Slugs Like Water, Too


The Girl smacked her head into the concrete wall of the pool at swim practice. Hard. It’s what happens when you get distracted & don’t count your strokes. Concerned she might have a concussion, her coach told me to keep an eye on her.

Me, looking up symptoms of a concussion while The Boy lingers nearby: “Let’s see… Headache? No. Dizziness? A little. Sluggishness….?”

The Boy, eyeing his sister lounging in her big comfy chair: “How could we tell?”

Even at a meet, she's glued to her phone.
