    Riding my bike past a suburban home. 3 little kids wearing water wings tossed balloons from the side yard, which landed behind me.
    I went on, but it occurred to me, with a pool in the back yard, where was the parent or sitter, not realizing the kids were over in the side yard tossing balloons at passerbys?

    Open carry would have prevented this.

    I will do a drive-by to see if they are back out when I go to the store. :)

    A long time ago I managed a boat rental place at a local, busy lake. It was one of the Big 3 Weekends so all our junk was rented and out on the water so we had some downtime. I look out my office window and see a Sheriff's deputy walking down the dock walkway and man was he ever sweating in that uniform. Well, turns out it wasn't sweat. It was from a water balloon launched from about my dock area about 200 yards or so over the parking lot and just happened to hit him as he was patrolling the swim beach. Seem as if a couple of my guys had one of those crew served launchers and were pelting the beach with water balloons. Boy did I have some 'splainin' to do.

    I'd have turned my head and yelled...

    "missed me! missed me! now you gotta kiss me!"

    then I'd stick my tongue out at them

    With the heat here, I'd welcome it and tell them to aim for the head.

    We used to use a huge slingshot we made to launch water balloons over our college dorm onto unsuspecting sunbathing co-eds. And the next-door fraternity house. Tough to get them through the windows with indirect fire, but their porches were kill zones.

    Men are so simple.

    Go out and buy a SuperSoaker and exact revenge! And teach the kids all about the 2nd Amendment and gun safety during the process.

    Actually, their parents told them to throw them at you. They don't like you.
