The teacher turned toward the eager student and replied, “Those are the clouds that form thunderstorms.” “Are they really tall?” Alana wanted to know. “Yes!” exclaimed Alex, “Look at the picture! They are huge!” “Wow,” declared Alexa, “We normally don’t see the whole cumulonimbus cloud during a storm, just the bottom part of it that is really dark.” “I know,” said Blain. “There are a lot of things I still want to learn about these types of clouds.”

“Are they really tall?” Alana wanted to know.

“Yes!” exclaimed Alex, “Look at the picture! They are huge!”

“Wow,” declared Alexa, “We normally don’t see the whole cumulonimbus cloud during a storm, just the bottom part of it that is really dark.”

“I know,” said Blain. “There are a lot of things I still want to learn about these types of clouds.”

I walked into the room. Mary was there. She asked, “What are you doing?” I said, “I just came in to see if you wanted to start dinner.” “I already ate before I came home.” I said, “Well, will you help me anyway?” “No.” I asked her, “Why not?” She screamed, “Because I already ate! What’s wrong with you?” “Nothing,” I said. “I’m going to leave,” I said. “Fine,” she said, and went back to looking at the TV. I left the room.
