My children have spent the wee dawning days of summer re-enacting the World Cup.
On this side, representing the Bipedia, we have the Daughter and the Son.
On the other side, from the United Republic of Retrievers, we have Koa and Brody.
And we’re off! Daughter runs the ball, easily dodges Koa, and heads down the field. Son goes running after, screaming that he wants a turn.
The goalie stands firm. Daughter feigns to the side, then punts the ball past the goalie, who pounces on it, grabs it in his teeth, and runs away.
Son starts screaming: “You can’t use your TEETH!” then grabs the goalie by the scruff. A scuffle ensues.
Daughter grabs the now-flat ball and throws it into the goal. Koa is standing by the back door trying to get out of the stadium and into the concession stand.
Son starts screaming that the goalie sat on him. Daughter is now playing on the swings. Goalie is eating a piece of chalk.
Referee grabs the ball and tries to get the game back on track, but now we’ve degenerated into mass chaos. Not unlike a real World Cup game, as far as I can tell, or maybe rugby.
Ref calls a time-out and runs to get some water. By then, someone’s going headfirst down the slide and the hose is now on. Koa is sitting forlornly under the table with a handful of daisies stuck to her head.
When does school start again?

I have loathed summer ever since my first child was school aged. Sounds like you need to crawl under the table with Koa and share the daisies!

All my kids are furry four-legged ones. I think I’m better off!
Dr V, I have to tell you that your blog is something that I look forward to every morning. It might make me laugh, make me cry, or just give me something to think about, but it is always special. Thank you for what you do.
I totally agree with your comments about the blog! Same here!
Poor Koa! Some girls (and boys too) are cut out more for watching sports than playing sports. I can just visualize this whole scene. Love it!
Dr. V says
Aw, thanks guys. I appreciate that.
I can see the whole thing in my head! Actually wish I had been there to be part of the chaos! Thank you for the funny start to my day. 🙂
We look forward to your blog every morning also.
Oh so cute and funny LOL I Love it 🙂 Maybe used the stuffed soccer ball next time , the one with the rope tuggies LOL
Sounds like it ended in a tie…
My goalie always poops on the goal line :>(
Lol! I wish you had video taped this. Actually, does anyone use video tapes anymore? Well, ‘recorded’ this.
Btw, I want to thank everyone for thier kind comments over the last week or so. =’) You guys are so caring.
