The licker

4 Jun

There’s always that kid.  Amongst a sea of kids bouncing on a jumping castle or climbing cargo net, all laughing and having fun, there’s that one kid who’s laughing with the rest, but only in between bouts of licking everything.  The licker.  

“NO, don’t lick that, yucky! The jumping castle is not for licking!”  the parents say every time the licker bounces too high and falls over.  Or “Put that tongue back in your mouth!” as all of the other parents stare, simultaneously cringing whilst secretly sighing in relief that the licker is not their child.

These lickers have inspired the stuck tongue on a frozen pole scene in many movies.

If Daniel gets sick in the next few days, I’ll know why.  Who knows what sort of germs are lurking on that probably never been washed jumping castle at the play place.    I told him a million times yesterday, much to his amusement “Jumping castles are not for licking, we don’t lick the jumping castle,” but he wouldn’t listen. Instead,  my words only inspired more laughter, in between bouts of licking, of course.

      Nope, he didn’t get sick 🙂 He hardly ever does (luckily).
