I was in the front yard fertilizing the flowers. Several young kids (ages 3 – 6) gathered in my front yard and I overheard one of them say, “Let’s scare Ralph.”
They moved a little closer and yelled, “Boo” before running around the corner of the house. I pretended not to hear them. Soon they came back and moved even closer. They yelled boo and ran again. I still pretended not to hear them.
The same scenario played out once more with the kids a little closer. This time when they ran off, I hid behind the corner of the house. When they came back around the corner, I jumped out and scared them. They ran off yelling and laughing when one of them yelled out they should turn me into a zombie. Within seconds I was chasing them around the cul-de-sac using my best zombie impression. I was about to catch the six year old when she stopped and yelled, “Overs.”
I know what ‘overs' are but wanted to see how a six year old explained it. She told me, “When you’re playing and don’t like the way it’s going, you call 'overs' and it starts again.”
I knew there were perks to not acting your age.
