We wanted to go as fast as possible on the playground. It didn't matter if that big rickety merry-go-round sucked someone under or threw someone off - we were going to go as fast as possible, so hold on tight!
And if we weren't going as fast as possible, it as as HIGH as possible! It's a miracle our teachers let us do it, but we would stand on the swings and go as high as possible, and sometimes jump off! And you know what? We survived.
