Now, when you saw the title of this page, you probably were confused. I mean, who would write about the school’s plumbing? That would be SO boring, right? That would be the case if APG had normal plumbing. Well, lucky for you (or unlucky for you if you go down there), the school DOES NOT have normal plumbing. Now, you might be thinking, what do you mean Giannini doesn’t have normal plumbing? What I mean is the result of a terrible disaster that happened over 50 years ago. You must be wondering what exactly happened those many years ago.
It all started when poor little Tommy, a sixth grader, was dared by the eighth graders to go down into the boiler room. He nervously descended the rusty ladder. He watched as the eighth graders’ looming figures slowly shrunk as he climbed down. When he reached the bottom, he jumped down, his feet echoing around the dark room.
He timidly looked around, taking in all the dust and pipes cluttered around the room. He continued to examine the room when he thought he saw a red light flicker. He went forward to take a closer look, but then jumped back quickly.
It wasn’t a light.
It was a pair of red, glowing eyes! He started to feel anxious. He was about to go back upstairs when he spotted something shiny in an air vent near the ceiling. Excited, he quickly climbed up to see what it was. As he started to climb up one of the pipes to reach the vent, he was dragged up the pipe and into forever darkness.
To this day, his rotting corpse continues to make the school smell like your brother’s moldy old gym socks. :D
Now, learn a lesson from poor Tommy and NEVER EVER go down to the boiler room, because you may never come back up.
DUN DUN DUNNNNN!!!

Christmas is a moment many people of all ages enjoy celebrating. There are many holidays songs playing on the radio to bring you into the jolly mood. Many traditional Christmas songs will be playing like, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer. There will be new pop versions of Christmas songs like All I Want for Christmas is You, Last Christmas, and Santa Tell Me. Many people celebrate holidays in the winter, such as Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, and Christmas. There may be many holidays that people celebrate in the winter, but Christmas is the most celebrated of them all. At the end, everyone gets presents and many people are happy during these moments.
A lot of people love being cozy and warm, especially when winter comes around. If you are this person, you should understand how you love being wrapped with warm blankets and seasonal drinks. This is the time when many people shop for their favorite sweaters (don’t forget the ugly sweaters too!), flannels, scarves, and beanies- basically anything that will keep them warm and comfortable.
There are also many seasonal drinks coming out just for winter. Eggnog, mocha, hot chocolate, and more will be on sale for the cold winter. These drinks are very special for winter holidays because most of them keep you warm.
There is also going to be snow in many states. Lots of people may go to the snow to have fun and play with the snow. But stay there when you can, because spring is right around the corner!
