Make believe. We stopped playing it for the most part as we got older, but I can remember being in my front yard, throwing a ball up in the air and swinging my Wiffle bat trying to connect and imagining myself in the clutch during the World Series. I also remember grabbing sticks and imagining they are swords and fighting dragons. As I’ve grown older, I see my kids play make believe, and I see my son doing the same sorts of things that I used to do… man, I hope I didn’t look that goofy.
