Slip And Slide!

I remember when I was little, I couldn't wait for a hot summer's day when the slip and slide would be dragged out of the garage and rolled out across our front lawn. The hose would be inserted into the slip and slide and the sprinklers turned on around it. We would run through the sprinklers and throw ourselves down on the slide, either on our butts or tummies, and slide gleefully across the plastic onto the grass. Never fail, "Carrie the Klutz's" knee would inevitably find a sprinkler head and she would injure her knee. One summer, I did this about five times, cutting my knee in the same place. Today, at age 53, I still have that scar on my knee.
