Old Style Neighbours

Sonja leaned over the fence that separates us from the crazy fucking world today and asked the neighbours, "You want a kiddie pool? We got a spare one. Just needs to be cleaned out." We have kiddie pools for the dog. The Hammer loves a good splash on a hot day. The neighbours have twin girls just old enough to clamour into a kiddie pool and not drown right away.

The neighbours looked at each other and the man said, "Sure, we'll take it." He went to work right away cleaning up the plastic pool. When he was done, instead of filling up the pool for his girls, he took off in his pick-up. When he returned it did not take him long to set up the pool. Soon enough his twin girls were playing in the grass beside their dad's poolful of ice and Old Style.
