Mama Shark

I took the kids swimming yesterday. They had been begging to go ever since they saw that the pool had opened .  They hopped in while I parked myself at the edge of the pool.

As I looked around, I noticed that a garden hose was pouring water into the pool.  Another kid noticed, too.  He got a funny look in his eye, and I knew exactly what he was going to do.  He took that hose and aimed the freezing cold water right at me.  I stared at him, not moving an inch.

"Mrs. Ellis, aren't you going to yell or scream?" the kid asked. 

I gave him one of my wicked smiles.  "I don't yell at little kids.  I eat them!"

And then I charged.  You should've seen that kid try to swim away from me!  Ha!  Lesson learned:  Never mess with a Mama Shark!

  1. What next? I hope at least the day was warm so the cold water dried fast.

  2. I, too, have threatened to eat children who bother me, but I wasn't playing Mama Shark. I said in my best wicked witch voice, I cook little children and eat them for breakfast.

    Love,

  10. Sometimes kids can be very transparent with their motives. I'm glad you fought back!
