Conversation between the 12 year old mouth and me.
Mom, I am SOOOOOOO hot. Can I PLEASE jump in our pond.
No, you'll scare the fish. How about going to the neighborhood pool?
I can't find the key to the gate.
Mrs. Friendly Neighbor from 5 houses up called and said you can go swim with them.
Nah, I don't feel like walking down there.
How about the City pool?
None of my friends are there.
Sorry, I don't have any other options.
Hey, I have an idea.....
Gee, I'm so proud. Mom of a genius.
[Edited: I believe the temperature hit 94 degrees today. And don't even ask about the humidity. The heat index topped at 99 degrees.]
