Kid's dragline sounds more like promo tagline

It’s amazing what a person hears, just pausing on a private patio.

I stepped away for a few moments, grabbing a quick sandwich and settling into a shady spot outdoors to enjoy a quiet summer break.

Just then, a couple of boys rode by at full tilt on their bicycles. Glancing through the hedgerow, I guessed they must have been six or seven years old.

“Race ya!” the first one shouted.

“Ha!” the other answered.

“I win!”


“You’re a fat rat!”

“Well, be sure to check us out at Fat Rat Dot Com.”

I almost fell out of my chair. And I’m pretty sure the real winner of that exchange wasn’t the faster biker.
