An Umbrella Is Not a Parachute

From Daddy: I’m so proud of him and his basketball team! Their opponents today were stronger, bigger, and older, but yet his team stayed competitive and had the stamina and/or depth to dominate the second half! Click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7V8YMcGt0E.

This Morning

While we walked in the rain with umbrellas on the way to our haircuts, he asked me, “Daddy, does an umbrella truly help when you’re skydiving?”

I said, “No, an umbrella isn’t strong enough or big enough to make a difference.” Then I thought about it. “But, you know there is something big enough and strong enough, right? You know what it’s called.”

He asked, “What?”

I replied, “A parachute!”

He half-laughed, “Oh yeah! A parachute!”

A couple of minutes later, he took a couple of small hops. “You’re right,” he declared, “it didn’t help at all [in slowing his fall].”

Last Week

He was great last week in shooting practice…

…and his team had a great game!
