Our Trip to the Witches of Whim

We went on the bus.  Parents were waiting for us there.  We saw a play about witches  The bad witch wanted to blow up the world.  The good witches didn't want to.  The professor built a machine to blow up the world but it chopped up food.  The lost witch told the other witches not to blow up the world.  So they didn't.  The bad witch took a bath and got to be a good witch.
