We Did Not

We did not go to the beach this afternoon as planned. It was a rare short day at work and I wanted to fill our afternoon to the brim. She collapsed into the tears over nothing as we were getting on the freeway and I turned the car around.

He disappointment disappeared as we stayed home and ate popcorn and ice cream. We swam in cold water and then splashed each other in the warm night. She performed dances on the trampoline and scared me with her antics on the swing set. She has no less than four tattoos decorating  her arms. We read about a square pumpkin that saved the day and then she drifted into dreamland before the sun faded away. Not what I planned but filled to the brim.
