This is a childhood memory that still makes me laugh. We played military a lot because my dad and uncles were in the military (retired now). My dad would bring home lots of military clothing, random items, and MRE's for us to have.
Hi! I'm Josh.
It was 1980 something and my brothers and I loved playing military outside.
Hey! I'm Jess.
Hi! I'm Jon.
Josh can climb up in that tree to get a better view and not be seen.
We had a very grumpy neighbor and wanted to know when he got home so we could go inside. We formed the plan called Mission Possible.
I will throw Jess's canteen in the air as soon as I spot Mr. Grumpy.
We helped Josh climb up the tree. Jon and I found places to hide near the tree and waited for Mr. Grumpy to come home.
Don't forget my canteen!
As soon as Josh spotted Mr. Grumpy, he threw the canteen as high as possible. Josh realized he made a mistake once the canteen was high in the air.
The canteen landed in Mr. Grumpy's front yard. Everyone yelled!
Josh climbed down the tree and ran as fast as possible to retrieve the canteen. All three of us sprinted to the house.
