No greater fear

Journal, Worst day ever

School was a little odd today. We’ve had some construction going on in the alley the past couple of days which has been super-interesting to watch. I now know what is under a manhole cover in the street! The workers dug down to the sewer pipe and then built a little concrete room around it. It’s been wonderfully fun.

The workers were both charmed and a little annoyed with us.

Not all was sunshine and manholes, though. A little girl threw up on my comfy chair so much that her stomach needs to write me a check for a new chair. *jibblie*

No photo. You are welcome.

Things got really bad on the playground, though. Some boys were running around and screaming:

Lead boy: Run! There’s a T-Rex after us!
Other boys: Ahhhhh!!!!
Lead boy: Run! A girl wants to marry us!!
Other boys: AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!

Both sinister figures were imaginary.  No one wants to marry those yucky boys.

    The manhole picture looks like a space capsule. Too bad the boys couldn’t play in it. That would have been awesome! …except for the sewage.

    I think your dragon needs more beefier arms.

    And she’s such a nice looking girl, too. Oh, wait, is she the one who threw up?

    HA! I laughed out loud at the boys’ cadences! They have the making of a fine Army platoon.

    And I never realized that boys associated females with dragons at such a young age!
