SIX SENTENCE STORY: Pound … by Candy

Rain pounded on the porch roof. It had started as an occasional plink, plink, plink, but now it drummed with it’s own rhythm. The yard once dry was now a small pond. We stood on the porch and watched as the wind whipped gusts created eddies and ripples. I took off my shoes. My small daughter watched in disbelief; I really need to teach this child how to have fun!

    1. I may have exaggerated the small pond part. But it is true that my daughter couldn’t believe that I wanted to go out and play in it. She could be so unfun sometimes. Once I wanted to dance down the isle of the supermarket like in a commercial and she told me that if I did that she was going to pretend she didn’t know me. She was only seven.


  1. When I was a kid, I used to play in the rain all the time! My mom would raise our garage door, and I would go in and out, filling empty coffee cans from the drain spout and splashing about. My kids act like rain is going to cause them to melt. Nice story!


  2. What a great story. I’ve heard the story over and over of how, as a child, I was told not to walk in puddles with my shoes and socks on. Always abiding, I removed my shoes and socks to jump in the puddles.
