Its a swamp

[Narrated by dad, using Z's "voice"]

Our house (and thirty others) are on a little pond. So, when we went to Toys'R us to buy my "monthly toy", daddy said he was also going to buy a radio-controlled boat.

Daddy put it in the pond and moved the lever on the remote. It started fast, but began to slow down. Daddy turned it around. It went slower and slower. Then it stopped. It was still too far to reach. Daddy didn't like my idea. "No!" he said, "don't wade in there. I'll try another way."

Mom: "You're going to throw electric cable in the lake!"
Z: "We don't have a fishing rod".

The first few times, the cable missed the boat and came up with lots of green stuff -- looked like sea-weed. Daddy said that's why the boat must have slowed and stopped -- there must be weeds around the propeller. Yes, it was weeds.

Dad: "We live on a swamp".
Z: "That's funny".
Mom didn't think so!
