The holidays are the best time of the year because my brother and me get to spend more time at home, playing complex games and most importantly spend time with our friend Drill who visits his aunt every summer. We get to play our favorite game, where we roll each other in inside an old tire. Unlike Jem and Drill, I was playful and liked to explore and take risks to test my limits, broaden my knowledge and understanding of different aspects of life and discover and improve my skills and abilities. One day Drill, Jim and me were playing our usual game, rolling each other in an old tire when I got a new idea of where to roll the tire next. When it was my turn, I decided to roll the old in front of the Radley steps to make the game more challenging and interesting. Since my brother had pushed the tire with all his energy, I couldn’t catch up with the tire. Besides feeling suffocated and uneasy, I couldn’t stretch my arms to slow down or stop the tire since my hands were wedged between my chest and knees. My play mates did not take it kindly because they cared for my safety. Drill and Jem panicked and couldn’t help but wonder if I was okay. I realized my upbringing also influenced people I spent leisure and quality time; games I play and risks I take when playing with Dill and Jem. I discovered that, I lived like boys and engaged in risky games that could potentially harm me physically. However, this aspect of the game did not seem to bother me. In fact, the thrill prompted me to try again. we re-invented another game from the traditional rolling of tires called ‘Boo Radley.’ The game was more complex and engaging than our previous game because we had to enact an entire Radley family melodrama. At some point we couldn’t agree on most things about the game, leading to disputes and fights that attracted the attention of Atticus. This experience toughened me up and helped me realize that nothing is impossible if I put my mind to it, work hard and approach every challenge with an open mind and willingness to learn.
