What is it about kids and water.. They love love love to jump in it and play in it. So when my nephew made a run for the water puddle, I went in for the zone defense. He kept trying to maneuver around me.
So I blocked the puddle. And he’d move around me anyway.
So then I stood in the puddle and blocked him with my feet. And he’d move around me anyway.
So I sat down on the curb to block him. And he belly flopped and went right under my legs like London Bridge to the puddle.
So I lifted him back over and again he belly flopped and went right under to the puddle.
I was desperate. In that moment, with people already laughing at my predicament, I mustered all my 39 years of knowledge to figure out a solution… and in that moment… I sat down BOOM right in the puddle. All of me. And he just looked at me. And he knew it was over.
This guy won the puddle battle… and I have the battle scars to prove it. Thanks to my daughter for being so willing to snap a picture.
