Would You Make That Deal? Reply

Heather Tran

Hello, children! Welcome back to another edition of “Would You Make That Deal?” I hope you all are having a magnificent week. In the last edition, many of you voted that you would attend school six days a week to learn all that you need if you could forgo homework. Personally, I would rather get homework and only go to school five days a week. Now, let’s stop rehashing and get on to this week’s deal.

Being a celebrity seems like it would be very fun, with all the benefits that come with it. Who doesn’t want to become famous? So, here’s the deal. You can be the celebrity of your choice for a week, but after you turn back to your own life, you would still have paparazzi following you everywhere you go for the rest of your life and you would get no privacy.

Remember to vote on the poll, and I will see you next week. Have a fantabulous life.
