Gross Negligence


What's the first thing you think of when you see a old rusty wooden board that hangs over a rocky part of the Mediterranean? Me? Backflips. We are happily lying out on the wooden service deck lovin' life and Saige says to me, "Mom, can I go off it?" "Of course, I say yes." Lisa looks at me like I'm crazy. "Do you think that's a good idea?" she asks me. "I think it's a great idea," I say. Such a great one that I need to go first. We both jumped once first, just to test the waters, so to speak. It was fine, so it was trick time. Let me tell you, backflipping from like 25 feet in the air involves almost no skill at all, just flip. Lisa said to me, "You know, it's funny, a lot of times I think things aren't a good idea and then you say you do and I think, fine," So Saige held her hand and she jumped too.

Way to go Lisa! Taking the plunge into any unknown water is the real Fountain of Youth.

Now that does look fun. Back flip, no chance a sure belly or back flop, but the jump does look awesome into that water. Nice job Lis. Hope Amy got a shot of that one. Miss you guys.

Saigey.. I am so proud of you for taking the plunge. Not many 10 year olds would have the guts to do it.
Not many 31 year old aunts to said 10 year old would have the guts to do it.
