Joey strode towards the small clearing by the edge of Esrann Canyon, a smug determination clear in his bouncing steps. I winced and slowly followed at his back. ‘Camping’ –nothing good could come from this.
With a flick of his shoulder, his Superman backpack slid down his arm and he whipped it open, tipped it upside down, and then raise an eyebrow. Instead of tent poles, tent sheets, and whatever else should have been included in a camping pack, out drifted a long sliver of pink plastic.
“Camping stuff… right…” I rolled my eyes.
“Shh, shh,” he waved impatiently then picked up the vibrant pink plastic. “Ah-ha!” he exclaimed, then blew into it with huge huffs and puffs as though he were the big bad wolf trying to blow down a piggy’s house.
“Er,” I cringed. “Do I even want to ask what you’re doing?”
“Mmmmf, mmf, MMMFFFFFFFFFF,” he replied, still blowing into the plastic.
“Mmmf, mmmf?” I smirked. “An improvement from your usual babble.”
I rolled my eyes again, then widened them as the plastic pink sheet billowed into a massive pink baby pool, or something like it. It reminded me of my sister’s baby pool from ten years ago… the one that I would always kick her out of and use for myself. Ahh, memories.
“Camping supplies, eh?” I smiled. “What, do we flip it over and sleep underneath?”
“I know!” Joey gasped, still regaining his breath. “We toboggan it down ol’ Esrann!”
