Last Weekend I Scoured the Earth for Fun

Last weekend I scoured the earth for fun. I ran the race. I danced in the rain. I jumped hoops and ate holly-berry sandwiches. Then I took my pet Yeti and went for a walk in the park where Regular humans without Yetis either ran up or ran away screaming I had forgotten that some people are afraid of yetis, gargoyles, ducks. Being fearless, Yeti and I took a dive into the lake. Brr.... We froze our human-toids off, and I did not know he had human-toids. I painted some murals on my neighbor's face, and I whirled a bit. The twirling was there for the taking, but it would have been overkill. I refused to do anything I did not want to do. It being the weekend. I refuse to waste Saturdays doing stuff that does not make me happy. Sundays are for lounging in my bathtub until the water stops boiling. So yes, I did take a bath, with bubbles, and my pet octopus. The pink one, who is not so prissy, not the stuck-up blue one. My grandchildren came over and we painted the ceiling Not with a mere solid color, but with murals that irritated grandpa. We also formed a band, planted a garden, and built a tower. Kansas City had never seen such a tower: we are still marveling. I am pretending I have no idea who did it, as it ended up in The middle of I-70 and there may be a little fine involved. What did you do last weekend? And it better be something fun. I only understand joyous, wonderful, terrific, outstanding stuff. Oh, I almost forgot. I drove around in my fire truck blowing sirens. I was fined for that, by the police and fire chief. Thanks Dad!
