Day 64/183: Friday’s Unscientific Poll: Which?

Our children have lived next to the canal since they were born. They’ve crossed the locks over the canal hundreds of times (supervised or carried). Remarkably, they’ve gotten to the ages of seven and a half, and five and a quarter, before one of them fell into it. This week, the streak was broken.



Poll #2100905 Who fell into the canal?

Which child fell into the canal?

Keiki
15(65.2%)
Humuhumu
8(34.8%)

I’m just glad it happened right outside the house instead of a mile down the towpath. We were able to get him stripped off, wrapped up, and into the shower straightaway.



Convincing him that this was not a hilarious jape and he should not repeat it is going to be more challenging. Especially since he lost one of his pairs of glasses.
