Lynda Loveland: You can take the boy out of the city, but ...
Posted July 10, 2013
I've discovered that there are a lot of things that I consider common knowledge, but people who grow up in the city may not know. It's always very evident when my family takes our annual trip to the farm.
This year, my dad bought four chicks for the kids. He needed more anyway. The hawks and raccoons got a bunch of them. The kids had such a great time playing with them, named them all of course. We all also went rappelling/climbing down a hill/cliff to get to the river and go fishing.
My older two LOVE fishing. The worms we dug up just weren't cutting it, so we bought some big and meaty night crawlers. As you probably know, you keep them in the fridge. My son found that fascinating.
The next day I took out the worms, lifted off the top and they were all dead and sorta deflated looking. I said, hey what happened, the worms are dead? My sister said that while I was at the store, Caiden, who found the worms sooo fascinating, thought they would do better in the freezer! But then he decided that wasn't a good idea and stuck them in the MICROWAVE to thaw them out!
Needless to say, by the time we used them, they were more like night crawler jerky. But you know what, they still worked!
