The Weekly Wonderings #119

1. I kid you not when I mention that Youngest and I saw an old goat and a couple of kids yesterday morning at the high school field.

2. And I further kid you not when I note that I state that literally.

5. It's folks -- and goats -- like that who make it difficult for the rest of us to flaunt the law of "NO ANIMALS ALLOWED" on public property.

6. Later that same day, I got my own kid's goat by shoving him down one of the killer slides at Waterworld and saying, just as he and his friend started down on the flimsy tube, "Don't die!"

7. I then turned to the attendant and said, "Wouldn't you hate to have me as a mother?"

8. He smiled politely.

9. What else was he going to do?

10. Go all goat-sh$t and eat my towel?
