Goin' for the Record

Post by Bejami »

My brother won't push me. He says it isn't safe, but he just wants to keep the record.

Perfect conditions: snowed, melted, refroze. So slick.

“Bail out before the road,” he calls. Sore loser.

No cars. Barrel right through to the other side.

One more short downhill. Now to coast as far as possible.

I'm lighter. My top speed isn't as high, but I coast farther. The record is mine.

I'm speeding up somehow.

Now I understand his warning. This is the one path down the hill that doesn't end in a hay field.

I'm on the pond.

It's all fun and games until somebody gets frozen.
