Those of you who know me for a while, know I don’t like bodies of water. Water is for drinking, period. It belongs in a small bowl. I don’t like oceans, ponds, lakes, rivers, pools or even puddles. When the ground is damp outside, I don’t go there but I create an indoor puddle.
The peep came to me and said, “Kyla, you need to take something off your bucket list.” I knew I was in for it. “You should go into a large body of water, what’s it gonna do to you? Kill you?”. Now I know I only have a few months left, but the gallows humor was NOT appreciated. I said that if I went into the pool and touched the bottom, would He please not bring up stuff like oceans again. He agreed and said that not only that, I’d get an extra treat every day of my life. We agreed on what that would be.
I gathered the troops and gave Kaci and Kali a list of things to get. They got them-it was a lot of work:
and a lot of patience
But we got it done. “Eureka! I’ve knocked 2 things off my bucket list”. Kaci said, “What was the other, outsmarting the peeps? You do that all the time.”
“No, Kaci. I’ve always wanted to pee in the pool”.
