Pitter-patter in a parking lot puddle.
It’s springtime in Oregon. The parking lots are filled with opportunities, uh, puddles. Taking advantage of these opportunities is easy:
- Survey the scene to ensure no one is watching.
- Stomp with only one foot at a time. Stomping with both feet results in soggy shoes and soppy socks (if you’re wearing any).
- Lift the “off” foot about six inches to keep it above the splash zone.
- Avoid puddles deeper than about 2-3 inches unless you’re wearing waterproof boots.
On second thought, there’s only one rule for puddle stomping:
- Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!
