It was one sunny summer day. My dad, brothers, and I were getting to go fishing.
My dad was getting the fishing poles ready while Dan, Rob,(my brothers)and I were going to get worms to use for bait.
We went into the garden behind our house to look for them. Worms were always the best bait to use when you go fishing. The fake bait never works.
We were looking for the worms early in the morning because that is the best time to look for them.
Rob and Dan had already got a lot of worms to use for their fishing poles but I just couldn't find any. Maybe it was because we were all looking on different parts of the garden.
But then I realized something. There were 5 robins looking for worms about 2 yards away from me. Then I knew why I wasn't finding any worms.
I had about ten worms in my can. Not enough if you fish like me. I am always losing my worm!
I wanted to get more worms so I decided to go shoo the robins away so I could get more.
I got up and went over. I waved my hands at the and said "Shoo, shoo! Get away!". I thought it worked because the robins flew away but then I realized that two were coming back. I was confused.
They flew down and landed on the edge of the can. I was scared then. All of the sudden they started sticking their beaks in and pulling out worms.
I was so surprised and confused that I didn't do anything for a moment. Then I realized they were still there and started running around until they flew away.
And guess what? They took all of my worms except two! I walked back to my digging place.
Rob and Dan were laughing at me. I bet I did look funny running around like a mad woman. "Back to digging" I said as Rob and Dan got up to get their poles.
Next time I think I will pass when they ask me to go fishing.
