You may not know this about me but I received Military training when I was younger. I had almost forgotten all about it, but during my trip down to LA while listening to the kids playing in backyard behind my parents house, it all came back to me.

When I was in grade school each summer I would go through Military training. Of course my parents had no idea. They did not see things for what they really were.

I had many training tools to use. One of my favorites was to help me train invasion techniques. To run and dive without fear into the enemy bunker. Of course my parents saw the tool as being just a Slip 'N' Slide, but I knew it was government propaganda to get me ready for WW3.

There was also the Evil Dangerous Clown fountain, the Octopus head and Grenade wars- Water Balloon fights. The Octopus helped you learn to deal with Pain as you would often end up with large welts if you got too near to its water-shooting tentacles.

The danger clown was far more insidious. He would smile at you like an enemy soldier trying to lull you into a false sense of security. His hat would float above his head spraying water all over the place. The moment you interrupted the water flow the hat would come crashing down upon you. You had to be fast and cunning to beat the Evil Clown. Never trust the enemy and moving fast was the key.
