hustling kids part deux
9:20 pm sunsets means the after-dinner playtime is prime swindlin’ time. Time to grab your wheels and get your hustle on…..
I’ve mentioned in an earlier post that one way I like to make money is to hustle kids, specifically placing bets with them about holding a fly that looks exactly like a bee.
Well, now we’re heavy into wheels season. The challenge is to grab any wheels of your choice to race down the steep hill and halfway up the driveway.
Kids get sucked into thinking their choice of weapon- bike, scooter,whatever is the key to a win. Our state isn’t big on a lot of science in our standardized testing, so I don’t blame the kids for overlooking the obvious physics of the situation stacked against them. The hill drops steeply early and I weigh four times what they do- launching me out ahead from the start. Love those suckers.
Action in the yard this week.
This little groundhog is acting whack.
I’m pretty sure it’s smaller than its siblings and acting weird because it is infected with Baylisascaris procyonis parasite…. which basically means that there’s little parasitic critters eating its brain. The parasites usually come from raccoon feces.
