I am impressed. A day spent entirely outside winning various contests and participating in challenging physical activities. Finally, a time set aside to test real strengths.
Ability. Agility. Wit. Fortitude. Leadership.
I excelled. I brought home several blue ribbons. Whenever I could force a boy to get a red ribbon, I felt particularly gratified.
At the end of the day, we got to show off our ribbons. I couldn't wait to display mine.
There was one dark spot. (Isn't there always?)
The stupid "Eat A Cracker, Don't Swallow, And Try To Whistle" game. Three years, I tried to win this task. For three years, I have failed.
Until it finally dawned on me.....I can't whistle. So, why would I be able to with dry saltines in my mouth?
For all remaining Super Kids Days, I bypassed this game with my nose in the air.
