the bottom, but one thing in common is that most stuff is floral. Then it hits you; if floral is popular then you must be in the 1970’s! As you are lost in thought, you hear a person yelling. “Hey hey” they shout out as you ignore it. Again you hear the obnoxious noise when you realize that whoever is talking must be talking to you. “50% off hair styling at my barber shop” he says, “But if you get an afro it’ll be free!” You look at your hair in a mirror. You do need a new style…so you start deciding what you want. If you get an afro click here If you don’t get an afro click here
