When Summer Is Just Too Long...
I was just washing dishes when I heard this loud banging sound outside. I looked out the window and two boys (probably around 12) are taking turns hitting a metal desk with baseball bats. I just had to laugh. It made me think of summers from my childhood, I could've been found engaging in a similar activity. Except in my version of banging on a desk, my mom would've put an end to it and I would've spent the rest of the day in my room thinking about my behavior. I spent a good portion of the 80's thinking about my behavior. I think that's one of the reasons I love my neighborhood--there's always kids outside playing and actually being kids.
