I'm always so very impressed when a writer can pack a ton of ideas into very few words. This is one of those stories. It's short but it left such an impact on me that I found myself thinking about it a lot last night. A story about young Sheldon's childhood, it will make you see him in a whole new way.
Erin and Missy and the other girls are going to Waterworld, but Shelly would rather go swimming in Meemaw's pool. Shelly does not like Waterworld's rules. They aren't fair.
Meemaw doesn't have any rules about the pool except wait half an hour after eating (sensible), wear sunblock (also sensible), and don't pee in the pool (very sensible). No rules about what you can or can't wear.
This is a sweet story, but wonderfully bittersweet. I don't want to give too much away. Just go read it.
