2G Another Pebble in the Lagoon
June 18, 2007
If I were a skilled fiction writer, I would jazz up my story of our trip with Random Granddaughter to the lake with an exciting plot line.
The real life trip was pleasant, but not very exciting. After Random Granddaughter had thrown many pebbles into the lagoon, we went to the main part of the lake.
Random Granddaughter has no fear of heights. As she plans to be a firefighter, high height confidence will be an advantage. However, in the meantime, as she climbed some rocks on the banks of the lake, she scared Mommies and grandparents.
It’s not as if she is not acquainted with the principles of gravity. RG frequently runs at high speed and falls down, often leading to tears. Although, during our walk, she ran and tumbled into the path, picked herself up, and announced, “I am not crying.”
However, she doesn’t seem concerned with standing on rocks six feet above other rocks or have much sense that a bounce would be harder than falling down on the path.
Another plot line could involve falling into the lake and having to be rescued from a great white shark.
On the other hand, sharks are becoming identified as endangered species, so it might have been a case of rescuing the shark from RG.
On yet another hand, the budding little scientist might have pointed out that sharks are seldom found in lakes.
Although the chicken grandparents avoided going on a canoe because of ominous weather, as the day progressed, the sun came out, the clouds disappeared, the wind died down, and we saw many canoes, kayaks, and other boats pass by.
Despite various disappointments and missteps, everyone seemed to have a good time.
