You knew I was going to do something ridiculous today because it was above 75 degrees before 6:30 am as I walked the dog. I work in an office right by the restored Georgetown Waterfront Park. Everyday, rain or shine, I hear screams of joy and relief. When I peak out for an afternoon walk, I see children, teenagers, and occassionally adults frolicking happily and carefree.
I will sit on the benches envying them because for most people it’s only socially acceptable to join in the fun if you are:
- under the age of 8
- parent of a child already playing in the fountain
- wearing workout clothing
- dare friends
- having a white t-shirt contest
Of course, I don’t fall into any or my own requirements, but what the heck. It’s 98 degrees (feels like a 100) and to celebrate the record day I went through the fountain and only got a tiny bit wet because I forgot about gravity. If you want to feel like a kid again (or smell like a public pool), you know where to go.
