How To Cool Off In A Texas Summer

OK, Kailani of An Island Life is having a neat writing contest. For all the details visit HERE. I'm kind of late entering as I've been busy with other things (like catching up on blog reading!) so I hope this isn't too late. (I believe I have until midnight tonight)

First, take two mischevious little boys who want to cool off and have some fun. (See picture below)

Second, get a bunch of water balloons.

Third, have them strip down as much as possible without being indecent (the boys, not the balloons).

Fourth, go outside (this one is very important)

Fifth, Fill up the balloons with water.

Sixth, Take the filled balloons very carefully to the agreed upon place for the fun to begin.

Note that squeezing the balloon like this before you get ready is NOT recommended.
Also note that zipping up your pants is probably a good idea also.

Seventh, get your friend to stand directly under the said water balloon while you stand ready with a nail or any other sharp object.

Eighth, insert sharp object into balloon and wallaa, you have a way to enjoy a Texas Summer!!!

Alternatively, if you don't have any friends, you may do it to yourself!

Finally, if you are feeling really adventurous, you can do it multiple people at the same time!

What a great way to enjoy a Texas summer. (by the way, these were taken a couple of years ago when Brandon was quite a bit smaller!!!)

I think your plan would work in NM too! Boy it's been hot (except for the days we've had flash floods!). Check out my article on How to make a large (and expensive) paperweight:
