Today Cheryl invited me and Susan to come over after lunch and play on her new Slip 'N Slide. Hey! Just like Danny had at his 4th of July party a couple of years ago. Outta site! Susan and I changed into our swimsuits, grabbed some towels, and walked over to Cheryl's house. She was waiting out front to meet us.
It was super hot today, so we couldn't wait to to start sliding! Cheryl's mom hooked it onto the garden hose. Before Susan or I could even blink, Cheryl pulled off her shorts, ran straight for the Slip 'N' Slide yelling "Me first!" I thought she was gonna land on her head as she hit that thing spinning and rolling around!
I was next! I got a good running start, but I felt one foot touch the plastic, and all of a sudden my feet slipped out from under me! Yikes! Ready or not (and I was definitely NOT), here I come!
It wasn't the launch I planned, but it was groovy, anyway. Now it was Susan's turn. She thought she'd try it sitting up, but that didn't work out too well.
We all had a few more turns. We were having so much fun, we almost didn't hear the ice-cream truck coming up the block! Fast as lightning, Cheryl ran to ask her mom for 75 cents, (that's a quarter for each of us), so we could buy some ice-cream. Far out! Was that ever nice of Cheryl and her mom! We sat down on our towels to eat them.
Cheryl had pistachio, I had tutti-fruiti, and Susan had chocolate. Yummy!
We had such a great time! I love anything to do with getting wet on a hot, summer day. Now I was cool on the outside from being wet, and cool on the inside with my ice-cream cone. What a super way to spend a summer's day!
Until next time, future readers,
