The Torch

I'm still layin' on my bed watchin''s been rainy all' mom's been locked in her room all day cleanin' an' sortin'...she started in her closet an' expanded out to the rest of the room an' drawers...
...personally, I think it looks worse then when she started. Stuff an' bags everywhere.   So, although it's a quiet day, I'm still chucklin' over last nite's lil' episode.  What happened was, mom found one of our "torches" while she was pullin' stuff out of her room.  It was', she got some fresh batteries an' proceeded to put it on me.  I've worn it before, so it was no biggee.  She opened the door an' out I went w/that torch on my head an' all lit up.  Lexie was right behind me for about a nano second.  I didn't get 4 steps outside before she jumped up an' grabbed that lit up torch on top of my head an' started pullin'.  Now, you gotta realize it's got big stretchy straps.  I stopped...Lexie had that torch in her mouth an' was pullin'...she had it stretched about as far as it would go...about 3 was horrified an' was yellin' (she said she could just imagine Lexie lettin' go of it an' it smackin' me in the face). Well, we reacted like we always do when mom sounds excitable like that...we took off.  Lexie still had the strap an' torch with me still attached to the other end, an'  we were goin' off at full speed in the dark w/that lite bouncin' up an down.  Mom had to stop 'cause she was laughin'' besides there's no way she could keep up.  All she could do was stand there in the dark an' watch the bouncin' lite make about 3 laps around the yard.  She decided that she might have time to go get her camera an' headed for the house.  We beat her there....but we had lost the lite.  What kind of video would that have been anyway....just a lil' lite bouncin' in the dark?  So, out she goes....she finds it by the fig tree..three straps/one torch/ two batteries/ and the cap.  All I can say is we got distracted by the fig tree an' mom headin' for the house...I went one way around that tree...Lexie went the other...the torch stayed in the

Now, imagine that stretched out an' about ready to smack you in the face if she let go....heck yes, I followed her when she took
