E is for...
Exuberance...that joyful moment when the sun has heated the water all afternoon until it is the perfect temperature. The scent of the bbq is wafting across on the afternoon breeze. Your pleas to Uncle Sion have been heard and answered. Weapons are found - a hose for you and a Viking helmet for him. With giggles and shrieks, the water fight starts. The water quickly empties; soaking t-shirts, splashing onlookers, fanning out like a spider's web of wetness.
Until as suddenly as it started the teeth start to chatter, the t-shirt gets cold and soggy, attention is taken by the burger topped with plastic cheese. Towels are found to wrap you in as you devour the burger a grin plastered to your face. The first water fight of the Summer is over...the photos remain forever.
