Maxism

You'll have read about Max towing his boat. To make it tow properly, we add a weight at the back in the form of a rock we picked up from the shoreline.

You also need to know that the kids have asked us when they can scuba dive, and we've told them not until they are ten years old.

We get in the dinghy to go ashore and tow Max's boat. Issie picks it up from the water but the rock drops out the back. PLOP. WAAAH. Max is furious and screaming at Issie. I try to defuse the situation.

"Well, OK Max, we've lost the rock that we got from the shore yesterday. What do you think we can do about that?"

"We can wait RIGHT HERE until we are older then dive down and get it."
"Hmmm, don't you see a problem with that plan?"
"Well, yes, when we get down there we might not know which rock is our rock"

Issie chimes in "We could go to the shore and get another one......" Good girl.
