Last night, I was in my nightgown and doing some work at the computer; Zboy was settling in with a book; Darling Man was already asleep.
There was a knock at the door.
Dusk was settling towards night - it was about 8:30pm. The knock came again. I looked out the window. No cars.
So I went downstairs and peeked through the keyhole to see a woman standing on my doorstep. I opened the door.
"Can you come out and play?"
BB had come over!!!! What a surprise!!! She had a new toy and was anxious to show it to me. Zboy pulled on some pants and we went outside. Her new toy was a motorized scooter that her brother had bought. We were already ready for bed, but I told her I'd love to play tomorrow.
To this evening, we went out in the front yard and waited... Zboy asked what direction she'd be coming from and I pointed the way. He hung out at the end of the driveway looking and finally yelled, "Here she comes!!!!"
She was coming kind of slowly (odd for her), but as she got closer, the reason became clear....
Scooter party at my house!!!!
Zboy got to try it out. We couldn't figure out how to make the seat lower, so BB helped at first, but Zboy figured it out in no time and was executing tight turns without falling over.
Even I got to play!
