One day when I was walking by the local post office, I seen a stamp. On it it had a brown head with legs popping out of the top of it. The legs were white with blue and red paint sliding down it like slugs on a slide. I closed my eyes thinking of what it could be. I saw a bright light, opened my eyes and to my amazement I was there standing next to the head with le gs. I looked at the wrinkled stamp and saw me standing there near the post office, exactly where I was when I got 'transported'. I closed my eyes and saw another bright light. As I opened them I look around and I was back, next to the post office. As I looked in the stamp again I saw me standing next to the head with legs.
