‘It’s a reverse pool Sid!’ Bobby cried.
‘What?’
‘Come on in and you’ll see!’
After removing his shoes and socks, Sid entered the water.
‘You idiot! It’s freezing!’
‘What did you expect? A hot spa? That’s not what I meant. Come closer and look.’
Bobby stood a few feet away from his friend, his ankles barely covered.
Sid however was at the edge and almost up to his knees!
‘It’s deeper at the sides than it is in the middle, see?’
‘I don’t care.’ Sid said. ‘It’s cold and I’m getting out. My mum will kill me if I ruin my trousers.’
Disappointed that Sid hadn’t fallen for his joke and continued to wade towards him,
Bobby stepped off the rock he had covered with shingle.
He splashed his way back to the edge and Sid helped him out.
‘Idiot!’ he said again, playfully punching him on the shoulder.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
