We're at the local swimming hole (sounds like something out of a Kenny Chesney song, but there's definitely no better description), I'm sitting on the retaining wall, ten feet above the water when I hear my nine-year-old niece, waist deep in the water below, calling my name. I lean over and say, "What?"
She says, "Can you come here a minute? I need your help." Now, clearly, she's not in dire need of help--she's only waist-deep, she's not struggling to breathe, she's in no obvious distress.
I say, "What do you need, honey?"
"I need your help, can you come down here?"
"Will you come pick my wedgie?"
I was hoping to wrap this post up with some clever comeback or punchline, but really, I think that line speaks for itself.
