The Most Important Day of My Life
The most important day of my life had just happened recently. It all
started out when some friends and I were bored. We wanted to do something that
was fun and cool which also happened to be very bad. We decided we were going
to make a big firecracker.
The first thing we did was to go to a hardware store. We went there and
looked around for a long time, till we decided what we wanted to use in the
firecracker. I watched a TV show the night before about bombs on PBS (Public
Broadcast System). So when I told my friends what I watched we decided to make
a pipe-bomb. We bought the pipe and went back to my house.
Once we got back to my house we started assembling the bomb. I remember
watching how to make it off PBS. So we first drilled a hole on one end of the
cap so that the fuse could fit through it. Then we began to fill the pipe with
black powder. Once it got half full we stuck the fuse in, and began to fill it
up with more black powder. Once it was almost full we stopped, and we filled
the rest up with hot glue. We did not know if the glue would ignite it or not
so we tested it out on a small sample of black powder. The glue did not ignite
the black powder, so we filled up the pipe with hot glue. We then screwed the
steal cap back on the pipe with the fuse sticking out. We were done with making
Last we decided what did we want to do with it now that it was done.
All of us were in a destructive mood at the time. So we ended up going out in
the middle of the woods where no one lived for 10 miles. We found these bed
mattresses that someone threw away. So we stuck the bomb in between there and
lit it and took off in a car. We were about 1 mile away, and we stopped got out
of the car. All of us were sitting there wondering if it would go off or not.
It was about 2 minutes and nothing happened. Then out of no where when we
thought it messed something up it exploded. You saw the huge explosion first
then heard it. We all were amazed on how big of a smoke cloud it made and how
loud it was. Everyone was scared, and we decided to leave in case someone saw
it. Later on that day about 3 hours later we went back to see what the
explosion did to the mattresses. It put a hole through both of the mattresses
and a 3 foot crater in the ground. Everyone was laughing and looking at each
other saying "That was cool." Nobody ever was caught for that or got in any
That was the most important day of my life because it was
the most fun I ever had in my life. It also showed me what you can do if you
put your mind to it.
