When You’ve Gotta Go

As Laura and I rounded a corner in my neighborhood while on an evening walk with Indie, we heard a bit of a commotion coming from a driveway a few houses up. The cause of the chatter was a gang of neighborhood kids engaged in a rowdy game of four-square.

Amidst the playful hollers and howls, we heard one young lad of about four yell his plea, “Time out! Time out! Hold on! I really have to peeeeee.

The game stopped as their red and blue ball bounced into the lawn.

The boy hurried towards to the house, but just as he neared the front door he ran past it and made straight for the bushes. Facing the house he dropped his shorts to his ankles and provided the summer-dried shrubbery with a much needed sprinkle.
