“Mother, Father, I would like to become a foreign exchange student.” said Artemis. Of course he would never say this unless he was under the Mesmer which he was. Holly had gotten annoyed with him getting in her hair all the time so she decided it was time for him to take a trip.
“Fantastic! we’ll sign you up today!” cried his mother she was always wanting him to make friends. So she hopped to the computer right away to sign him up. The next day he was signed up to go to Wisconsin to live with some Sarah girl who happened to live on a farm.) When he landed in Wisconsin he snapped out of the Mesmer. When he realized what had happened he shouted to the sky “Curse you Holly Short and your evil ways!” This would have satisfied him but then he remembered where he was and that she probably couldn’t hear him he so instead felt stupid.
“looks like we got another loony!” Sara whispered to her dad
“Ah well the farm will toughen him up.”
Artemis walked of to them introduced himself a little too grandly that Sara fell over laughing. “Oh my gosh!” she giggled ” You talk so funny and the way you talk sound like pig crap dripping in perfume!!!!” Artemis was very offended and decided not to talk all the way to the house. However Sara just kept Jabbering on about how much fun he would have milking the cows.
“Yeah right like I’m getting any where near those living steaks!” thought Artemis.
It seemed as though Sarah could read his thoughts and said “Oh and you will work that was part of the deal.” Artemis could have groaned but he decided to keep to himself. If his hosts thought that he was eager to be here maybe they would let him do something other than work. They parked the car in a rickety old barn and got out. Then Sarah showed him to the guest room. It smelled like well fresh, and it was a off-white color. Unfortunately it was a twin size bed and the bed spread had loony tunes on it with a pink pillow.
