On Monday, Mom and I went to the park to play and feed the ducks. The ducks were unusually hungry and mobbed us. The playground was equally exciting: I went down the slide by myself and went on the swing by myself! I know what you are asking yourself - did I use a stunt double? No, really, it was all me! Was I under the influence of some mind altering substance? I don't think so, but it was pretty hot outside. My brain could have very well been melting and mixing up my neurons' messages.
There was a boy 3 months my junior, his mom called him Jude, who went down one of the slides backwards. I was inspired and thought I'd give it a try.
At least I tried. Lots of successful people start by failing. Henry Ford's first two car companies failed. Maybe that isn't the best example. Michael Jordon was kicked off of his high school basketball team. I doubt it was for his lack of skills though. Anyway, you get my point. In the words of Dan Quayle, ‘You always pass failure on the way to success.' Oh, never mind, let's move on.
I remembered what Super Why said when Princess Presto couldn't do her princess twirl: keep trying. I moved over to a different slide and thought about Uncle Jeff sliding down the slide on this very playground. I wanted to go down the slide just like Uncle Jeff. Check it out!
Watch out world! The Josher is letting loose!
