Day 192: Quick! Somebody turn on the sprinklers!!!

SprinklerRemember that post a couple of days or so when I talked about how hot it was? Today it’s ten degrees hotter. It reminds me of a time when Al was a preschooler and Nat was a young toddler, and we were invited to lunch with one of my friends at the local university campus, where she worked. It was a warm Summer day, and we had a nice visit followed by a stroll around the campus. School was between sessions, so the campus was pretty quiet. As we were passing by, one of the fountains came on and I told my well dressed, supposedly trained children to walk around it. Nat was the youngest at the time and was not having that. He ran full speed into the fountain. He completely wet his clothes, shoes and hair in the fountain. Al figured that if his brother was completely wet, what did he have to lose? It took a few minutes for me to close my mouth, but I was shaking my head the entire time. Since then I have repeatedly learned that all bets are off when the weather is hot and flowing water is nearby (as evidenced by the times I have had to escort my kids out of the front yard sprinkers that were there to water the grass, not them). As hot as it is today, I could go for a sprinkler run myself. 🙂
