What Goes Around. . .
I want warm weather too but I refused to turn my sprinklers on that early. A few days ago, the front lawn needed some water so I decided to do it the “old fashion” way. I drug out the hose and attached a sprinkler.
Before long, a little four-year-old neighbor girl came running over yelling, “Hi Ralph! Is that a new sprinkler? I’ve never seen one like that before!”
I generally try not to lie to four year olds. They’re old enough to handle the truth. I told her I’ve had that sprinkler for a long time (about fifteen years).
Then she did just what you would expect, she stuck her hand in the stream of water . . . and then her foot. You could tell from the glimmer in her eye she wanted to run through it. Fearing the wrath of her mother, I thought this would be a good time to send her home.
