Never Too Old to Have Fun

I listened to them from my perch on the top step and didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry…

“Can you even believe we’re related to them?”

I watched my parents run around the front yard with squirt bottles. They dodged and swerved the streams as they tried to get each other wet.

“They’re like a couple of children out there!” my sister whined. “What if someone we know drives by and sees them?”

I sighed. Did it really matter? “Look at them,” I said. “They’re having fun. Who cares?”

“I do,” she snapped. “They’re embarrassing.”

Their laughter echoed in my ears. I couldn’t help but smile.

“Where are you going?” my sister asked.

“To get a squirt bottle.”
