I remember one time we were visiting my grandparents in Tennessee and we were outside play and my grandpa had the gardening hose out. She just knew something was going to happen because she warned us NOT to spray her. Well I’m sure you guess where this is going. My brothers and I sprayed her with the hose anyway and it was one of the funniest things ever. My grandpa said, “she’s madder than a wet hen”. We all laughed so hard.
