Failure To Launch

We had a plan.

Things were going splendidly.

The anticipation was at its peak.

The children could hardly wait.

But something went wrong.

And the children were not happy anymore.

And it was all Uncle Bo's fault.

Then, something unexpected happened.

The children began to laugh again.

They embraced one another, forgetting about the past.

Love was in the air.

We looked past Uncle Bo's five attempts to launch his lame rocket.

We made the most of our afternoon...even though it was a failure to launch.

So there we were, enjoying plan B.

And I must say, I do love a good plan B.
