It’s been a while, but I had to share this one!
We have all had a very hot summer, no different here on the East Coast. We buy cases of water just to keep the kids hydrated while out and about. PopPop went out and picked up two cases. So, Hara and Spike are hanging with their PopPop on this scorching, early afternoon. The kids, like always begged PopPop for some tasks to do, and he love to give the kids chores and small projects. I love it because it keeps them busy.
Well, I can hear them working hard, and then PopPop comes in laughing and says, “I will pay you if you don’t laugh,” as he guides me out on the deck.
“I told them to clean out the cooler with the hose and then put the water in the cooler.” My dad giggles, “I guess I should have been specific, huh?”
I try to hold in my chuckle.
“We did good didn’t we?” Hara smiles.
“We’re almost done,” Spike pours the last drop of water from a water bottle, into the cooler.
I smile and agree, “You guys sure did!” I turn to PopPop and say, “yep you gotta be specific with kids, you gave the direction and they did it to the tee. ‘Put the water in the cooler, right?’
