Okay, now here’s our story.
One day there was an owl named Oscar.
He was orange and white with olive eyes.
He liked to play with his friends Oliver the ostrich and Ozzie the octopus.
One day, they decided to make an opposite obstacle course at the oval park.
“At each obstacle,” Oscar said, “whatever I do, you do the opposite!”
“I think I’ll observe and eat this orange over here,” said Ozzie.
So they got to the first obstacle, and Oscar the owl said, “Okay, I go UP!”
Oliver the ostrich said, “I go . . . hmm, the opposite of up is . . . DOWN.”
And they passed the first obstacle.
When they got to the next obstacle, Oscar the owl went OVER, and since Oliver the Ostrich had to do the opposite, he went UNDER.
Finally, they came to the last obstacle, and Oscar said, “I’m going to go slooooooow,” and he was off.
But, oh no! Oliver didn’t hear him, so he couldn’t figure out the right opposite. Oops!
Ozzie the octopus saw that Oliver was stuck. “Oscar the owl is going SLOOOOW!”
“PHEW! Thanks!” said Oliver. “The opposite of slow is . . . FAST, and off he went.”
He caught up to Oscar just as he was crossing the finish line.
“We finished our opposite obstacle course!”
Ozzie came oooooozing over and passed out oranges for everyone.
“I loved our opposite obstacle course, but it’s almost nighttime, so I’m getting sleepy,” Oliver said.
“I’m not. Owls don’t sleep at night—we sleep during the day.”
“Hey . . . NIGHT, DAY—another opposite!”
