Ready or not, here I come!

Back in the old days we’d be get­ting antsy right about one-​thousand-​twenty, one-​thousand-​twenty-​one, one-thousand-twenty-two…

But today we can just pass the time tex­ting or play­ing a game (until you score and your “WOOHOO!” gives your hid­ing place away).

I am not a fan of oranges and browns, so I super­sat­u­rat­ed these col­ors almost to the point of pop art. I find the orig­i­nal image far more relax­ing; it does­n’t con­vey the play­ful­ness of hide & seek, nor of autumn. How­ev­er, the pat­tern in the bark is fascinating.

Now go hide while I start counting…

That’s “Before Com­put­ers” and “Before Cell­phones.” Hide & Seek (no bat­ter­ies required). Met­al skates (no hel­mets, no kneepads). When we scraped our knuck­les on Flexy-​Riders, got soaked skid­ding down our Slip & Slides (see my AmperBr& piece on that one), or sim­ply played check­ers (with a real board and real play­ing pieces). Sim­ple, fun times, but I do enjoy test­ing my skills with the Lumos­i­ty app.
