Good news, bad news

Prompt: man on beach taking video of kids at waters' edge.

Brother: the good news is that you just got a shot that would certainly get you into the finals at Americas Funniest videos.
The bad news is that your wife ( i suppose by the look she gave you) Hates that you seem to have almost let your toddlers drown in the pacific ocean, for the sake of getting a cute shot of them getting their feet wet.
CLUE4yoo: while one eye is in the view finder, the other eye is supposed to be looking off to the right, where the WAVES are coming from. Then you can at least shout a warning to the toddlers or your designer jeans wife in her jimmy choo's. Letting the two little girls get whacked by the wave, and soaked to the skin just earned you a week sleeping on the couch.

Her captured remark
(if I did not go, no one would have heard this)
"Don't ever listen to your father ( kids are wailing and wet)
He will let you get killed"
Do not ever do what he says!"

Carrying youngest (2) up the beach to the car,
GLARING at the criminally neglectful father

I love these people watching stories. The best place to see them here in Florida is any WalMart in a small town (like mine). It always seems the same... kids crying and parents yelling.

I think I've been going to the wrong beaches! I'm definitely with Russ: people watching is an incredibly fun and educational activity. I love how you shared this moment with us, David.

Tanya sent me on this beautiful eve.

Sad but true- some folks are a major accident waiting to happen, n trivialize danger.
Upsetting to witness without adding your 2 cents, isin't it?

Oops! Sounds like someone was in BIG trouble.
