How To Fly A Kite

  1. Attend a kid’s birthday party at the Two Rivers Wildlife Park along the Mira.
  2. Stand on a grassy hill.
  3. Check wind speeds and direction by doing that thing where you stick your finger in your mouth and then hold it (your finger) up in the air. (Optional)
  4. Take your party-favour kite, put the reel in a child’s hands, and throw the kite into the wind.
  5. Take the line in your hands, to prevent decapitation of nearby children when the wind changes direction.
  6. Smile (someone’s taking a picture).
