The Little Robot That Could

A short story for today because nothing else really got done...
Mike did print more parts, Trent worked on some CAD drawings, then Jeremiah and Asher helped Gary in the machine shop. Of course we (the Media Team Pirates) Anna, Ashley, Wil and I are bringing you this story tonight.

There once was a little robot who lived in robot land.
His name was Rob, and all the other robots made fun of him because he was so small.
All he ever wanted to do was make bricks.
Regular bricks were not good enough for Rob, he wanted to make rainbow bricks!!!
Rob decided one day that he would make a rainbow brick, even if the other robots said he was to small.
So he drank some rainbow oil (because he's a robot and doesn't drink milk).
After he drank the oil he grew bigger, then he tried to make a rainbow brick.
When he tried to make the brick, he ended up making a cake instead!
Rob looked at the rainbow cake and said "what? I wanted to make a rainbow brick!"
Just then the programmer robot came in and and said "when I programmed you, I programmed you to make cakes, not bricks."
Rob looked down and said "but I really wanted to make bricks, not cake. Bricks are much better because I can't eat the cake!"
The programmer said  "but Rob, you can't eat bricks either..."
Rob realized he was silly for thinking this, then he asked "why couldn't I have been programmed to make bricks instead of cake?"
The programming robot looked at him and said "we have hundreds of robots that make bricks, even the rainbow ones, but we didn't have any robots that could make cakes!"
Then Rob realized he was special, because he was the only robot that could make cakes.

I hope you have enjoyed this short story! Hopefully we will have more team members here tomorrow so that we can make more progress on our robot. Then I will have more to blog about. :)
