We have an old house so we have to go to the water store and use tanks to get our water. In the summer we went there because we were filling our pool and we wanted to play in the mud. We got in the mud and it was as thick as tar. My foot got stuck and my friend tried to help, but she fell in too. We were as helpless as turtles on their backs. We called for my dad and he helped us out. My shoe got stuck and we never saw it again. We cleaned ourselves off and the dried mud left on our skin made us look like an elephant with dry skin. We got home and washed off completely and were never allowed to go in the mud again.
