Remember when you were young and found a puddle after a big rainstorm? The first thing you wanted to do was go out and play in it, and you hoped a friend would come along so that you could splash them. It wasn’t something mean, it was all about fun… and the muddier the puddle was, the better.
It wasn’t until we got older that splashing someone became a bad idea. Well, it never really was a good idea but the only one who really got mad was mom and she generally got over it pretty quick.
As we get older the idea seems to be rejected to splash your friend by jumping in a puddle of water. Note, I did not say it was less fun, just maybe not so much a good idea. Adult are normally on their way somewhere and since they are in charge of cleaning their own clothing the idea becomes less appealing.
However, if you have a day that you have nothing special to do, nothing dress up to go to or an important meeting to attend… why not give is a splash!?! Maybe, if you have kids, take them along… they are pretty easy to soak and generally take it better.
So go ahead and have some fun today, hopefully it will rain where you are… if it doesn’t you can always turn on a hose unless it’s freezing out. Which makes me wonder, did whoever create today realize hat at least in the northern states the water might be frozen!?!
How to celebrate – Find a puddle. Remember to put on some old clothes. Wet suits for diving are not allowed.
