Slam Dunk

Here is Peter, full of pride and ready to GO SWIM! Seconds later, he goes down the steps and somehow manages to completely dunk himself under water. The instructor rushed over and yanked him out coughing, spitting and crying. That was the beginning of the end of his swimming career.

After the pool trauma, Peter felt that he deserved a milkshake at Burger King. It was more like a demand, so who was I to resist?

We got to Burger King and I felt like the freak bus must have just pulled up before we got there. The place was full of some pretty weird weirdos and it wasn't only the staff.

Angie was still sick, so I had taken off of work to help take care of the ankle-biters. After Burger King, I picked up David and we all went to the zoo.

When we were by the lion cages, one lion started roaring loudly over and over. David asked me why and I told them it was probably just hungry. For the rest of the day, David went around telling anyone who would listen 'The lions are hungry'. Without the the background context, though, they probably thought he was James Bond, Jr. passing some secret cryptic message. The lions are hungry. And mama is wearing a red shoe.

As we passed the camels, Peter broke into a shouting rendition of a new song he has recently learned. 'SALLY THE CAMEL HAS...TWO HUMPS! SALLY THE CAMEL HAS...TWO HUMPS!!' I would really like to find the person that taught him that song so that I can personally thank him or her. If you are reading, please meet me in the dark alley behind the train station tomorrow night. Come alone.
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I go'ed with you to the pool.
David: When I lay with my mama.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I go'ed under water.
David: When I laid owa fall down.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go with you to the swimming pool.
David: I play aminals and I have cassette.
