How to win?
Just tell me one of your greatest memories about elementary school.
“Does anyone remember playing high-jump, where you’d knot rubber bands together to form a rope held taut at each end by one of your friends? We’d all take turns jumping over it, as the rubber-brand rope got lifted higher and higher, from ankle height to hip to waist to shoulder and so on until it finally reached “heads,” and then crested at one-inch above that. You’d have to jump over each height level cleanly, without letting a foot or ankle pull down the rope, before you could go on to attempt the next level higher. “Heads” was always my nemesis. Until the day it wasn’t. I clearly remember that moment in first grade. I steeled myself, stared down that rubber-band chain, and went for it. Over I went, clearing for the first time “heads.” I remember the elation I felt, like the world was all of a sudden mine, like a new door had been flung open. Of course, I was brought back to Earth when I landed — twisting my left ankle in the process. My leg was in a cast for weeks afterward. But hey, that’s a whole ‘nother story.”
