“At first it looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it!” I was taken back in time after reading this statement. I was a youngster and loved to play marbles with my friends. Dad always told me to be especially careful playing marbles but I was much too young to understand why.
One day, I was playing marbles with my friend. My favorite marble was called, “God’s eye”. I whipped it out and hit the marbles and “POW,” they exploded, sending the marbles all over the place. Immediately I knew something major had changed. Dad told me later that I had just caused the “Big Bang” and created a new universe. Marbles became planets, moons and a sun. I was afraid I had done something terribly wrong and would be in trouble. But, my dad had my back and turned it into something wonderful.
Now I know that “God’s eye” looked like an ordinary marble, but it was far from it. (150)
