“Tara! Where have you been? And where’s your sister?”
” We were just playing on the rocks by the water, Mommy,” replied Tara.
“She’s playing ‘fish’,” replied the young girl.
“What are you talking about?” asked her mother.
“I told her that people can breathe underwater like fishes and she said they couldn’t so I held her under the water to show her.”
“What? Oh my God!” yelled their mother, running towards the rocky shore.
“It’s ok, Mommy. She’s still floating there!” Tara yelled after her mother.
She grinned. It was nice to finally prove her sister wrong.
