She Swings

When i was in kindergarten, i use to walk to school of course-across a major thoroughfare by the way. I would go over there to play until i was about 10 or so also.

They had a heavy duty swing set as most elementary schools do and I will never forget-there was this one girl who could swing higher than anyone- male, female, adult, whatever. She went 2 feet higher than anyone else I’d say. When you were 100 yds away you knew if she was on those swings-I never knew her name but she REALLY impressed me. I’m sure i saw her for 2 years or more there on the school playground.

Anyway i was stunned that no matter how i tried i couldn’t get that height or even close. This was my first major realization that i could NOT do anything i wanted athletically despite my considerable skills. Other people had mysterious abilities that i couldn't match.

Almost none of that is the point of the story though.

45 plus years later, I run into this guy from my general neighborhood-my age or close but somehow i had never known him. After a minute or so I said something like “I use to play at Ridgeway School a lot.” His reply? “Really? Do you remember that girl who use to go so high on those swings?”
