Ah, the "terrors" endured due to our childhood perceptions. What a great job you've done centered around a piece of "normal" playground equipment. Delightful and funny!
Ah! Through the eyes of a child some of those slides I had as a child seemed immense and the sheer size of them scared me silly. I loved this story because it bought back such sweet memories of my summers playing on the slides down at the nearby school where I grew up. Thank you.
This could have been written about my first high dive experience. Oye! Loved the humor. Well done!
This story was so cute! There seemed to be a shift in voice toward the end to a more adult-sounding POV, but the images were wonderful. Good work!
Hi Paul. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, The Slide, actually did very well in the Summer Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 2, placing 8th in that Level. Well done!

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.
