He swam up through the water and grabbed onto the side of the pool, panting.

“I didn’t see it down there,” he said to the girl. “I couldn’t find your penny.”

The girl's face showed clear disappointment.

The boy looked up at her. Then he turned around and looked down at the bottom of the pool. “I could go look for it again.”

“Could you please?” she asked sweetly.

He let go of the side of the pool and went back down into the water. The girl watched him go. She turned to her friend.

“There’s no penny down there, you know,” she said.

“I know,” said her friend.

They watched the boy scrape along the bottom of the pool.

06/2/2004 TheBuyer: Thanks for pickin THAT scab, Will.
06/2/2004 Mr. Pony (5): I love it when Disney writes like this. It's relaxing. 4.5!
06/2/2004 qualcomm (3): i should give this even fewer stars, but i'm feeling uncommonly warm towards disney the man.
06/2/2004 Will Disney: thanks, lerpa.
06/2/2004 Mr. Pony: It was the short! It made you love him!
06/2/2004 scoop (2): When Disney writes like what Pony, boring and unfunny?
06/2/2004 Mr. Pony: No, I mean leisurely and restrained, like in the above short. Also here. You should try reading these! I think you'll like them!
06/2/2004 scoop: I did read them! I voted on them! Maybe you didn't see that! This one sucks! Maybe you should read it again! I think you won't like it!
06/2/2004 Mr. Pony: No, I totally still like it! I'm sorry that even though I saw your vote, I assumed that you hadn't read the shorts in question, but surely fans of this short will understand my mistake! So you don't like this short! I guess that's great!
06/2/2004 scoop: Yes I'm sure all two of this shorts fans will understand your mistake! So you like this short and gave it as high a rating as shorts that are funnier and written better! That's great! I guess we'll agree to disagree! Like scientists and evangelical christians!
06/2/2004 Mr. Pony: Are you really suggesting that questions of objective fact (i.e. where did the universe come from?) exist along the same axis as the more relative questions of humor? (i.e. is this funny?) That's neat! Oh well! Say hi to "Jehovah" for me the next time you're deep in prayer!
06/2/2004 Mr. Joshua: Pony funny. Scoop funny too.
06/2/2004 qualcomm: you're both wrong! pony, you are because this short's a stinker, and scoop, you are too, for the simple fact of not being me!
06/2/2004 Will Disney: lerpa, you jackass.
06/2/2004 annebot (4): careful little boys, if you scrape the bottom of the pool too many times your penis will become crooked. It's a medical fact.
06/2/2004 Will Disney: thanks for the heads up annebot!
06/3/2004 scoop: I just did finished talking to "Jehovah" while in deep, rapturous paryer. He told me tell you that he totally agrees with you -- he likes this short as well. He also told me to tell you that you are one of his favorites.
06/3/2004 Mr. Pony: You tell him to leave me alone!! I don't want to see him!! I'm a grown-up now!!
