FRIDAY: Hot water is overrated

(Continued)

You know how your mom told you not to slurp your pop loudly through the straw? Don’t let her near Vworp. She’d probably ground it from carbonated drinks for a month.

Back and forth, back and forth — sucking up the water was like painting in reverse. A stroke here and another there, and the canvas that was my basement floor suddenly looked less like a glossy print and more like a coarse, blank matte. If only I could reverse spend money by reverse painting the floor.

A few gallons later and the puddle party was broken up. I think most of the crickets went the way of dead goldfish.

Vworp had passed its first major experiment. And I hadn’t dropped the cord into the puddle.

I can’t believe I had the gumption to use electricity around a puddle of water.
