Tanbark and Tom

In by Lara on November 11, 2010 at 9:15 pm

When I was younger, the best time was recess. I was never one for the books. Sometimes I’d play on the monkey bars, sometimes the sand pen. But my favorite was the swings, jump off when it reached its highest point, and tumble onto the tanbark, getting splinters and small gashes. My friend Tom was pretty snotty, but he always came to my rescue when I’d stupidly jump. He always had band-aids. Then he’d tell me my skin looked like marshmallows, my hair like brown sugar. I thought he was weird. But that was how second grade was, I guess.
