It probably wasn't the safest thing to do, but it sure was fun. We'd pull the wagon up the neighbor's long blacktop driveway then tuck inside the old metal wagon. Slowly we'd start to gain speed as we sped along the gentle slope. Stopping was tough! We'd put out our feet and drag our sneakers until we finally slowed to a stop.

I tried this ride a few months ago with my daughter. It ended with her falling out. She's fine, don't worry; ready to do it again. The kid in me will try again, but the Daddy will be a little more careful next time.

I like your style here! Somehow, it's both child-like and sophisticated at the same time.

i instantly thought of calvin and hobbes and how calvin would always have a philosophical epiphany while riding down a dangerous hill in his red wagon

Almost as if there were a brayer drug across the page. Cut paper complements the raw textures.
