overheard by the kids

As they were enjoying the baby pool on our deck.

"Ugh...those pools are awful. They are such a waste of water..."

pagans. killjoys. hippies. neighbors. people i'm called to love.

I'll add "obviously child-less" to the list.

Waste of water? a pool that holds all of 10 gallons? especially in Minneapolis, where we get ALL our water from the Mississippi... so even in a rain drought, we have no water shortage here.

You should have thrown water balloons at them, but then they would have accused you of wasting water...
