It was incredibly hot today and my air conditioner broke down. So when the cool breeze finally decided to come along as the sun was going down I decided to do some work in the garden.
After a while I got a surprise visit. One of these visitors was the most amazing little lady. She was trying to escape the long days heat as well. So we sat around for a little while enjoying a nice "purple flavoured" icy treat.
When we were finished I thought it would be a good time to give the garden a little drink. It's always nice as the mist floats back toward you with the breeze. After I had started watering some of the trees, and we watched some birds playing in the cool mist, I was asked by this little lady if I would mind some help. I was asked in the most innocent and polite way you could imagine. I couldn't say no, but as I found out, this was all a ruse.
I was stupid enough to hand the hose to a six year old. Almost immediately it was turned on me, and I was soaked within seconds. I wasn't really wearing clothes that are, fun, to get wet in. I had a blast.
This angelic, deceiving, little lady gave me a glimpse of what it was to be a kid again. Even though it was only for a few minutes as we continued our little water fight.
As we sat and ate our second icy treat, pink flavour this time. I realized, this was an amazing afternoon and I should aways try and remember to make the most of every day. The second thing I realized; this was just a normal afternoon for the little lady.
