At The Playground- 24 May 2022

….like Benita Buttrell from In Living Color, I see everything.

Hey, you’ll never guess what I saw on Sunday.

So after church service I went home to chill and enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest, surprisingly warm, Spring day. Late in the afternoon as I was getting snacks ready to watch the NBA playoffs when I looked out my kitchen window and saw a peculiar occurrence.

My backyard borders the neighborhood park and with our old-school metal fence, like Benita Buttrell from In Living Color, I see everything. Even stuff I don’t want to see. Like one day a couple moths ago I saw two girls dancing, on the tether ball pole. Last month I saw some teenagers trying to ride their bikes over the picnic table, without a ramp. But last Sunday what I saw surprised me.

So there I was, looking out the window while pouring butter over my popcorn, when a little boy goes down the slide, looks left & right, then makes a dash for my fence line. He proceeds to pull down his pants and takes a whiz. Yes, the little boy, I’m sure he was younger than eight, just peed out in the open!

I’m wondering if I’m in for more strange sightings on the playground this summer. I’ll be sure to let you know.
