It was Saturday and it was also my brother’s birthday.
He saw a stupid toy in the window of the local newsagents .
He really wanted it so I got it for his birthday.
It was one of those rockets that you pump water into and supposedly they launch 400 feet in the air.
That morning I woke up very early, the sun was shining and the birds were chirping.
I attempted to wrap his present.
That didn’t go too well.
I brought him out to the garden .
I pumped and pumped.
The look on his face when it just wouldn’t take off!
