“That was a wise decision,” said Farmer Fred. “It is a scorcher out there today.”

“It is the hottest day so far,” said Christopher.

“I think I am going to go to the lake today. said Farmer Fred. “You are welcome to join me if you want.”

“I would love to,” said Christopher. “It has to be cooler there.”

“It will be,” said Farmer Fred. “Especially in the water.”

“Are you going swimming?” asked Christopher.

“I am,” said Farmer Fred. “You should too.”

“Maybe,” said Christopher. “I feel adventurous today.”

Farmer Fred and Christopher went to the lake. Meanwhile, the rest of the band members were quite bored. They were so used to practising their music that it was really hard for them to think about doing anything else.

“It does,” said Christopher. “I think we need to take them to the lake.”
“I agree,” said Farmer Fred. “Let’s go now.”
Cameron and Calvin jumped right into the lake once they got there. They felt so much cooler.
“So,” said Christopher. “Next time I tell you to cool down on a hot day, we are going to come straight here to the lake. That way I know you will all listen.”
“Good idea,” said Cameron.

“I can’t afford to have you become boiled vegetables,” said Christopher. “I need you all to be healthy.”
