When I roll home late at night, I love to stop by the playground and not swing on the swingset but, instead, hang upside down from it — straining my arms and feeling the strength of the chains in my hands, trying to let my hair touch the ground. (It’s not long enough anymore, but still.)

To round out the night, I also do a fast climb on the jungle gym and dismount it from the slide. And I hate sliding boards, but something about the wee hours of the night emboldens me.

Why do I do this? Because I can. Because someday I might have to tell my kid to be careful and to not do those very things, but I know just how much fun they really are. 🙂
