The Invention Convention
[At Timmy?s house...]
"Let?s see what you?ve created, Timmy," suggested Computie Pie.
"Okay. Well first I have this device that allows the user to remove dust from their home and keep it off. I call it the Dust Vacuum," replied Timmy.
"Interesting. Might be useful around my house. There?s lots of dust in places I can?t even reach," remarked Computie Pie.
"Then there?s the self-warming jacket. It?s made up of an old computer so it?s a bit bulky but when activated and it senses you feeling cold, it?ll warm you right up," explained Timmy.
"I?m sure that?ll be good for the Invention Convention today. What else ya got?" continued Computie Pie.
"The last one I have and it?s a work in progress at the moment is going to be able to sense when you?ve dropped money. Even if you don?t hear it fall, it?ll see it and remind you," stated Timmy.
"I generally don?t carry a huge ton of money with me but I could see uses with that. I guess we can try with the self-warming coat," figured Computie Pie.
"Okay. Now tell me why you?re covered in ink," responded Timmy.
"It?s not ink exactly. Remember that suit I had on when we first met? Well this is the result of using that," explained Computie Pie.
"Why not use it without the suit?" asked Timmy.
"Well you could but you wouldn?t be able to erase it later using your body as it?d be there until the next rainstorm," protested Computie Pie.
"I see. Well I guess we?ll try my self-warming coat in the contest. Speaking of which, it starts soon so we?d better get going," answered Timmy before grabbing the invention.
"Good call," added Computie Pie before she and Timmy leave. [At the convention...]
"Tough competition this year. Some of these are humongous," remarked Timmy.
"It?s not about size, Timmy, it?s about what it does," corrected Computie Pie.
"I hope you?re right," stated Timmy nervously.
"What do you have to show the judges?" asked Eduardo.
"Come see the self-warming coat. A device that senses your body?s temperature and will warm you up," announced Computie Pie.
"I?d love to see it in action," remarked Carol, one of the Invention Convention judges.
"Certainly. Just let me hook you up to it. There we go," agreed Timmy.
"A bit bulky but it seems to be working. I had just gotten out of the shower about 10 minutes ago and now my mane is drying out nicely," remarked Carol.
"Good to know you liked it," smiled Computie Pie.
"That means we have a shot," concluded Timmy.
"Or......maybe not. The judges really seem to like that pony?s invention more. We?ll just have to wait until the winner is decided," noted Computie Pie.
"Win or lose, I?m glad we came," stated Timmy.
"Me too. We?ll have ides to do even better for next time," agreed Computie Pie.
"It?s time to announce the winner of the Invention Convention. First prize goes to.....Computie Pie and Timmy!" declared Eduardo.
"We won? We Won!" exclaimed Computie Pie and Timmy together.
"Congratulations, you two," stated Eduardo before handing them the blue ribbon.
"I knew we could do it," concluded Timmy.
"We did," corrected Computie Pie.
"2nd prize goes to.........Bob and Jasmine for their Jiggletron 2000," continued Eduardo before handing Bob and Jasmine the silver ribbon.
"2nd place is something I can live with," remarked Jasmine.
"Finally, 3rd place goes to.........Kyle and Ms. Sheila for their Heart-to-Heart Ring of Love," finished Eduardo before handing Ms. Sheila and Kyle their bronze ribbon.
"Seems like we?re all inventors, one way or another," noted Computie Pie.
"Absolutely. It?s what I call Pudgy Pony Participation. You all may be different but when you put your minds to it, you can bring out the part of you buried within," assured Eduardo.
"This day has been great and I hope down the road I can become more than friends with Computie Pie," thought Timmy.
