This is a sequel to Escape from Stupidity. There are no Steve McQueen motorcycle chase scenes, just kids playing with big sticks.
After a fairly friendly run-in with the School Resource Officer, aka, cop, last week, we also had another pleasant experience at the park. No, that alone does not make a Peak Stupidity post. It's just that this time, we got even more out of the era of hysteria, if only temporarily, as the 4 kids grabbed some 8-10 ft. long sticks* and had sword fights for half an hour!
It was my boy, 2 kids a bit younger, and a girl from his class who amazingly likes to play with the boys. What was so enjoyable to me was that there were no freaked-out Moms and no scolding. The Mom of one of the boys was gone, entrusting me with her boy, and then the Dad of the two other kids was raking leaves across the street at their house (great location!).
Face masks were the least of anyone's worries. Yeah, one boy got hit in the face, but he told me quickly "I'm alright", as if afraid I was about to tell them to stop. I do believe the school Principal would have had a early-onset heart attack were this happening during recess. She doesn't even allow balls, so that the kids end up throwing shoes at each other!
OK, I've got my safe space now from the Kung Flu stupidity. Thank you all for reading the blog. Posts are lined up for next week.
* They were pieces of some shrubbery that had gotten out of hand, I guess, but with the leaves and other branches stripped off.
