Big E: Sidewalk Troll

I've been spending many afternoons slowly deweeding my flower beds.  They were so neglected, that I can only do a little at a time before I want to stab my eyes out with my gardening tools.

Big E is my constant gardening companion.  He (attempts to) rake, sweep, and pull weeds.

He also greets all of my neighbors as they meander by on their afternoon walks.

One neighbor walked by with his two big dogs and his little girl.  I'd say she was about a year younger than Big E.

I watched in horror as Big E made himself into a human gate in the middle of our sidewalk.

SAY PLEASE AND I'LL LET YOU BY.

She just stood there and stared at him.  She wasn't saying sh*t.

SAY PLEASE AND I'LL LET YOU BY.

Nothing.

I began encouraging Big E to let her pass.  Her dad was halfway up the hill with the dogs.  He also was  encouraging her to keep walking.

SAY PLEASE!  SAY PLEASE!

I carefully untangled my arms from the thorny rose bushes and removed Big E from the sidewalk.

NEXT TIME BRING YOUR TOLL MONEY AND WE WON'T HAVE TO DO THIS.

Big E didn't actually say this, but I wouldn't have been shocked if he did.

This kid is making ALL kinds of neighborhood pals.
