Water Gun Play

 


I woke up to a loud squeak. 

"What's happening?" I inquired with urgency. 

I saw my children play with water guns in the house. 

"No! we don't play with squirt guns." I disapproved while staring at the wet couch and puddles of water everywhere. 

"But why, mom. It's summertime." they protested in unison.

I took a deep sigh as if I agreed with what they had just said, directed them outdoors.

They both looked confused since the sun was over their head. 

 With a grin, I said, "Carry on! Make a mess; wet all that you want; it'll dry."



 In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story using the phrase “carry on.” It can be an expression of perseverance or behaving in a particular way. It can even be luggage you take when traveling. Go where the prompt leads!

Oh yay! Carry on playing. I like it! It will dry.

Right time, wrong place for water play.
Isn't it too bad though, how much "play" includes some form of gun?

Thank you Ashok for dropping by!



Thanks Norah. Fun in the Sun always helps :)


Thanks D. I agree 'fun' with a gun can be tricky.
