Fondling the Idea
While I was sitting, I pulled aside the curtain and looked out the bathroom window that faced the lake. But no one was on the beach anymore. Instead, the entire family was engaged in a water fight! A group was on the paddle boat pretending to be pirates, and another group was on floating mattresses. There were water guns, and water buckets, and everyone was laughing and having a fantastic time. Even my mom was in the water, throwing her head back in laughter.
By the time I raced back down to the lake, the water fight had ended as quickly as it had begun. I burst into tears, while the adults lied and told me, "It really wasn't fun at all anyways."
To this day, I cannot refuse an invitation to go out. Because if I do, a giant water fight might erupt, and I'll miss out.
So after two straight days of work on very little sleep in a row, I headed over to Adam and Alice's for 80s Prom Night.
