So, the other night I was sitting on the deck working on a project and watching the kids playing in the backyard. All of a sudden there was a loud click and the sprinkler starting spraying across the lawn. A little shocking, but we are in the process of replanting some grass and have a sprinkler system set up to a timer so we just laughed and I told the kids to stay out of the water.
I was minding my own business when I noticed that the sprinkler was starting to spray the deck. Surely, I thought, it would stop and go back out towards the lawn. Nope, it sprayed right into the kitchen through the screen door. But, now, surely it would stop and go back into the lawn. Umm, nope. To my dismay, this huge, deluge of super-soaker water was still coming my way with no means of escape. I grabbed my project, yelped and dashed for cover under the table. Crazy sprinkler!
J's not quite sure why the sprinkler was set to such a trajectory. Maybe it was the victim of some child tampering. :) The kitchen was quite wet--but on a postitive note, now quite clean. ;)
