A Rake In My Derriere



My sister just reminded me of a funny story that I had to post. I can't believe I've never thought about it before....

One snowy day, many years ago, Me and my brother and sister had this fabulous idea to go outside and play in the freshly fallen snow in the backyard. Along with us we took our favorite mini trampoline. We set it up in order to run and jump off of it and land in the soft snow. I decided to go first. I backed up and started to run. I jumped onto the trampoline and flew into the air. What happened next was unexpected. Instead of the soft snowy landing, I got a surprise. A sharp stinging pain to the buttocks. I jumped up and cried, "What was that?" We looked and saw that my snowsuit had been punctured and yes there was a little bloody on the bum. My brother dug into the snow where I landed and found an old rusty rake hiding underneath. And so a word to the wise...Always remember to check the snow before you jump unless your want to get a Rake In Your Derriere!

Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to remember to make sure my rake is safely put away before it snows! That's too funny!!
