This morning, at the crack of dawn, I dragged my son to the bus stop. It was his first day back after summer break. None of us were too pleased to be standing there in the dark. (Yes, the bus comes before the sun rises, which in my opinion, is absolutely ridiculous!)
We stood, patiently waiting. But then something happened. We heard a swish sound, and a nano second later, the sprinkler system at the entrance of our neighborhood came on, dousing us with cold water.
"What the heck!" I said, quickly dodging the sprinkler before I got even wetter.
Bubba, who wasn't nearly as wet as me, laughed. "It's your morning shower, Mama! Now you can start your day, clean and shiny!"
