He took two planks of wood and made hisself a cross. Pretending he was being crucified. I was trying to take these pictures without him seeing. At one point, me and Tyler thought he was gonna pull a Peter and go the upside down route.
The HT wasn’t home when the crucifixion took place. We were telling her about it and we were talking about how hysterical it was and how many kids do you know that would play something like that.
Me and my sister used to play church all the time and baptized each other many a time every summer in the swimming pool.
The HT said…”That’s, like….weird…..” May be, but, we didn’t have cable, video games, computers, blah, blah…we walked to school in 10 feet of snow barefoot (no we didn’t) and back in those days, we played and actually, like, used our imaginations. We were some playing kids. Serious play.
The Collie Sisters did play us some Church now. We’d take turns preaching, singing, all that. I’m sure our sermons were some sorta powerful.
We also used to…on all those long, tedious trips to various antique malls, furniture stores (our mother loved to go to furniture stores, yet, I don’t remember there always being new furniture purchased. We had the same couch from the time I was in Kindergarten until after I married and moved away. I guess that was her diversion.) Anyhoo…we’d go along to these furniture store trips and we’d act like we were foreign and like we spoke Spanish or something. The funny part to me is we actually thought we were fooling people. This woulda been about the time this fabulous picture was taken…back when we often were dressed alike….I mean, look at that face….is that a face of a kid who had imagination?
And what color is that Dad had on? We was stylin’.
I was pretty glad #2 provided a little comic relief today. It was needed.
