Children are genius: Overheard at the pool…

July 13, 2007

Our weather has turned lovely, cool in the shade a tad windy. Sky blue and full of hot sun. Perfection, really. At the pool yesterday I heard one particular clan of people talking to one another. Or rather the spawn were shouting at the Mama and said,

Boy of about 10-12 is shivering and blue standing wet from the pool. He asks weakly, “Mom, where is my towel?” Mama points to long, terry cloth object directly 4 inches from him on the fence. Boy grabs it and proclaims, “Mom, I am still too cold!” Boy pouts and shuffles his feet waiting for guidance from his Mama.

Mama says sensibly, “Go stand in the sun.” Boy looks at her for a minute and says bewildered, “Where is the sun?”

Mama shakes her head to the background chuckling and says, “See that bright spot in the sky? Don’t look directly at it, just stand under it!”
