Let's begin with the cast. Construction was complete on the new elementary school in Small Town, USA. The kids were all excited about moving into their new digs. NEW PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT - YIIPPEEE! The monkey bars were calling his name.
On this particular day, the children chose to play tag - ON THE MONKEY BARS. Well, The Surveyor decided to practice his Spider Man moves, and crawled through the top bars. His plan was to ease himself down to the ground. As we all know, things don't always go according to plan.
The next thing he knew, he was lying on the ground with his armed pinned underneath his little body. The teacher said he was fine, the principal said he was fine, the nurse said he was fine.
The doctor, however, said he had a fracture. That's where the cast came in.
Now, about the straw. There is no better way to enjoy a chocolate milkshake than to sip it through a Crazy Straw. Remember those?
This particular relic, um really cool straw, came to him compliments of Shakey's Pizza. Did you ever go to Shakey's? They had a little area where you could stand and watch the guys in the barber shop quartet hats toss pizza. In addition, they gave all of the kids Crazy Straws. I have no idea if the pizza was any good. We were in it for the straws.
I never had a blue straw, only red. The Surveyor had both. He was spoiled.
I would also like to point out his pants, as if you hadn't already noticed them. Don't they just SCREAM 1972?
Thanks for stopping by for a little trip back in time. For more laughs, run on over to the Sincerely 'Fro Me To You carnival at We Are THAT Family. You won't regret it!
