It finally happened. I am only surprised that it took this long. My five-year old has outgrown me.
We were watching America's Funniest Home Videos
. I have learned a lot from that show. One thing: piñatas are a bad idea, all of the time.
A dad was holding a piñata that had broken from its string. (I don't know how to say that any less awkwardly.)
So, he decided to do the only rationale thing. Not retie the string. Not open it on the ground. He thought to himself. Well, there is a tree right there. I should break the piñata by chucking it at the tree. Never mind, that the tree is surrounded by five-year old girls. What could possibly go wrong?
Of course, he missed the tree. However, he did succeed in smashing a little girl. She was knocked over.
I laughed. (I admit it is in poor taste to laugh at a little girl that has just been attacked by a flying piñata.)
Isaac looked at me and just shook his head in disgust. Really, Dad? Really? This girl's misfortune amuses you?
I am ashamed.
