Editor’s Note: Amelia had an assignment to write an opinion piece about whether she would rather have a pool or trampoline at her house. She was struggling to find the motivation to do it (who can blame her…talk about a Sophie’s choice), so I told her that I could post her essay on blog. Below is what she had to say on the topic, faithfully transcribed from the original handwritten edition.

Do you like pool’s? I like pool’s. In my opinion I wood rathr have a pool. I want a pool because I like to swim and to play in water. Wood you want a pool?
