THE DREAM OF THE GOBLIN AND THE WHALE
My first quarter at Miami Ad School, I wrote and narrated a short children's story.

"The Dream of the Goblin in the Whale"
There once was a whale
Bigger than all the trees
Bigger than buildings
Higher than the eye could see
The whale was hungry
And boy did he eat
Until one day
He ate a goblin
And fell deep into sleep.
The goblin wreaked havoc
Inside of the belly of the whale.
He danced and made fires
Even eating part of the whale’s tail.
How badly the whale wished
As his nightmares never ended,
That he had just kept his mouth shut
And let the goblin go unoffended.
One day a boy on the beach
Found a huge whale asleep.
The boy tapped on the whale’s mouth
To see if the whale could speak.
The boy heard voice inside the whale
Not of a man at all.
Saying, “Go away or you will hate the day you made your call!”
The boy was not afraid,
But rather curious.
So he wriggled his way into the whale,
To see if the voice was serious.
Inside the whale,
The boy saw huge walls of blue.
But also felt wave of sadness,
And wondered what he could do.
Inside the boy saw a light,
Burning so bright.
The light came from around the corner,
So the boy followed and turned right.
There at the end was in fact the most ugly thing,
The boy had ever seen.
A face made of yellow silly putty,
With two noses full of green.
The goblin looked at the boy,
And then howled at the sky.
The boy was unafraid,
and had looked the goblin in the eyes.
“My eyes! My eyes!” The goblin cried,
As his face started to melt.
His insides burned alive,
As pain was all he felt.
The boy kept looking,
Until the goblin was pudding.
And that’s when the whale threw up,
And the boy woke up.
