mary, those shorts are pure fire. your bottom is really nice too.
So I work as a lifeguard in the water park at a theme park in my city. It’s a pretty nice gig. I work with a lot of my friends from school, and I’ve met a ton of new people which I’d love to get to know better. Well one day back in June (it had to have been on a Saturday because school was still in session, but just barely) I was on stand at one of the chairs on the wave pool. I was looking at all the kids and parents enjoying the water and each others company, but then something stuck out. I saw this woman between her early and mid 30’s and her son who was easily under 10, but no younger than 7. She wasn’t wearing a ring, and I didn’t see a possible father around. The woman was very beautiful, she looked great for a mother, and her child looked even better. His smiled stretched from ear to ear, and his dark brown hair shined in the sun almost brighter than his smile. The woman has her kid on her shoulders and is holding his hands in the air as she walked towards me. Her boy then piped up to me, “Hey! When the waves come on, look at me!!!” Being in a pretty good mood, I smiled and shouted back, “Sure thing bud!” As the waves kicked on in the pool, it’s almost as if these two had this thing rehearsed like a Broadway play. The mother started helping her son do all these flips, jumps, swims, dives and so on all with the movement of the waves. None of this stuff was over the top awesome, but there was something about it that just straight up wow’ed me. It’s not until right now that I’ve realized what was so beautiful about it. It was the connection the two of them had between each other. I’m wrong for assuming this, but I’m sure father doesn’t have a thing to do with them and is long gone, but those two are still strong and have each other. As I sat there and watched them, I imaged them waking up in the morning, she packs him a lunch, and he dresses himself, he comes downstairs, kisses her, and walks out to the bus. I was just so awed at the connection these two shared and the way they displayed it through this little routine in the wavepool.
As the waves stopped, they started to wade their ways out, I called to the woman, “Ma’am, you and your son are beautiful and amazing and have made my day. Thank you so much.” and she smiled and looked down back at me, “No, thank you” And I never saw them again. But I know somewhere out there, they’re still loving each other, and being amazing.
