Once, there was an iguana with a talent so specialhe wanted to practice to get into the GuinnessBook of World Records. His talent- catching andeating 146 bugs in 30 seconds.
Then one day a lizard found him and showed theiguana how he had the same talent but he couldeat 183 bugs. That made the iguana sad, but heknew the only thing he could do was practice.
The competition was 45 minutes away so if hewanted to make it, he could only practice onemore time! So he opened up his cabinet, and inless then 10 seconds, 200 bugs were swarminghis house... just how he liked it.
1,2,3... 47,48,49... 82,83,84... 102,103,104...143,144,145- “BING!” went the timer. Iguana hadalways hated his timer, he thought it always wenta second faster than it was supposed to.
Did he beat his record? He had but he had onlyeaten 168 bugs, and that was not enough to beatthe lizard. Well there was no time left to spare asthe iguana went down town to try to get into thebook of world records.
The lizard went first and ate 176 bugs and now itwas iguanas turn. He ate as much as he could, asfast as he could. Before he knew it the time wasup. Had he beaten the record?
Yes! He had done it! He had made it into thebook of world records! It was by far the happiestday of the iguana’s life.His getting into hisfavorite book showed him that if you work hard,it will pay off.
