Swimming Things


Me: Cole, tell me about my card.
Cole: Me? Ok. Ummm. There's swimming things, and I like it mama. It's like the, and I like the, the thank you, I like the writing on that. I like the cuttin' of the swimming things. I like the color of the white. Umm, I like the white lines there, it looks cool in the water like the water is poppin' up. Umm, I'll tell you something kind of funny. The swimming things. I like the beaks. It's like they are one colors of the other. Like that color should have been on that one and that one should have been on the third one. Ok, I'm done.
Me: Thanks Cole.
