Question of the day

I don’t think I really liked recess. The bullies bugged me, the jocks didn’t impress me. I would have preferred to just read or just watch the other kids. I honestly can’t remember anything I liked about recess, other than getting out of class. Maybe chatting with my like-minded friends.
Oh wait, there were honeysuckles growing up against the playground fence, and I liked tasting the “honey” from them. But no sooner did I start to enjoy it than it was forbidden. Blah.
I loved to play 4 square and jumping rope. We used to play so many jump rope games. They don’t seem to do it anymore.
I loved recess. I played ropes too and on the playground, I’d love to do some gymnastics.
I enjoyed hanging out with my friends, mostly. In grade school, we had stuff, and I liked the swings best, but once we got into junior high (now known as middle school), we didn’t have stuff on the playground, except for a couple of basketball nets. So we just hung out, talking.
We had no playground equipment. Our “playground” was the church parking lot. Nothing to climb on (legally), no swings, not even any stuff painted on the ground. I really liked playing on the public school’s playground, but didn’t get to do that at recess.
Other than hanging out with my friends, I’d say hopscotch or jump rope. We played double dutch, and Chinese jump rope a lot. I liked tetherball until it hit me in the face and broke my nose.
Chinese jump rope. Was that with the elastic thingy that we’d keep at our ankles and you’d cross them with your feet? I just loved that. I loved the running in and out of jumping. I think it’s sad that kids don’t do this anymore. I asked Trin and she looked at me like I was a crazy person. Not that I’m not but this was so much fun. I can remember tying one end of the jump robe to the latch of the garage door so two of us could play.
Yes!! The schools these days probably don’t even have them! 😦
I also remember sitting in the grass and playing those finger games with yarn. Kids now just want to watch tv. I think it’s really sad.
Or making bracelets and necklaces out of those white flowers/weeds. Or collecting helicopters and throwing them the air. I just did that the other day with Bailey. I said we did that for fun when I was a kid, he laughed!
I don’t let Bailey sit and watch TV if he’s able to be outside….he’d never choose to sit inside anyway. I’m lucky that way!
Oh.. I loved Chinese jump rope!!
Probably the rings and monkey bars.
Playing on the bars. My girlfriends and I did some cool stunts.
MARBLES!!! Gosh… come to think of it I dont even know if I’ve even seen any marbles in stores lately./
Don’t tell me you lost your marbles . . . .
There were ping pong tables and I LOVED playing during recess.
