The Great Pantry Escape
Somewhere in California there live a sweet potato named Cecil. He is large, hardheaded and always wanted to be an army commander. One day in the pantry he rallied together three other foods. Maria is a smart green pear that wants to go to college someday, Christmas, the bundle of twenty-one grapes, is helpful to everyone, and Laptop is the clumsy bag of Dewritos (combination of Mountain Dew and Doritos); this is where their story began,in the pantry trying to escape.
"Hmmm? How should we get out of the pantry so they don't cook us up?" Cecil questioned.
"Well boys, I have already devised a plan." So she gathers up the licorice and makes a giant slingshot with the rubber band that keeps Laptop's innards from getting stale.
"Who wants to use it first?" asks Maria.
"Me! Me!" exclaims the already stale bag of Dewritos.
Laptop grabs the makeshift slingshot and attempts to test it with one of his chips. The sharp, hard, and stale chip slices right through the already worn down rubber band. The slingshot is now broken.
"I have a better idea," shrieks Christmas. The bundle of grapes splits into individual pieces and forms a tightrope all the way to the doorknob. "Walk on us as a tightrope, Cecil," commanded the grapes.
Cecil walks up the thin strand of grapes and opens the heavy pantry door. "Now, let's get out of this kitchen!"
The four foods rush out of the pantry and into the kitchen. They walk along the long wooden floor tiptoeing as to not be heard by the feeders.
The old wooden door opens.
"Quick! Hide behind the microwave on the counter!" Cecil shouts.
The group rushes up to the counter and jumps behind the microwave.
"They'll find us here!" whispers Maria.
"Shh!" snaps the others.
"What's that behind the microwave?" The voice of a feeder echoes.
The feeder walks over and screams a terrible scream. The gargantuan being runs to get a broom and runs strait for the terrified foods looking as though it was going to swing the broom. The friends close their eyes and hold hands.
"If we die I want you to know that I ate Sam!" remarks Laptop. A rush of air swipes pass their faces and as they open their eyes they are shocked to see the feeder running out of the kitchen after a mouse leaving the door open.
"We're safe." Cecil breaths a sigh of relief.
"You ate Sam the gummy bear?!" Roars Christmas.
"He tasted so good!" Laptop argues.
"No more time to argue. Let's move." Cecil intervenes. The team runs out of the kitchen and moves on the their goal...the door. It will be long and hard as they maneuver through the living room but they are confident they will make it.
"This is the final room the living room get through here are we're golden." Cecil states. The rest of the team agrees.
"How do we get over the coffee table Maria?" Cecil asks.
"If Christmas forms a rope we could all climb up." Maria answers.
"On it." Christmas then forms a long rope and the rest climb up. The group collects themselves at the top.
"What is that?" The whole group coincidently says in unison. It was a dog. A big mean dog with sharp teeth staring right at them.
"What do we do?! What do we do?!" Christmas says as he paces in circles.
"The only way is if someone distracts it. And the only way to do that is if... Someone dies." Maria thinks proposes.
"I'll do it" bravely suggest Laptop. Without thinking he yells "Run!" And jumps off the side of the table. The fierce animal immediately jumps on the vulnerable bag of Dewritos and eats up the yummy goodness.
They made it to the door.
"He's dead! I can't believe he's dead!" Maria balls.
"I'm a fruit so I have no human emotions." the grapes monotonously speaks. Cecil then climbs up the large door.
"It's locked." Cecil says in despair as he climbs down the large door. The door is locked.
"It's over." Cecil adds.
"Look! Look!" Christmas cries with joy. It was Laptop rising in on the dog!
"Get on!" he yells while reaching his hand out. "
We're saved!" Maria burst out in tears as she climbs up the seemingly giant beast. The group of friends all ride out the dog door on the humongous animal to live a long and full life for snacks so like 2 weeks.
Where Are They Now?
Cecil is the head security officer for Michelle Obama (mostly undercover in pictures like these ones)
Laptop was eaten by a hobo fiver minutes after escaping.
