A Minerals Story

My friend Amber and I like to play together after school.  We meet by the big, gold doors out front.  Sometimes our friend Tom Feldspar walks with us.  He and his sister Galena are always getting into trouble at school, but they are really fun friends.  Today we’re all going to go to the Copper Pocket for some new jeans.  I also want to buy a tin box to keep my jewelry in.  The boxes come in all sizes and are painted in pretty colors like gold, silver, blue, red, and green.  Maybe I can also find a fun top to buy that I don’t have to iron.  After that, we’re going to go to the Quartz Café for malt.  I wish every day after school could be like this one!
