Remember back in school...grade school, elementary school or what some call primary school??? For some of us that was in the last decade, century or nearly the last millenium! That was a time when we were about
6 years old to maybe 11 or 12. A time when you still rode in the back seat, didn't care that much if your socks matched your outfit but did worry if that special 'boy' or 'girl' noticed you.
If you can remember that far back, what was your favorite thing to do on recess?
Did you play ball, go on the swings and slide or visit with your friends? Or were you one of those who didn't like recess? Yep, those type existed. Maybe your favorite thing was to tell secrets about
who 'liked' who...lol What did YOU like to do at recess?
For me I don't remember too much about
recess except the swings. I used to like them until I got smacked in the head by someone who was on a swing. I caught her shoes on my right temple. That was no fun. I also remember baseball and one boy was always left out and made me sad. He was what we called 'slow' back then but Johnny (that was his real name...lol) was a happy kid and didn't understand the others were teasing him. It made me mad. One day he was playing catcher and the kid at bat swung and caught Johnny in the head and knocked him cold. He survived but is sure didn't help his mental functions any. Mostly I just visited with some friends or the teachers on duty. My dad was a teacher and I could see his classroom and shop building from the playground. I wanted to go be with dad and mess around the shop...lol Silly me! So now you know my take on recess...what did YOU like to do at recess when you were in elementary school?
