Well, maybe a little foolish

(Foolishness!)

That’s what my beloved wife said.

(A man of your age – such foolishness!)

Things of that sort.

You see, I went back to the school today. I do so like being with the children.

At lunch, they started a soccer game.

Naturally, I just had to play.

(Foolishness!)

Well, we were having a wonderful game, running up and down the play area outside the school.

(A man of your age!)

I managed to get the ball, and was heading toward the goal.

I was going to score!

(Foolishness!)

When I tripped.

(At your age!)

Actually, I flipped.

(Foolishness! Foolishness!)

And landed on my knee and face…

(Imagine, at your age!)

Bending my glasses, scraping my knee, and bruising my face, which is now swelling.

(Foolishness!)

So tonight I have an ice pack on my face.

And on my knee.

(I don’t know what you were thinking!)

Well, I know what I was thinking.

And I still think it:

Foolishness or not, it was fun!
