“Look at the AIR he got under him!”
Oh. My. Goodness.
He’s supposed to be sliding down a smooth school hill, no one said anything about AIR! Apparently some teenagers decided to add some moguls or whatever they are called (I’m from Miami, remember?) to the “gentle” sledding slope.
“Look, see that shadow, see, he’s lifting off from the snow there.”
“And then he got very, very far away…”
“And he said the cutest thing… He said, ‘Daddy, can you see me?’ And I said, ‘Yes!’ And he said, ‘Am I really, really small?’ And I said ‘Yes!’ And then he said, ‘Is my voice small like an ant’s?’
So what did you say?
“I said ‘Yes!’ because I didn’t want him to go any further away.”
At last, sanity prevails.
