Summer Movie Spectacular, Part 1
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille," said Gabe in a high, falsetto voice, batting his eye lashes and tucking his hands under his chin.
 
2     "Gabe!" Eric shouted. Then he started to laugh. "We'll never get this going if you can't stop being so silly."
 
3     Eric sighed dramatically, and he carefully attached his new digital video camera to the tripod. The camera was so small that it looked a little bit silly on the heavy tripod, but he wanted to be sure his panning shot was steady.
 
4     "Okay Gabe, Miguel, do you know what we're doing?"
 
5     Both boys nodded.
 
6     "You sure are lucky," said Miguel. "There is no way my dad would get me a new camera and a computer program to edit video on."
 
7     "I guess he was feeling guilty for having to be away for a month," said Eric. "But I don't mind too much. Grandma's pretty cool. She's staying in the guest room. We're having a good time together."
 
8     "Whatever the reason he got it for you, you're still lucky, man," said Gabe. "I can't imagine my grandma being cool."
 
9     "Maybe you just haven't seen her in the right circumstance," said Eric. "She might surprise you."
