I took my kids to the pool to cool off from the summer heat. My daughter found one of her friends and promptly began goofing around.
"Mom, check this out!" She held out her arms and did a zombie walk into the pool.
I laughed. "Nice."
Her friend decided to do something outrageous, too. "Mrs. Ellis, watch this!" She ran backwards into the pool.
"Be careful," I said. "I don't want you to get hurt!"
The girls continued their little game. Here's what they came up with:
1. Running cannonball: Run as fast as you can and do a cannonball jump, creating the largest splash possible.
2. Miss America walk: Smile pretty and wave as you daintily step into the water.
3. Skip: No explanation necessary.
4. Cartwheel: Ditto. Just don't hit your head.
5. Tap dance: Do a series of fallaps until you're in (be careful not to stub your toes).
6. Do the Chicken Dance and give a big BRAWK when you hit the water.
7. Do it Gangnam Style.
So there you go, ladies and gentlemen. If you're ever not sure about how to enter the water, try one of these. I'm sure you'll make a big splash and impress all the sun bathers who will be watching!
LOL Sounds like fun!ReplyDelete
They seemed to be having a really good time!Delete
Ahhh, made me think like a kid again. Thoroughly enjoyable!ReplyDelete
Kids certainly have no inhibitions!Delete
Ah, me, children have it all covered . . . and then, sadly, they learn restraint . . . :-)ReplyDelete
Wouldn't it be funny if adults acted as kids?Delete
I miss those days. Around here, you can't run around the pools, you can't cannonball or splash much.ReplyDelete
That's cool they got to have so much fun!
We're really lucky to have a pool in our neighborhood!Delete
Haha, the last one seems hilarious, and the other new song, Gentleman.ReplyDelete
I haven't heard Gentleman. Or have I? Is that the one about the Gentleman not being so much of a gentleman?Delete
My gosh that takes me back too many years.ReplyDelete
Loved the post.
It's fun watching kids splash around in the pool. And it's even more fun when I splash around with them!Delete
Loved the post. Sounds great!ReplyDelete
So, are you going to try some of these? ;)Delete
I'd prob break my neck trying to do a cartwheel lolReplyDelete
It's a pity you didn't have a video camera with you. I'd would have loved to have seen them doing it Gangnam style. :)ReplyDelete
You know, I should just put the video camera in my purse so that I have it for moments like this!Delete
I once tried sliding down my sister's swirly ladder into her pool. It wasn't pretty. Especially since I fell off before I hit the water.ReplyDelete
Yes. Drinking was involved.
Shoulda tried that Miss America thing, instead.
Ouch! You'd probably do very well with the Miss America thing! ;)Delete
HA! What a hoot! It sounds like those girls know how to have fun. I'd have to pick the chicken dance one, just because it's the absolute last thing anyone would expect a nice little old lady to do.ReplyDelete
Ha! I'd like to see you do it! :0)Delete
Learn something new every dayReplyDelete
Amazing, isn't it?Delete
sorry, but I'd rather die than do anything Gangnam Style :)ReplyDelete
Inventive girls!! Gangnam style cracked me up! ;)ReplyDelete
It was quite a sight to see!Delete
There's nothing boring about any of their grand entrances! Good job to both of them.ReplyDelete
So much better than just walking down the steps into the pool!Delete
