Sometime ago in a parallel universe a group of Romans were talking.
Maximo: I am bored, what can we do?
Cesar: We can go to see the gladiators.
Augusto: I like going to the Coliseum.
Marco: No Augusto, I am sick of watching that slaves fighting each other.
Cesar: Today it would be Christians versus lions!
Maximo: That is not interesting we already know who would be the winner.
(Musical number: Jesus Christ Super Star soundtrack)
Octavio: We should see what is happening in other worlds.
Augusto: Yes, Octavio is right; we should travel with the galactic bridge to other planets.
Marco: Let’s step in and see where it takes us.
They used the bridge and arrive to the planet of the hockey.
Cesar: What is this place?
Octavio: All these people are crazy!
Maximo: What is that game that they are playing?
Augusto: I don’t know, we should go somewhere else.
They traveled in the bridge again and this time they arrived to the planet of the Greeks
Aquiles: Welcome to planet Greece.
(Musical number: Zorba dance)
Augusto: We should conquer this place after all we are warriors
Marco: Not only warriors, we are the best of the best in the war.
Cesar: Yes, our people had conquered many other civilizations.
Octavio: We should destroy this civilization.
Nestor: What?! No! You can’t destroy us!
Augusto: And why not?
Aquiles: Because we have awesome theater writers like Sophocles that have invented tragedies and comedies, you would really enjoy watching them.
Ulises: Yes, we made the best sculptures, and we also paint pottery.
Nestor: And you copy all from us.
Cesar: You are lying.
Ulises: NO! he is telling the truth, you have our same gods, and your sculptures are exactly the same we did.
Laertes: And we are so intelligent, we also developed philosophy, medicine, democracy…
Marco: Yes but all that intelligence won’t help you to stop us of conquering you.
Nestor: He is probably right, we will need some help. Laertes, go for the Etruscans.
(Musical number: Etruscan dance)
Octavio: Who are you?
Casia: We are Etruscan women; in our culture women are as important as men.
Cesar: What?! Are the men in your culture insane?
Cecilia: Our men are more intelligent and they know they can’t do anything without us.
Marco: And why are you here?
Hersilia: Our ancestors the Villanovans trade their products with the Greeks and the Phoenicians.
Cecilia: Our ancestors began doing things the way the Greeks and the Phoenicians did them.
Tita: When they change their traditions they started to be called Etruscans.
Semia: Some of our people helped building planet Rome so we are your ancestors.
Aquiles: That is why we called them.
Nestor: Yes to help us making you understand that we are all connected.
Ulises: And you can’t destroy us because you will be destroying part of you.
Maximo: OK you convinced us, we will go.
Marco: Really!! We are going to surrender like that?
Maximo: Of course not
Augusto: So why did you say that?
Maximo: Because is a trap. Follow me.
The romans are the Etruscans are  talking
Tita: We use painting and dance in our religious rituals.
Hersilia: We love to dance.
Aquiles: What about sculpture? Do you do that too?
Semia: Our people works the bronze very good, they do human figures and other things with it.
Casia: The romans are back.
Laertes: What are you doing here?
Octavio: We came back to give you a present.
Semia: I don’t trust you.
Octavio: It is understandable, but please accept our gift as a sign of peace.
Hersilia: Everybody deserves another opportunity.
Tita: Yes don’t be so rancorous.
Aquiles: I think Semia is right to be suspicious.
Ulises: Yes if you think we are going to fall in your trap you don’t know us.
Laertes: It only proves that our culture has influenced you.
Aquiles: The trick that you are trying to use was invented by one of our men.
Laertes: Yes, it was Homer, he wrote it in the Iliad.
Nestor: Now you should surrender.
Casia: You have no other option we have you surrounded.
Cecilia: Understand that you have to respect all the cultures.
Ulises: At the end we all have something in common.
Tita: No matter if we have differences we all deserve the same respect.
Casia: And we all can be friends.
Cecilia: You have to commit to respect others.
Hersilia: And to give back the territories you had conquered.
Romans: Yes, we agree.
Casia: In that case you are free.
Laertes: Go home and remember your promise.
Semia: Let’s do a party to celebrate!

Saul: But we are not all about war, fights and deaths.
Julio: No, we also constructed aqueducts to carry water from long distances. 


  1. Hello! It's Becca and Darshan from Ms. Briske's Grade 6 Class! We loved reading your story, A Crazy Planet World Story because it had a very important life lesson about respecting people, even those who are different from you. With us being Canadian, we especially liked the part when they walk into the world of hockey. We thought it was quite amusing! We also liked how they all celebrated at the end! We do have a suggestion: you might want to consider making some of the lines a little bit longer and more complex as a lot of them are quite short and simple, although there are many lines! Aside of our one suggestion your story was extremely interesting and was a great creation. There were many characters and they were all very creatively formed. We really liked all of there unique names. We also learned a lot about Romans, Greeks and Etruscans! Out of curiousity we were wondering if your wonderful story was fictional or non fictional?
    Yours Truly, Becca and Darshan

  3. Hello! It's Conner and Bianca from Ms. Briske's grade 6 class. We recently read "A Crazy Planet World Story" and we both loved it! It was sort of 'flattering' because you included Hockey in your story. It was original and there was great vocabulary in your paragraphs! The story was very, very interesting and the characters had amazing lines! We both learned a lot about different cultures! (Romans, Etruscans, Greeks) We have 3 questions for all of you: 1) Did you research about this? 2) Is it an actual event that happened? 3) Do you know what year this event took place? Thank-you and bye!
