Swinging under the stars… by Mikael

Sigh… I have so many hobbies. But like my previous 30 Day Meme post, who wants to post the usual like hang with friends, watch movies, and play video games? Let’s be original. ;)

Perhaps one of my very favorite hobbies includes two of my favorite things. Swings and stars.

I don’t know what it is about swings but they make me extremely happy. Swinging back and forth, with a friend or sans friend, and then spinning the swing until it’s so tight that when it’s released, you spin reallyreallyreally fast. Doing that in the dead of night with the stars alight above me for my viewing pleasure–pure bliss.

The only thing that puts a damper on it is when the cops come and say to leave (because I’m clearly not selling drugs or doing other criminal activity) since it is after 10. Biggest disappointment ever. But then I usually go back after they leave… hello? Since when do I, a law abiding citizen, obey the police? Haha.

The swing was cool when I was younger, but I really liked the slide. Using a burlap bag when it was so hot it would blister your legs or sand other times to get that speed. And then there was the “merry-go-round” Get it spinning as fast as you could and lie down and hope you didn’t slide off. Boy did you bring back some fun memories.
