Christmas came early

Mary grabbed the empty bottle from my hand as I walked toward the door.

“Hey, give me that,” I declared with a smile.

She laughed and banged it on the ground. The bounce made her laugh. So the 2-liter Pepsi bottle that was destined for the recycling bin ended up being a toy for about 45 minutes.

She banged it off the wall, refrigerator, floor, couch and my leg. She noticed that the booms sounded different.

She’d also try to drink from it. It was quite a sight. The bottle, almost as big as she is, held aloft as she tried to get something, anything, out of the bottle.
