I saw something on the way home from the supermarket this afternoon that absolutely cracked me up!
Walking towards me were a herd of small boys, 9 or 10 in age, mucking about as boys of that age do. One golden haired little cherub was throwing a football into the air and nonchalantly catching it again.
All went well till he happened to do it while walking through a bus shelter.
The ball went straight up and hit the underside of the shelter roof. It then descended at about 90 mph, in a straight line, landing right on the top of his head!
I suppose it would have been marginally less funny if it had brained him! Though I suspect that being a nasty person, I still might have had a quiet snigger, but as it, was apart from going slightly cross eyed, and stopping chewing the cud for about 5 seconds, he was undamaged.
However, the look of absolute astonishment on his face, while experiencing this demonstration of Isaac Newtons second and third laws of motion, had to be seen to be appreciated!
None of the other boys even noticed! Shoulders shaking I walked on home!
