I had to laugh tonight
at our 9 year old son as he was taking a bath
that went on entirely too long.
Strains of the theme song from Indiana Jones
drifted from under the door
amid the sound effects.
Cautiously, I opened the door.
He looked up grinning.
I was surprised he had not
worn his fedora in the tub.
His hair was not wet
nor was the wash cloth
handing over the side of the tub.
He beckoned me to the tub.
There in the tub with him
was a 8 inch gator, swamp boat, and safari man.
"I'm visiting the time of my childhood
since it has been so long ago."
I just walked away
and let him play.
