One fateful sunny afternoon in Maine, before a crowd of a million blackflies, the gladiators’ might was tested. Severely tested.
They came armed with the sharpest of swords and the mightiest of shields, and the sturdiest of ………
to settle once and for all the question – ‘who giggles the loudest”, ” cries the most?” “runs the fastest?” and all sorts of important issues.
It was a free for all, no Mommy and Daddy scolding, that is – more a perk, not a rule.
Honor and laughs were on the line. The gladiators fought with all their might.
They attacked, parried, and run… for flag and glory!
Referee tried to be as impartial as he could. All pretenses to sobriety, however, went with the wind when an offending noodle landed on his side.
Pretending to protect the underdog, he dished whacks of his own.
The gladiators, of course, did not take the attacks sitting down. They fought and schemed ….
…executed the plan,
until finally, the unjust referee was vanquished.
For his punishment, the Referee had to carry the victorious gladiators all over the place amidst giggling and squealing and requests for more.
~THE END ~
The Gladiators thank Grandpop for the wonderful shields. He made the shield especially for the little fighters. Special thanks too to Grandma and Grandpop for the props, stage direction, and location. 🙂
