Patrick has a waterfall in his backyard. Well, it’s more of a canyon ridge than a traditional backyard, but it does house a well timed waterfall. A sprinkler is hung up on a small tree and water cascades down the rock face every day at 3 p.m. The steep grade of the hill discourages any attempts to free the sprinkler head and everyone knows to avoid the flow. It’s a lazy waterfall. Not that the waterfall is lazy, but it cascades because of apathy.
