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!
